    Family Says They Are Unfairly Targeted In McCleary Search

    The owner of the property told KIRO 7 reporter Richard Thompson that he’s contacted a lawyer about suing the police and the media, saying they had no right to put the family through the search.

    Baum’s mother said she is disappointed that nothing was found relating to her daughter, who has been missing for three months.

    "I was obviously really hoping something would come from the search," said Melissa Baum.

    Law enforcement sources told KIRO 7 that among the evidence collected during the search were condoms and pornographic magazines. A car was also seized and will undergo further forensic testing.

    The homeowner of the property said his family has been unfairly targeted in the search, "they didn't find anything here because we didn't do anything to that little girl."

    Relatives confirm a man at the house was the focus of the investigation and search. One of his relatives said, "the only reason they were doing this search is, he gave a wrong answer to a question by a detective on the telephone."

    Lindsey's mother said she understands the family's frustration, but her daughter's life is at stake.

    "If they end up being completely innocent, I'm sorry. But at the same time, my daughter is missing," she said.

    State apologizes for letter sent to missing girl's mom
    September 29, 2009
    <snipped>
    As she marked three months since her daughter vanished, Melissa Baum of McCleary got a disturbing letter from the state.

    She was informed her ex-husband would no longer be required to pay child support for eleven year old Lindsey, because her child hadn't been home for three months.

    "I still have to maintain a house for her, I still have to maintain a life for her. This is not a normal case. She is a child that has been abducted, she's missing." Baum said on Tuesday.

    State child support spokesman Adolpho Capenstany says the letter sent to Melissa Baum was a form letter that routinely goes out after 90-days of a child being out of the home and he admits it should not have been sent in this case. "It's not a procedure that we would instigate in the manner it was, and it's also insensitive to a very difficult situation regarding a missing child." Capenstany said.

    Person of interest in girl's disappearance
    September 29, 2009
    Updated 23 minutes ago
    <snipped>
    Investigators now call the man whose home was searched over the weekend in the Lindsay Baum case a person of interest.

    Steve Shumate with the Grays Harbor Sheriff's Office says they are not calling the man a suspect, "There were a number of things, I think in general terms, it was just some inconsistencies with respect to what he had said."

    Shumate says evidence gathered at his home still needs to be analyzed. The man was interviewed by police and then released.

    The man has now threatened suit against law enforcement for being wrongfully targeted.

    McCleary man receiving death threats in Baum case

    Frustration is boiling over in this small Western Washington town where a weekend search for Lindsay Baum failed to turn up a break in the case. And a local family says their son, who has received death threats, has unfairly become the town's scapegoat.

    KOMO News has learned the young man was working at the Bee Hive Retirement Center at the time of the 11-year-old girl's disappearance. The girl was last seen in front of the center.

    The man's family members and his next-door neighbor say he was at home when the girl vanished.

    "That's terrible. That's how rumors start. That's how small towns are, though," said McCleary resident Mike Stoney. "You can get into a big area and you probably wouldn't hear anything like you're hearing now. Small towns are terrible for rumors."

    Feeding the rumor mill are blog sites where local residents have engaged in non-stop chatter and speculations about Lindsay Baum's disappearance.

    "I'm sure there's a small percentage in this community that are frustrated, that want this thing taken care of now and stop all of the melee, so to speak. But I think for a lot of us in the area here, too, we're just holding steadfast and hoping for the best," said Steve Saylor, another McCleary resident.

    The sheriff's office will unseal the search warrants later this week, at which time the contents found during last week's search will be made public.


    Investigators comb a site near McCleary on Friday after search warrants were issued in connection with the disappearance of Lindsey Baum, 11.
