    Areas near McCleary searched for missing girl
    Missing Girl: No big findings reported
    Published September 28, 2009
    <snipped>
    The search on the properties in question intensified Saturday, bumping up the number of civilian search-and-rescue experts and law enforcement personnel from 30 on Friday to 50 on Saturday. Search dogs also were brought in.

    “So far, we have not found that smoking gun; we have not found anything that would jump out at us. But without forensic analysis done at the lab, we can’t really say whether what we’ve found will help our cause or not,” he said.

    Pimentel said he couldn’t reveal what led detectives to two isolated locations along Foreman Road, just outside McCleary. Deputies were restricting access to the road and checking licenses to make sure only local residents could get through a road block. The restrictions were in place through Sunday.

    Detectives combed an abandoned home and an adjoining shed or barn from morning until night Friday. The property is on about 11 acres of land, Pimentel said. On Saturday, Pimentel said, detectives brought in search dogs and search-and-rescue experts to help search the surrounding brush, trees and grasslands.

    At a second site, detectives set up a mobile command unit from the King County Sheriff’s Office near dozens of junk cars and debris at a second residence along Foreman Road. The property owners were told to leave the area.

    “This is just one tip we’ve received that we decided to follow up on out of thousands, literally, thousands of tips,” Pimentel said. “The people we talked to yesterday were among the hundreds and hundreds of people we’ve talked to, as well.”.

    Haleigh Cummings Case Break Coincides with Lindsey Baum Case Break
    September 27, 2009
    <snipped>
    On opposite sides of the country, police investigating the cases of little girls who seem to have vanished without a trace received information that could break the floundering investigations. Haleigh Cummings, 5, disappeared from Satsuma, Florida February 10. In McCleary, Washington, Lindsey Baum,10, left a friend's house and never made it home the night of June 26.

    Could the followup on tips received in both cases lead to one or the other of the little girls being found soon? Will the imbalance of publicity affect the outcome of the two investigations?


    Search Warrants Served in Lindsey Baum Case
    After 9 hours of searching at one location, police told KING 5 News that there were no major developments. Resumption of the search on Saturday yielded boxes of potential evidence gathered pursuant to the warrants.

    The police have not disclosed any specifics as to what prompted the search but the search warrants themselves will become public documents 5 days after their execution and may give the public additional insight into the investigation.

    KOMO News reported one of the sites searched was a dilapidated house and another a house with junk cars in the yard, whose residents were asked to leave when the warrant was served. KOMO News learned from Sgt. Steve Shumate of the Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office that investigators were gathering evidence that include fibers and hairs, looking for any clue about what happened to Lindsey.

    Shumate said in an interview with KIRO televison that police were looking for the clothing that Lindsey was wearing when she disappeared or any other trace of her. Police are interviewing the family who lives on the property.


    Disparate Media Coverage of the Baum and Cummings Cases
    The Lindsey Baum case, by contrast with the Haleigh Cummings case, has garnered much less media attention and few public clues as to what may have happened to the McCleary, Washington pre-teen.

    The Baum case is not as sensational as the Cummings case, in part because the Baum family and associates appear to be mainstream. The Cummings family and associates have earned their milieu the nickname Dysfunction Junction, with arrests for illegal drug use, battery, and forgery, allegations of child abuse, underage sex, and myriad other less than stellar behaviors.

    The apparent abduction of Lindsey Baum is of no less importance than the abduction of Haleigh Cummings, yet the absence of tawdry entertainment value associated with its reporting seems to minimize the news coverage.

    While these most recent criminal charges against a relative of a key figure in the Haleigh Cummings investigation garnered wide publicity, the vigil marking the 3 month point in Lindsey Baum's disappearance passed largely unnoticed.

    No new clues after weekend search warrants
    Investigators “didn’t find anything we’re excited about”
    Monday, September 28, 2009 11:15 AM PDT
    <snipped>
    Investigators cleared roadblocks from a rural McCleary area street and allowed a family back into its home over the weekend after finding no new evidence explaining the disappearance of 11-year-old Lindsey Baum.

    Grays Harbor Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Pimentel said the potentially credible information that launched two search warrants along Foreman Road and new interviews Friday has not produced any new direction for investigators.

    Pimentel noted the recent attention did bring in a new wave of tips on Lindsey’s case as the investigators marked three months since her June 26 disappearance. The new tips will be reviewed along with thousands of others that have come into the Sheriff’s Office.

    “We’ve still got hundreds of tips,” he said. “There’s plenty of work to be done.”

    Pimentel said investigators collected several samples of potential forensic evidence Friday while combing two residences and nearby property outside McCleary. It could be months before forensic tests tell investigators if any of the evidence is helpful.

    The residents of a home undergoing a search were allowed to return late Saturday, he said. Sheriff’s deputies and investigators with the FBI and the McCleary Police Department are regrouping and moving forward again with the investigation.

    No arrests in new search for McCleary girl
    September 28, 2009
    <snipped>
    A new search for evidence in Grays Harbor is over with no arrest in the case of a missing 11-year-old girl.

    Dozens of deputies and detectives wrapped up a weekend search of cluttered property south of McCleary, but won't say what, if anything, they removed as possible evidence.

    Grays Harbor County Chief Criminal Deputy Dave Pimentel says they questioned one person in particular, but have not made an arrest.

    Sgt. Steve Shumate told KIRO Radio, on Friday, that if they don't get the information they're hoping for, then "we move on. We go to the next tip until we ultimately find her."
