10 year old Lindsey Baum Missing
Lindsey J. Baum was last seen between 9 and 10 p.m. Friday when she left her friend’s home on Maple Street, where she had been visiting, said Dave Pimentel of the Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s Office.
The police are hesitant to refer to the missing girl’s disappearance a case of foul play; however, the more time goes by, the greater the possibility.
The search was resumed Sunday at 6 a.m., but so far with the same futile result as the day before.
Police are hesitant to call the girl’s disappearance a case of foul play just yet, but the girl’s family fears the worst.
“I’ve tried to keep the thought of somebody grabbing her out of my mind,” says her mother, Melissa Baum.
Melissa Baum said Lindsey wasn’t angry Friday night, and left without money, a change of clothes or her cellphone. Police have searched for the girl in the homes of her friends, in case she had been “hiding out.”
“She wouldn’t have run away,” Baum said, her voice hoarse. “If she had been hiding she would have come out by now. She can’t hide that long, she loves to talk.”
The FBI has now joined the investigation and search for missing 10 yea old Lindsey Baum. At this point between the short walk between her home and her friends house and the fact that the community was so small, it is hard to believe that Lindsey did not know her abductor.
