    Searches & Search Team information

    This thread is for searches and search teams - and the latest on who is searching and where.

    I'd like to start this thread by saying that I am BUGGED by the fact the dogs aren't picking up ANY scent. NG mentioned it on her show again tonight.

    - Bloodhounds failed to pick up any scent of the child along the route.
    - A wide-ranging search was launched early Saturday in the town and the surrounding forests. The town was criss-crossed three times, but not a trace of Lindsey has been found. Even bloodhounds failed to pick up her scent.

    July 01, 2009
    - A Washington State Patrol airplane was used Tuesday in the search for 10-year-old Lindsey Baum
    - searchers will also head down private logging roads that have been locked and forest lands located within 3 to 5 miles of McCleary. The search has also expanded to parts of Thurston and Mason counties.
    - A video camera that can detect heat couldn’t be used because the ground was emanating too much heat. Unfortunately, Scott said the camera can’t be used today because of the same conditions.
    - Searchers on horseback looked for signs of Lindsey in McCleary and on nearby trails in areas they could reach.
    - A dive team was called in to search through swamps and creeks, and a National Guard helicopter shot aerial photos that were being analyzed
    - Two Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Officials worked endlessly Wednesday sorting through one-third of McCleary’s garbage, hoping to find a clue that could lead to Lindsey.
    “We're looking for any signs of evidence of the missing girl. We're looking for clothing Lindsey may have been wearing," said Chief Deputy Dave Pimentel. “And of course the un-talkable."

    July 2, 2009
    - Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott told Q13 FOX News that crews have thoroughly searched the area around McCleary
    - more than a dozen agents working on the case in rotating shifts, including agents with their child abduction response team. They're talking to neighbors, relatives and anyone who was in the area when Lindsey disappeared
    - Behavioral profilers have also offered input on any potential kidnappers.
    - Scott said the search would have to continue to expand beyond the city limits, targeting logging roads or other remote areas farther afield. But he vowed it would go on as long as necessary.
    (bolded by me)

    - Mason County Sheriff's Deputies have been asked to assist in the investigation of the disappearance of 10-year-old Lindsey J. Baum of McCleary.
    - Mason County Detectives have also assisted the investigation by verifying addresses and providing information to the investigation about registered sex offenders in west Mason County.

    Keep in mind, this is an incomplete timeline as I had to cut away for a while. I can certainly continue if it helps. I'm sure there are several other items of significance that I did not find, but that you recall hearing of. Please feel free to edit I just kinda found it pretty interesting when I began to chronicle the search efforts - thereby keeping a record of sorts of where they looked and what help was reached out for when.

    Then again, I could stop obsessing and bake the fam a cake or something.

    Na ~
