By Michael Slother - email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Hailey Dunn's mother Billie admitted she and her boyfriend Shawn Adkins failed a lie detector test after more than 10 hours of questioning on Thursday's Nancy Grace show.

Police say Adkins was the last person to see Hailey. Billie also told Nancy Grace that Adkins is now staying at one of his relatives.

The search for Hailey has been taken to the air.  A DPS helicopter could be seen over the town for much of Thursday. KCBD witnessed the helicopter hovering over the motel where dogs found Hailey's scent. It also searched wooded areas along interstate 20.

Colorado City city manager Pete Kampfer said authorities are still confident Hailey will be found safe. He said the 9 agency search intensified on Thursday. "They're focusing and getting leads determined and yes they are intensifying," Kampfer said.

Kampfer confirmed that a Texas Ranger signed a search warrant that was executed on Wednesday at the Dunn's home.

Meanwhile the reward for information leading to Hailey's safe return now stands at $15,000.  

The Lamar Advertising company has donated billboard space in cities throughout the state.  The signs are meant to bring public awareness to Hailey's case and the electronic billboards were up Thursday.  Traditional vinyl billboards will still being made Thursday.

The number to call if you can help locate Hailey Dunn is the Colorado City police department at 325-728-5294.
