COLORADO CITY - The search for the story behind Hailey Dunn's disappearance is making some progress.
A private investigator has now agreed to take on her case for free.
"Hope for Hailey," a group behind Hailey's search made the announcement earlier this week.
The investigator, Mac Sanford of Houston, met with Hailey's mother on Wednesday in Austin and has already started gathering information on the case.
Sanford tells NewsWest 9 that he is doing this pro-bono because he never charges the parents of a missing family.
He also told NewsWest 9 that he is positive Billie Dunn is just a mother who is desperate to bring her daughter back.
