She said the latest development was “important news” and the family were “in pieces”.
“I just want to urge Mrs Sacoolas to come back to the UK and do the right thing,” she said.
“Face justice and maybe then our two families can come together after the tragedy and build a bridge.”
Motorcyclist Mr Dunn died in a crash with a car near US military base RAF Croughton on 27 August.
Mrs Sacoolas, the wife of a US intelligence official, claimed diplomatic immunity and returned home.
The 42-year-old was charged with causing death by dangerous driving in December, but an extradition request was rejected.
An Interpol Red Notice – a request to law enforcement worldwide to locate and provisionally arrest a person pending extradition, surrender, or similar legal action – has now been issued.
On its website, Interpol states a red notice “is an international wanted persons notice, but it is not an arrest warrant”.
