Lindsey Baum turns 15

Sunday marked the 15th birthday of , still missing after 4 years.

In June, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, along with the Grays Harbor Sheriff’s Office, released an age progression photograph of Lindsey. This photo was created to show what she may look like today.

Melissa Baum, Lindsey’s mother, told KXRO that she hopes this image, along with the already active investigation, sheds some light to the location of the McCleary teen. She said, “I don’t need a flood of calls. I just need that one call, that one call that brings her home.”

A team of investigators continue to work on finding Lindsey. Grays Harbor Sheriff says that no suspects in the case have been ruled out, but no definitive evidence has been discovered yet. His hope is that this new photograph could bring new information forward from someone in McCleary at the time of her disappearance, or who has seen her since.

A $35,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of Lindsey remains available.

If you have any information that may help find Lindsey, please call the Grays Harbor County Information Tip line at (866) 915-8299, or email:
