Lindsey Baum could have graduated this year, now 7 years missing

Lindsey Baum OldSunday marked the 7th year since went missing.

Lindsey would be celebrating her 18th birthday on July 7, and would have likely graduated this month.

June 26, 2009 marked the day that Lindsey walked home from a friend’s house in McCleary, never to be seen again.

Lindsey’s mother, Melissa Baum, has spoken with KXRO multiple times since her daughter went missing. When the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children worked with family members and local authorities to create an aged photograph to show what Lindsey may look like today, she stated that her hope was that the photo would lead to calls about what happened that night.

The Grays Harbor County Sheriff’s office, FBI, State Patrol Missing Persons Unit and the Department of Corrections continue to work on the case, although no definitive evidence has been discovered.

A $35,000 reward for information that leads to the recovery of Lindsey and penalties to those responsible is available.

If you have any information that may help find Lindsey, contact Detective Keith Petersen at 1-360-964-1731 or
