A symbol of hope is now overgrown with weeds. A garden dedicated to once missing teen Hailey Dunn, Hailey's Hope, is no longer.

This is after her father, Clint, stopped taking care of the garden planted by searchers. Searchers say they left messages for Clint, letting him know they wanted to take care of the garden. They never heard from him. This week, the city notified the search center that they would be cleaning out the garden, and that the searchers needed to take anything they wanted to keep.

Now, searchers have cleared out the garden and are searching for a permanent place to put it. Saying they'd like to find an area in Colorado City to keep Hailey's memory alive.
