     Since that time, the Sheriff's Office and the Gassville Police have been working jointly, assisted by the Arkansas State Police and the United States Marshals Office, to investigate HALEY SHELL'S disappearance.  Hundreds of manhours have been spent following up on leads and tips, and multiple interviews have been conducted.  Many search warrants and subpoenas have been issued and served on residence(s), cellular phones, other electronic devices, email accounts, and social media accounts, searching for any evidence or clues as to the circumstances of HALEY SHELL'S disappearance and current whereabouts. 

     At the request of the Sheriff's Office, the Arkansas State Police has also issued a "Silver Alert" for HALEY SHELL.

     Law enforcement is again asking the public to contact us with any information they may have regarding this missing juvenile.   By agreement between the two primary agencies, the Baxter County Sheriff's Office has now been designated as the point of contact for tips and information, which will then be disseminated to the Gassville Police and other law enforcement agencies as needed.

     In addition to the regular Sheriff's Office phone numbers, information can be provided to the Sheriff's Office and Gassville Police via the Sheriff's Office tip phone line (870) 424-4636 (INFO) or anonymously through the tip form on our website at:
