    With little to go on, investigators said dozens of people have been taken off the search. Detectives are now waiting for a tip that will send them in the right direction.

    At the height of the search, 75 members of the search and rescue team, as well as up to 35 officers and countless volunteers were scouring Grays Harbor County for the girl, who disappeared while walking home last month.

    Without solid tips, the county can't afford to keep the investigation moving at the same pace. The search and rescue team has been dismissed, and the number of officers have been reduced to 12.

    Scott, who spoke with the Baum family on Wednesday, said family members are convinced their little girl will be brought home safely.

    Scott Baum is expected to fly out next week.

    Officers will mix with revellers this weekend

    With the town of McCleary shaken by the recent disappearance of 11-year-old Lindsey Baum, authorities hope to take advantage of this weekend’s Bear Festival to spread information and solicit new tips.

    Scott said the extra officers will be patrolling to reassure residents and offer a visible presence to anyone who might want to come forward with new information.

    About a dozen investigators, split between the Sheriff’s Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, will continue pursuing specific leads.

    “We’ve got a few things that were called in overnight,” Scott said.

    Authorities will check and re-search abandoned houses and farms outside of town today, he said. Volunteers already searched some sites, but officers want to make a more thorough sweep of nearby properties and spread out to some that are farther afield.

    Scott said the investigation command office is set to move back to a more permanent home at the Sheriff’s Office in Montesano. A “core group” of investigators will remain on the case as long as necessary.

    With the search nearing two weeks, the young girl remains on the minds of many people on the streets of McCleary and stretching out across the nation. Cable news programs continue to follow the story and new Web sites post new information on her disappearance daily.

    LEADS SOUGHT IN LINDSEY BAUM INVESTIGATION
    July 9, 2009
    <snipped>
    What should have been a day of celebration passed with more worry and waiting for the Baum family of McCleary. Lindsey Baum should have had an 11th birthday party on Tuesday, but she still remains missing; a disappearance that has torn the East County community apart for nearly two weeks. However searchers say they are still hopeful that some information may be uncovered that will lead to the discovery of Lindsey's whereabouts.

    Lindsey Baum is Still Missing: A Tale of Two 11-Year Old Girls
    Redirecting Focus: Lindsey Baum's 11th Birthday Passed While Much of the World was Focused on Michael Jackson's 11-Year-Old Daughter
    July 08, 2009
    <snipped>
    While the entire world seemed to be focused on the memorial service of Michael Jackson and an 11-year-old girl's farewell to her father, a missing 11-year-old girl, Lindsey Baum, spent her birthday, her 11th birthday, somewhere other than
    with her father. She has been missing since the day after Michael Jackson died. Somewhere between a friend's house and her own, a trip she's made several times before in the past, Lindsey Baum disappeared.

    Lindsey Baum has been missing since the day after Michael Jackson died. And while a little 11-year-old girl named Paris cried in Los Angeles, missing her father, family and friends cried in McCleary, missing another little 11-year-old girl, Lindsey.

    And the difference in the two cannot be more staggering. Everyone in the world who cares to knows exactly where Paris Jackson is. But no one knows where Lindsey Baum is.

    And that is something the world should also focus on...

    One could not help but think that if just a small portion of the people who directed their attention to the Michael Jackson memorial service, perhaps just the people in Washington, would just turn their attention to finding Lindsey Baum, she would be found within a matter of minutes and returned to her family. And not only Lindsey, but Haleigh Cummings, Brittanee Drexel, and hundreds of other missing children as well.

    Lindsey Baum is Missing: Washington 10-Year-Old Still Not Found
    Police Believe Lindsey Baum was Taken by Someone She Knew
    <snipped>
    McCleary Police and other authorities now believe that Lindsey Baum was taken or went off with someone she knew. A timeline has been developed and a witness saw the little girl walking about halfway to her destination at around 9:15. Surveillance footage taken from a gas station she would have passed later on the way home does not show her at all. That close to her home, officials believe that she went with someone she knew willingly, otherwise sounds and signs of a struggle would have alerted people in the densely housed area.

    Lindsey's mother, Melissa, has passed a polygraph test, as has Scott Williams, the father of the child where Lindsey Baum was visiting and one of the last people to see her.

    STILL NO SIGN OF MISSING McCLEARY GIRL
    July 09, 2009
    <snipped>
    It has now been 14 days since 10-year old Lindsey Baum went missing in her home town of McCleary while waking home from a friend’s house and still no sign of the girl.

    Lindsey’s 11th birthday came and went Tuesday with searchers seemingly no closer to finder her than they were on June 26th when she vanished.

    With very little to go on investigators say dozens of people have been taken off the search and authorites say they are waiting for that one tip or tips that will jump start the probe in the right direction.

    Grays Harbor County undersheriff Rick Scott said his officers were trying to keep Lindsey’s pictures and her face in the minds of as many people as possible, hoping that someone will see her or know something or it will jog their memory or provide the information they desperately need.

    Law enforcement officials in Grays Harbor County say it appears “likely” that missing 10-year-old Lindsey Baum was abducted, perhaps by someone she knew.

    Birthday Girl Remains Missing in McCleary on Tuesday, Search Efforts Continue Today
    July 8, 2009 at 10:20 am
    <snipped>
    Scott said today that video footage taken from a nearby Shell station which investigators had hoped would have captured Lindsey yielded no stand-out leads, some leads are still being investigated from the video.

    Grays Harbor County Sheriff Mike Whelan says that investigators have received a lot of tips, and that so far the investigation has yielded no primary suspects. "We've been sending teams of detectives out to follow up on those tips" "as far as suspects are concerned, we don't have anyone that we can say is the suspect"

    Police are following up on several leads in the case, Scott tells that the Forensic Investigation on Lindsey's home computer has turned up little more, and that they have expanded the computer level search to other computers that Lindsey may have used to access her internet profiles, including the local public library's computer.

    Chief George Crumb of the McCleary Police Department said last weekend that 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."
