MCCLEARY, Wash. (KBKW) - It's been 4 years since McCleary girl Lindsey Baum went missing just blocks away from her home, Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott tells us they're hoping a new photo will shed some light on the investigation "That's something that we've worked with the family to have that put out to the public, in the hopes of again sparking interest in the investigation, maybe jarring someone's memory.
Lindsey Baum was 10 years old when she disappeared on the evening of June 26th 2009, while walking home from a friends house in her hometown of McCleary.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has released an age-progressed photo to show what Baum might look like. Scott said her age makes it difficult to guess what she would look like 4 years later "they did this a while back, the family didn't think that it looked like what they envisioned Lindsey to look like. They've done a new one, and it's pretty good - when I looked at it I thought it was how I would have imagined her to appear."
Lindsey will turn 15 years old on July 7th, at the time of her disappearance she was 4-foot-9, 80 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Lindsey’s mother Melissa, and brother Josh, have since moved out of the McCleary area. The age-progressed photo is expected to be released soon, visit www.missingkids.com for details.
A $35,000 reward continues to be offered for information in the case. If you have any information in the case, please call 1-800-THE-LOST.
