    Direct Quotes from LE ONLY

    I don't actually have any yet for the thread, but I'll go back and get some.

    Let's try to get all direct quotes and nothing but direct quotes from LE. We might want to include indirect quotes after phrases such as "Sherrif X went on to say . . ." But we should probably keep in mind that sometimes the reporter isn't a very good paraphraser.

    Don't forget to include links, so we don't get further confused!

    Lindsey J. Baum was last seen at 9:15 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.
    Lindsey was going to walk the four blocks to her home on Mommsen Road, which is roughly a 10-minute walk. But something happened in that short distance - Lindsey never arrived home.

    "She hasn't been seen or heard from since," Pimentel said.
    Pimentel said Lindsey has never been a runaway. "We don't suspect that at this time," he said.
    "We don't know what happened to her yet. All we know is she's missing, and we're taking every effort we can to try and locate her," he added.
    Police say it appears Lindsey walked at least part of the way with home with friends, who didn't see anything unusual.

    Lindsey Baum, who was wearing a hooded sweatshirt that was either gray or blue, jeans and black sneakers, was walking from her friend’s house on Maple Street to her own home on Mommsen Road, a four-block distance, and was last seen at about 9:15 p.m., said Sgt. Ed Patrick with the Grays Harbor Sheriffs Office.

    Baum’s mother called the McCleary Police Department at 10:50 p.m., having waited in case her daughter had run into friends or otherwise dawdled, Patrick said.

    "The worst case scenario-she's the victim of foul play or some type of predator behavior," said Grays Harbor Undersheriff Rick Scott

    Pimentel said it's strange that nobody saw anything unusual.
    "Such a small community like this - you can't do much in a town this size without everybody knowing about it," he said. "Everybody in town knows she's unaccounted for."

    Chief George Crumb of the McCleary Police Department said friends and family are assisting the search, and that while his department hopes Baum just ran off on her own, “she’s been gone far too long.”
    In the five years Crumb has been with McCleary there has not been an abduction. No Amber Alert was initiated because no one had seen anyone take her. Lindsey Baum was simply reported as a missing child.
    “It did not meet any of the criteria for an Amber Alert,” Crumb said.
    McCleary Police set up the initial search, but called in the Sheriffs Office at 4 a.m., Patrick said. Thurston County sheriffs deputies are also assisting.
    “We are keeping our fingers crossed,” Crumb said.

    "It's really important that individual realizes that they may be the one person who saw something, that to them was totally worthless, but to us is very important," said Scott.(Undersheriff)
    Police have ruled out all family members as suspects.

    reported as said by Undersheriff Rick Scott & conflicting with other reports.

    bold by me
    Lindsey’s older brother had left the Maple Street residence before his sister after the two had a dispute over the bike Lindsey had borrowed from him that day – a common occurrence between frequently squabbling siblings, Scott added.

    "At their requests polygraphs were given to them. They passed those polygraphs. We're comfortable with the information they've shared with us and comfortable with the timeline they've explained," said Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott

    Scott told KXRO that several tips have been received and investigators would like to talk to anyone who may have seen anything suspicious in McCleary, a tiny town of only about 1,500, between the hours of 8:30 p.m. and 10 p.m. Friday when Lindsey failed to return home

    -------------
    Authorities canvassed the city Saturday and Sunday but didn't find any clues, according to Scott.

    He said there is no evidence of foul play, but his agency is "beginning to investigate with that possibility in mind."

    McCleary Police Chief George Crumb told The Aberdeen Daily World that while his department hoped Lindsey ran off, "she's been gone far too long."

    No lot unsearched, no carport unsearched, no tarp 'unlooked' under," said Undersheriff Rick Scott


    "We have not found evidence, we have not found circumstances, witnesses or information that speaks specifically as to what happened to Lindsey," said Scott.

    There was nothing that indicated any preplanned intention for her to run away or go anywhere," said Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott.


    Scott said his department is not yet ready to conclude that Lindsey was abducted because there is no evidence to indicate that's what occurred.

    Police said the key to finding the 10-year-old girl may lie with anyone who saw the girl as she walked home in the small town of McCleary

    Scott said that from the beginning, investigators have explored the possibility of family members or friends being involved. Baum’s mother and the stepfather of the young girl Baum had been visiting just before she disappeared have both taken voluntary polygraph tests to aid the investigation.


    Scott said authorities have run into several dead ends with almost no signs of the 4-foot-9, brown-haired girl, who was last spotted wearing a blue pullover shirt and blue jeans.

    “I don’t know anything more than I knew Saturday afternoon,” he said, “but I’m not willing to admit that I know anything less.”

    Scott said bloodhounds traced the route Lindsey took early on from the friend’s house to her own home, but didn’t find any scent. And in places where Lindsey once played — parks and by the creek — Lindsey’s scent has been vanishing.

    The loss of scent could be a combination of factors — the heat on the sidewalk could have dissipated it for instance, he said.

    Scott said a second person came forward Tuesday with a confirmed sighting of Baum from Friday night in the same area along Maple Street near Fifth Street

    They spent hours talking to businesses that were open, couriers who might have been in town, and stopping cars passing by, but didn’t come up with much new.

    “No one who was here last Friday remembered anything,” said Undersheriff Rick Scott. “We received a few suggestions about where to look or who we might talk to who might have been in the area, but we haven’t received any suggestions so original that they haven’t already been (looked at) in some way or form. The community has been helpful with its support, but even they are running out of ideas.”

    Lindsey's Route

    The girl’s route home would have taken her from her friend’s house in the 600 block of Maple Street, along the residential street with no sidewalks.

    She would have walked down Maple and would have had to cross 3rd Street, which is a main road in the town and has a crosswalk. At that point she would have had a short walk through a a commercial area, including a nearby bus station and a gas station. She would have had to cross the larger street, then back onto a residential street without a sidewalk and head down to her house at the 300 block of Mommsen Street, a dead-end residential neighborhood within view of the police station.

    But a minute or two before she crossed 3rd Street, she disappeared. A neighbor spotted her about two-thirds of the way home, Scott said.
