She left the Village in her 1997 teal green Ford Escort Wagon, and that vehicle was found on Christmas day in the Oaucita National Forest. It had been set on fire.
Dawna is a 911 dispatcher for the Hot Springs Village Police Dept. According to the Arkansas Matters article, “Officers were set to conduct a search last Friday, but it was suspended for them to spend the holidays with their families over the weekend.” For MP advocates, this seems inconceivable and makes me wonder if there was a misquote somewhere. Not only could this person be laying some where in need of help, it is actually one of their own and this is how the Hot Springs Village PD react.
There has also been no word if the police have talked to her boyfriend.
Dawna is 5’6″ tall, with brown hair with blonde highlights and brown eyes.
If you have seen her or have any information, please call the Hot Springs Village Police at 501-922-0011.
