Tips about missing McCleary girl sought at festival

July 10, 2009 

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, according to The Daily World of Aberdeen.

Grays Harbor Undersheriff Rick Scott said the command center will pull out of town to make room for the festival, but extra officers and deputies in uniform will be present to talk to the public.

“We just want to be here and do what we can to talk to folks,” Scott said.

Baum disappeared June 26 from a McCleary street blocks from her home. She had been walking back from a friend’s house. Investigators have yet to find any evidence explaining her disappearance.
