The KlaasKids Foundation is organizing a search in McCleary for Lindsey Baum, who has been missing for two months.
Lindsey, 11, last was seen in McCleary after 9 p.m. June 26, after she left a friend’s home on Maple Street by herself to walk about a half-mile to her home on Mommsen Road.
Despite a massive search, police have been unable to find Lindsey or say definitively whether she was abducted.
KlaasKids Foundation representatives will hold a community meeting at 7 p.m. Thursday in McCleary at the McCleary Community Center.
