'We've brought Lindsey home': Missing McCleary girl Lindsey Baum's remains found

Lindsey Baum

"Full of life, from the day she was born, we used to tease her that she came out of the womb talking", said her mother Melissa Baum.

Scott wouldn't specify where the girl's remains were found in Eastern Washington during the press conference, but said it was a remote area frequented by hunters.

The body of Lindsey Baum, a 10-year-old girl who went missing in McCleary, Washington nine years ago, has been recovered, according to an announcement from Grays Harbor Sheriff Rick Scott Thursday afternoon.

Authorities identified people of interest over the years but there were no major leads or arrests. Scott did not say where the remains were found or in what condition.

"I was glad to bring some element of closure to what had happened to her", Scott said Thursday.

Baum was 10 years old when she disappeared while walking home from a friend's house on June 26, 2009. That was not the outcome that the family wanted to hear, ' Scott said of Lindsey's families reaction to her finding.

In 2015, the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office sent out an updated missing persons flier for Baum.

Though Lindsey was a bright and bubbly girl, always full of energy, Melissa said in an interview with CrimeWatch Daily previous year that her daughter seemed to have a premonition.


Investigators have over the years released surveillance video, one showing a white truck and a man who went into a convenience store on the night Baum disappeared, reports CBS affiliate KIRO. "We need those people to have the courage to come forward and share that information - anonymously, through a text message, however they wish to convey that".

He said authorities would release few details about the discovery and what has now become a kidnapping and homicide investigation.

At that time, posters of Baum at age 10 had been traveling around the country on 10 Gordon Trucking trailers since 2010.

Seattle police also searched a rural, wooded residence near Shelton once occupied by a fourth Emery brother who recently died.

But none of the brothers have been charged with any crimes in connection to Baum's disappearance.

"There's someone out there we knows who did this and how this happened", Scott said.

There is a $35,000 reward to find Baum.
