Search for missing McCleary girl ramps up

11:00 PM PDT on Friday, July 3, 2009

Video: Big push to find missing McCleary girl
 Larger screen E-mail this clip

   
McCLEARY, Wash. - Investigators searching for a missing 10-year-old girl hope someone’s habits will help them find her.

Ten-year-old Lindsey Baum was last seen walking home from a friend’s house last Friday night around 9 p.m.

Exactly one week later, local police, Grays Harbor County deputies and officers from several surrounding communities hit the streets of McCleary, in case a witness they haven’t spoken with happens to be in town.

Investigators hope to speak with someone who always stops in McCleary on Friday nights for a beer, or who works out of town during the week and has not been available to investigators.

“It’s going to look like a police convention is in town,” said Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott.

does stuff like this make sense to anyone

this guy is 32, lives in elma, right by mccleary,
having a party,
13 yr old asks where he lives, says she'll try to make it to his party
says her mom wants to know if it is an all night thing

wth?  your mom will allow you to go to a party all night at some 32 yr old's house you don't know? 
there are some of the mccleary girls friends on this page too

I just think this stuff is crazy

http://www.myspace.com/246336905
Having raised two girls, I can totally tell you this makes no sense at all. I'm very disturbed by this. A 32 yr old having a party is one thing, a 32 yr old having a party inviting young girls is a whole other issue.

I was disturbed too hon, but I looked around a bit.

I don't think this is a 32 yr old guy. I think it's a young kid that just lists that as his age, perhaps to hide from his parents looking for a "younger" him. If you read the comments going back to 2007, they ask him if he is going out with such and such, do you like amanda, talks about seeing him at a school dance etc.. They are all comments from young kids.

If you look at his details, he says he has some college and makes 250k a year...ummm yeah and I am Geoffry the Toys R Us Giraffe.

Thanks Red.

This Canadian and hubby are being afforded the priviledge of driving across the nearby  border and joining youngest son's Dutch American inlaws as they celebrate along with neighbors, friends and family in their small Dairy community where the American flag is fixture on most front yards.

“Waiting for a call of hope

McCLEARY — On the night before Independence Day, the Baum family wasn’t making plans to drive around and scope out store parking lots for the best viewing spot for fireworks displays, as they’ve done in years past.

Instead, their total focus is on the search for 10-year-old Lindsey Baum, who mysteriously vanished a week ago Friday evening on her way home from a friend’s house.

“We’ve just been sitting by the phone, waiting for a call of hope,” said Melissa McCann, a close family friend of the Baums.

McCann’s family, along with what seemed to be everyone in town, spent Friday  placing donation jars in businesses, handing out fliers and continuing their own searches through town.

As the one-week anniversary of the evening of Lindsey’s disappearance approached, investigators concentrated on developing a profile of what the town might have looked like exactly a week earlier.

“We’re trying to re-create a snapshot as best we can of how McCleary looks on a Friday night,” according to Undersheriff Rick Scott.

He said law enforcement officials would be concentrating on traffic that comes into town Friday evenings, specifically between the hours of 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ,the hour, when Lindsey disappeared while walking home from a friend’s house.

“We’ll be checking to see what businesses are open, what their customer base is. ... We’ll be flooding the corridor to see who travels though town on a regular basis at that hour.”
 

 


He said law enforcement officers would be focusing on questioning people like couriers or delivery workers, whose jobs regularly bring them through town Friday nights, on the theory that perhaps one of them might have seen something that could lead investigators to Lindsey’s whereabouts.

“We’ll be talking to people who may have been out that night, whether it was to walk a dog, go to a store, or water their flowers.”

Baum’s father, who lives in Tennessee, had booked a flight to Grays Harbor this weekend, but Scott said he wasn’t scheduled to arrive until late Friday night.

He added that sheriff Mike Whelan has volunteered to spend extra hours on the case.

“I told him to ‘dust off your boots and grab a notebook.’ ”

DEAD ENDS

Scott said investigators have been following every tip that comes in, but so far most have come to a dead end.

Late this week, investigators had sent Baum’s computer in for forensic testing. Scott said investigators had been able to gather some preliminary information, but it had “yielded nothing.”

Authorities in Thurston and Mason counties have also been searching logging roads, but none have turned up anything, Scott said.

He added that the Sheriff’s Office has asked private land owners, and officials with the State Department of Natural Resources and the state Department of Fish & Wildlife to check rural areas as they have time, but none have found any more clues.

Scott said in the coming days, the Sher iff’s Office would also be re-examining interviews that have already been conducted to see if any would warrant any follow-up questions.

The task may become more difficult as the weekend progresses, Scott said.  Today and tomorrow the size of law enforcement teams will be “scaled down somewhat” to provide security at Independence Day events throughout the county, Scott said. He also expects many more people to pass through town because of the holiday.

“It’s both a good and a bad thing,” Scott said. “We’ll have more traffic passing through  McCleary, and we’ll be talking with as many people as we can. But with the sheer volume (of traffic) we hope it won’t be problematic.”

As to when or if the search will expand to western parts of Grays Harbor and past the borders of neighboring counties, that depends on what happens by the end of the weekend.

“We’re going to evaluate everything and see what we need to do next,” Scott said. “As the ripples expand further, the miles of logging roads of timberland become so huge we can’t thoroughly search that. It’ll take a long time. The plan for next week will depend on what we can find out Saturday and Sunday.”

New push on to find missing McCleary girl

MCCLEARY, Wash. - Exactly one week after a 10-year-old girl vanished in this small Western Washington mill town, detectives are out in force trying to find leads to help solve her disappearance.

Lindsey Baum was last seen between 9 and 10 p.m. on Friday, June 26, as she walked home from a friend's home who lives about four or five blocks away.

An intense ground and aerial search carried out over the following days failed to turn up any clues, and searchers scaled back their efforts Thursday.

But now Lindsey's disappearance is being publicized in a new way, as folks hand out fliers to people driving through town in hopes of finding the missing girl.

One of those taking part in the latest effort is Duane Norris, who is doing what he can to keep Lindsey's picture out there and to keep the search alive.

"The thing about it is, all it takes is one tip," he says.

Lindsey was last seen at the corner of 6th and Maple heading home from her friend's house at about 9:15 p.m last Friday.

Detectives will be out in force at that same day and time this week to see who's around - and who may have been passing through town last Friday night.

They're willing to do anything to help kick loose a lead.

Fonda Voss is making sure visitors to nearby Straddleline ORV park are being reminded about Lindsey's disappearance. It's a big travel destination and one of the entrances to the Capitol Forest.

"The trails are very big. The Capitol Forest is 80,000 acres. Just keeping people aware when they're out on the trail to just keep their eyes open. It's a big area out there," she says.

At the request of the FBI, Clear Channel Communications also has agreed to put an alert about Lindsey up on their brand new digital billboards through the Kent Valley.

On Friday, Lola Kling of Kent passed through McCleary.

"I am so happy about that," she said of the new digital bulletins. "I'm really hoping that we can find this little girl."

Detectives are asking anyone to report if they've seen anything suspicious, if they've seen the little missing girl or anything out of the ordinary. They want to bring Lindsey home on the one-week anniversary of her disappearance.

A tipline has been set up at (866) 915-8299.

Meanwhile, FBI agents will be working through the holiday weekend, following up on dozens of tips that continue to come in.

Lindsey is 4-foot-9, 80 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes, and was last seen wearing a light blue hooded pullover shirt and blue jeans.

One of the reader comments .  Anyone local or if Kara comes by, can you please explain why Forks?

This girl twitters, does Facebook and prolly has a cellphone, too. What do parents expect? Ten year olds do not need these things. This child most likely is far away from that town with someone she met via one of the above. Hope she comes home soon.

Of course, if she is not found soon they should look up in Forks.

Pink Angel, I see what you mean.    I have to realize also that a lot of teens put stuff out on myspace for a reaction, good or bad.

However ... Lindsey Baum is not a teen.  She is a ten year old child whose access to the internet and other age inappropriate activities can be controlled or denied through parental supervision.

I was in Walmart and our mall yesterday and made a conscious effort to spot even "one" preteen who was not accompanied by at least one adult.  It did not happen.

Good Morning no rose colored glasses.  Good Morning Monkeys.

I pray that this will be the day that answers are forthcoming in the Lindsey Baum case.

I am not implying that this is connected whatsoever, just want to point out that there is a drug ring in that area.

Three in Elma part of massive drug bust
<snipped>
Federal drug and immigration agents arrested three Elma men as part of 31 recent arrests announced Thursday for allegedly distributing methamphetamine from Mexico up the West Coast. They carried unusually powerful weaponry and injected a dangerous new factor into drug crime in the region.

U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced Juan Antonio Trejo-Lopez, 30, Juan Trejo-Lopez, 37, and Eduardo Martinez, 27, were all arrested June 13 near Elma during the execution of federal search warrants.

The agents busted the drug-trafficking ring that distributed methamphetamine and cocaine from Mexico in Washington state.

 A .50-caliber Desert Eagle pistol, AK-47-type semiautomatic assault rifle and 14 other weapons shown to reporters were among 23 guns seized in Operation Arctic Chill when 35 search warrants were served in the past two weeks. Also seized were 19 pounds of methamphetamine, a quarter-pound of cocaine, 22 vehicles and $60,000 in cash.

THE DAILY WORLD Volunteer Jeff Strege of Puyallup walks with Josh Baum, the brother of missing 10-year-old Lindsey Baum, and Lindsey’s dog Kadence, in downtown McCleary Friday. In the background, McCleary resident Neil Newell hands out informational fliers to passing motorists.

I know and agree, I'm just overwhelmed by these young girls being able to do all these things, and they are to young, and not a whole lot of supervision.

It scares the hell out of me. Not only for Lindsey and Kayla but also for the thousands and thousands of Lindsey and Kayla's. Lindsey isn't the first and unfortunately won't be the last unless parents start stepping up.

My daughter who is 22 was going there with some friends, who all like the Twilight books. I have never read them, do know what they are about, is this not a little advanced for a 10 year old? I would think so, being that both daughters 22 and 24 read these books, could not imagine them reading these books if they were aimed at the younger kids

Thanks No Rose, I am not familiar with this case, but thought I would pop in and have a look see.

One thing that popped into my mind in this article the mom says she has long fingernails, her brother is proof of that.

Is this the same brother that is going to juvi tomorrow? Just thought I would throw this out there, maybe nothing, but I am going to read backwards.

no rose, when I went to see the movie the theater was packed with tweens. The first book is tame, they get more mature each book. imo
