From a web site set up by friends and loved ones asking the world to help find Hailey Dunn.

"They're really good friends, awesome," Hailey's Aunt, Melinda Salazar, said.

To a local radio station's web site everyone is asking "Where is Hailey Dunn?"

National headliner Nancy Grace asked thousands of her viewers to look out for the teen first on television and now thousands more can view her story on CNN's Web site.

On Facebook, people are reaching out to Hailey's family.

"I've got 150 to 200 people that have added me in the last few week," Salazar said. "I'm posting everything I can find on Facebook, they're posting it. We're calling, sending text messages. Everything we can think of."

More than 7,000 people are following the Find Hailey Dunn Facebook page, and has seen more than 5,000 hits on the first story we posted on our website.

So since she went missing over a week ago, thousands, maybe millions have seen her story and her family hopes the word will keep spreading.

"We're not stopping until she's home," Salazar said. "We're not stopping we want her home."
