Lindsey Baum’s Remains Found

Officials say the remains of Lindsey Baum, a McCleary girl missing since 2009, have been found in eastern Washington. Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott said Thursday at a news conference that the remains were found by hunters last September.

The remains were then sent to FBI headquarters in Quantico, Virginia for analysis and authorities matched DNA.

No arrests have been made. Scott said detectives are doing everything they can to find out who was responsible for Lindsey’s death.

The 10-year-old was last seen the night of June 26, 2009, when she left a friend’s home. She was going to walk the four blocks to her house but never arrived.
