Searchers were hoping to celebrate Hailey Dunn's sweet sixteen by celebrating with the teen. Instead, they released balloons in her honor.

Orange, purple and white balloons were released at Ruddick Park in Colorado City Wednesday by searchers and community members.

They described it as an emotional experience, but were still glad they can gather to remember the teen.
