State Patrol plane helps search McCleary for missing girl

July 1, 2009 

A Washington State Patrol airplane was used Tuesday in the search for 10-year-old Lindsey Baum, who disappeared Friday night, said Grays Harbor County Undersheriff Rick Scott.

Baum disappeared after she embarked alone on a half-mile walk from a friend’s home on Maple Street to her home on Mommsen Road.

Scott said investigators don’t have concrete evidence that she was abducted.

About 30 ground searchers and 30 law enforcement officials were involved in the search Tuesday, he said.

Anyone with information about Baum’s disappearance is asked to call the Grays Harbor County 9-1-1 center at 360-533-8765.
