Updated at 2:42pm

COLORADO CITY, Texas (AP) — The mother of a missing 13-year-old cheerleader has bonded out of jail.

Billie Jean Dunn posted $6,500 bail in Texas on Friday, a day after police say she lied about the whereabouts of her boyfriend.

The boyfriend, Shawn Adkins, was previously named a person of interest in the teen’s disappearance.

Dunn was arraigned in Colorado City on charges of misdemeanor hindering prosecution, possession of a dangerous drug and giving a false report to an officer.

Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs says Dunn lied to a police officer about Adkins.

Adkins was named as a person of interest several days after Dunn reported her daughter, Hailey Darlene Dunn, missing Dec. 28. He was never charged in her disappearance.

COLORADO CITY, Texas (AP) — Police say a Texas woman whose 13-year-old daughter is missing lied about the whereabouts of her boyfriend, who was previously named a person of interest in Hailey Darlene Dunn’s disappearance.

Billie Jean Dunn was in court in Colorado City Friday on charges of misdemeanor hindering prosecution, possession of a dangerous drug and giving a false report to an officer.

Officers arrested Dunn Thursday night when officers found Shawn Adkins at her home after she denied he was there.

Dunn reported Hailey as missing Dec 28.

Mitchell County Sheriff Patrick Toombs says officers did not arrest Adkins and declined to explain why they were looking for him.

Dunn is being held on $6,500 bond and has declined to have an attorney appointed.
