Lindsey Baum--Still missing from McCleary, Washington

27 August, 2009

On June 26, 2009, 11-year-old Lindsey Baum headed out the door of her friend’s house in McCleary and never made it the few short blocks to her own home.

After weeks of endless searching, family members and investigators have found no trace of the outgoing brown-haired Girl Scout. But they continue to rally support and pursue clues as the days drag on...

Baum disappeared June 26 while walking a short distance along Maple Street late in the evening. The 4-foot-9 girl was wearing a light blue hooded shirt and jeans at the time.

Two neighbors spotted her about halfway home, but never saw anything suspicious. Despite a massive search involving multiple law enforcement agencies, investigators have found no evidence explaining her disappearance.

A KlaasKIDS Foundation news release said new searchers and volunteers will gather Thursday night at the McCleary Community Center on Simpson Avenue to learn more about the organizations and sign up for weekend search parties.

The organization said volunteers will also be able to sign up between 9:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. on Friday for search area assignments. All volunteers must be at least 18 years old with photo identification

The organizations stated they hope local businesses or families can donate bottled water, office supplies or copying facilities. For information on making donations, call the Laura Recovery Center at 1-866-898-5723.
Scott said investigators from the Sheriff’s Office, the McCleary Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation met Tuesday to compare notes and discuss available resources.“The case shows progress,” he said, stating detectives at a minimum have ruled out many possibilities. Scott said the planned weekend searches are separate from law enforcement efforts, but he hopes they may be able to find something new....Viable
