Volunteer searchers are working on plans for renewed searches for Lindsey Baum starting in early May. If interested please fill out their volunteer application form, and they will get in touch with updates on search dates.
Officials in the Lindsey Baum missing child case are searching for the owner of this Ridgeline vehicle. The owner may have information on the crime, and is not a suspect.
First you hear the choppers. They don't sound right, they don't sound like the usual medevac to and from the local hospital. You figure out you are hearing at least one circling helicopter and you step outside.
This is loud. They, there is more than one, are flying low. Looks like media. Something is happening.
Have they found Lindsey? This is what you think. It has been days, months, over a year now since she went missing and maybe they found her. Maybe there is a search warrant being served. Maybe an arrest. Or maybe it is something else. But no, this is probably about Lindsey.
Now it is time for info share. Phone calls, web forums checked, information shared. Rumors fly and you work to mine flakes of possible truth from all the mud.
Next time, next chopper, next buzz of electricity flying through the town. You start walking and find yourself across the street as a search warrant is processed, watching the authorities and the media and the townspeople just like you watching everything and each other.
TV news wants to talk with you, with anyone, and hey! you recognize the guy from channel whatever news. But you decline. While watching a guy who is out on his lawn chair watching the scene. Maybe next time you will bring a lawn chair. Not that any of us are relaxed about this. It's just that some of us can't physically stand and watch without quickly becoming exhausted. Which is a great metaphor or something because really.............we can't stand this. We can't handle this. This is so utterly entirely wrong that Lindsey Baum is gone.
The Center for Missing Persons, a nonprofit all volunteer group, has launched a Find Lindsey Baum campaign geared for hunters and other outdoor folks.
