    WA - Lindsey Baum, 10, McCleary, 26 June 2009 - #1

    Police search for 10 year old McCleary girl

    McCleary is a small town, less than 2,000 people, across the Puget Sound from Seattle and not far from the Washington capitol. I hope she hasn't fallen to foul play so dearly, and that she just became disoriented and will be found promptly.

    I found a Myspce that I think is hers. It says 13 (which is the youngest you can say you are on Myspace, I think) and it was last updated the 27th. She is smart though, It's set to private and her pic is not shown. It's from McCleary. Her banner is disturbed, her mood is wet, she was having a water fight. Not sure what to make of it. Pretty sure she has 2 of them. On ehas age listed as 99, McCleary.
    SInce I am only 99% sure, should I post it?

    ETA: the second Myspace was created 5-29, the same daym she writes this: "Lindsey Baum i've been getting a lot of nightmares latley and i have this bad feeling that something bads gonna happen
    Mood: scared at 6:48 AM May 29"

    I'm still not linking because I don't know if I can or not.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

Another odd thing is the parents waiting until 10:50 PM to call LE...that's pretty late for a 10 yr. old to be out roaming around...you would think that the parents would have called the friend's house much earlier and found out that she had left already. Why wait so late?

    Posting this at my own risk, but I know it's her. Says she there for dating, serious relationships, friends, that scares me at her age. Also says that she is very happy that her brother was going to juvie and it was created a 4:04 a.m. That disturbs me. However, it links to her other profile, just look for her German SHephard in her friends. And there are very few other friends, one an Alice that was created the day after DISTURBED (lindsey) last logged in on hers. Says she is 18 and has no picture. Also set to private. I'm pretty sure that's her, somewhere she has Internet access, her little friend on the TWILIGHT FREAK profile, is not someone that I would let my ten year old hang with.

    So, we have a girl that has just had her parents divorce (per news) and if the profiles are hers, has bad influences, a brother in juvie, and improper supervision. She is either the perfect pedo target or she very badly is craving attention and ran away to get it. It doesn't sound good, either way.

    Mods, sorry if I'm out of line with linking. I know she is a minor, but she is a missing minor. And the profile I linked says she is 99.

    10 is so young. I hope she is found safe. I don't think she took off. This may sound strange, but I think at age 10, she would think running away was that she was never coming back, and well I don't think she would go without her dog. 10 years old, my neice will be 9 soon, I'm just thinking.
    I wonder if she is suppose to be home before dark, and stayed later at a friends. In a small town people feel safe.
    I just looked up blocks to see the distance, I live in an area we use miles hehe. Some say a block can be 100 yards to 250, so that would be a 1000 yards the most, which would be a little over half a mile, or .22 miles for 400 yards, which is it?

    Charts don't look good.

    Kidnapping, not runaway. LE should check brothers/relatives/friends/acquaintances of friend she visited. Someone got her on the way home. She is in extreme danger.

    Thanks,

    What the heck does this mean? Did the brother meet her on the walk home? Did she make it home, have a fight with the brother and take off? Or was the brother at the friend's house also? My hinky meter is running at high alert here.

    Thanks Steadfast. I thought I had read the actual addresses somewhere, but now I can't find them. Must have been my imagination.

    It looks as if she had to cross a major street. N.Summit Road/S.3rd Street. In a town of 2,000 I don't imagine it is that busy of a street, probably just a throughfare running across town or something.

    She was walking east. First block on Mommsen Street is houses but 3 blocks out it appears to turn into a wooded area. Not good. Pick her up, put her in car, drive straight east and in 2 minutes the perp would be in a pretty secluded area.

    I wonder if there has been much development in the area since the satellite pictures were taken on google?

    Looks like there are several creeks out that way too. Wonder how big they are?

    What the heck is up w/ that myspace page?
    I have kids that age and that doesn't sound like them at all.
    She sounds way to grown up for a 10 year old.
    Poor thing.....
    I sat there for the longest time
    after you were gone....
    thinking about all things we said.....
    and all the things we didn't say...
    I wonder if you misunderstood,
    cause I'm no good when it comes to talking....
    And I'm sorry,I didn't know the words.......
    to make you stay.

    It's all good, the more times it's posted, the more people see it. That really does worry me, the rest all seems to point to runaway,except for that post about eing scared and leaving her dog.

    these are strong words for a child of 10! Something has this child terrified and on edge. Didn't anyone notice?
