Remains are girl missing since '09

Remains are girl missing since '09”

Scott said he was notified by the Federal Bureau of Investigation lab a few weeks ago that the remains found by hunters past year were identified as Baum.

- Remains found in September 2017 in a remote part of eastern Washington have been identified as Lindsey Baum, a 10-year-old girl who vanished in 2009, the Grays Harbor County sheriff's office announced Thursday. "Now the reality is we need to find a homicide suspect", Scott said.

Officials would not say where in Eastern Washington the remains were found because it is an active and ongoing investigation.

The remains were turned over to local authorities, who released them to the Federal Bureau of Investigation for DNA analysis.

The DNA match to Baum was made this week, according to Scott. Authorities are now focused on finding the individual responsible, he said.

In June of 2009, Lindsey went missing while walking home from a friend's house in McCleary, a small town of 1,500 people west of Olympia. Joshua left ahead of Lindsay after the siblings got into a fight, and Linsdey later walked home alone after her friend's mother declined a request for a sleepover.

McCleary residents crowded into the community center where the sheriff made the announcement Thursday afternoon. "It just took away our innocence", said Tom Hawkins, who has lived in McCleary for 75 years. It wasn't like Lindsey to show up late and she never wandered off.

"And she said 'I don't know, I just have a feeling.' She knew something was coming, but she didn't know what".

Since the disappearance, the sheriff's office has released surveillance video images of people or vehicles seen in McCleary that night, but those efforts never lead to answers.

A flyer about Baum was found in the Shelton home, but there is no known connection between the brothers and the disappearance of Baum.

Scott hopes that anyone who has information on Baum's death will report it.

"There's somebody out there who has information that will bring this case to a complete closure", Scott at the press conference.

"There's someone out there we knows who did this and how this happened", Scott said.

No arrests have been made at this time.
