Sunday will mark the one year anniversary that Hailey Dunn's remains were found. The Colorado City cheerleader disappeared just after Christmas 2010.

The family of Hailey Dunn wants a grand jury to either look more closely at the evidence they have or allow the family to bury what's left of Hailey.

On March 16, 2013, Hailey's remains were found less than 20 miles from her home at Lake J.B. Thomas in Snyder. NewsWest 9 spoke with family spokesperson Stacie Campbell who said a petition was started to help speed up the process of bringing Hailey home to lay her to rest.

"The unbelievable outpouring of families of murdered and missing children who really networked with us to get Hailey's signatures. We needed 500 and we got 700. The petition is headed to Scurry County and is going first class," Campbell said.

The petition was started by Michel Gouveia Allen, who was one of the 5,000 members of the website "Hope For Hailey", that's where the initial idea to go ahead with getting better justice for Hailey started.

"The petition says arrest somebody. Convict somebody. Release this baby, let her go home. Let her rest," Campbell said.

The frustration is growing and the family needs some answers on this almost one year anniversary that Hailey's remains had been found.

"Call if you want to, e-mail if you want to. Scurry County, what is going on? Take care of this child," Campbell said.

Once the petition reaches authorities in Scurry County. Campbell is hopeful an encouraging phone call will come on or before the 16th. Campbell goes on with some encouraging words for parents out there.

"Hold onto your children a little closer. Monsters look like friends a lot of the time," Campbell said.

NewsWest 9 tried calling Scurry County Sheriff but there was no response from them.  

The petition has been mailed and should be getting there any day.
