Body of Missing Grays Harbor Woman Found This Morningmore

The body of a missing Grays Harbor woman was found earlier this morning.
Official statement from the Lindsey Baum Search Center core team:
Regarding the most recent "search" for Lindsey. This effort was done by a group, separate from Law enforcement and Lindsey's group, but we want to assure you that there was nothing found, regardless of what you may have read. This search was really an awareness effort (flyer handout) organized by an unassociated volunteer group that was directed at a new area and location. If ever there is any true progress made in Lindsey's case we will be the first to keep you up to date with that information on the official Find Lindsey Baum Facebook page or Lindsey's website.
To our knowledge, the most recent Law Enforcement search that took place in McCleary has still not been wrapped up as far as testing of any items removed. To suggest that progress has been made anywhere outside of Law Enforcements efforts at this point is simply misleading information. We are just as excited as the next to see Lindsey's information go public, we do not however want it to happen if it must be done under misleading circumstances.
Walla Walla County Sheriff John A. Turner is advising the public to use caution when making charitable contributions after an organization called Search and Rescue Charities contacted some Walla Walla County citizens claiming to support local Search and Rescue teams.
During the solicitation, which has included phone and mail, the group claims that it does support the Walla Walla County Search and Rescue, but Search and Rescue can find no records of ever being contacted, much less being supported by this group. State level Search and Rescue officials never have heard of this charity, according to the news release.
Legitimate and well-established charitable groups easily are reached by telephone or email and have local representatives who can answer questions regarding funding and expenditures. They most likely will have local or regional offices that are open to the public and have complete transparency, the release said.Walla Walla sheriff emphasizes caution, urges to use local nonprofits
Psychic Detectives are the vanguard of a second wave of predators that also includes tabloid journalists, cheesy defense lawyers and photo-op politicians. They use tabloid newspapers and talk shows to boast about their accomplishments and predict success. They materialize whenever children are kidnapped and circle the cases like vultures on a fresh carcass.
Now that it’s dark during the morning and evening commutes for most drivers, it’s even more important to pay extra attention to avoid collisions with animals. Here are a few tips to help your stay safe while you’re driving:
Be cautious in early morning and evening hours, the most active time for wildlife.
Pay attention to animal crossing signs. They’re there because collisions have occurred at those locations in the past.
If you see an animal in the road DO NOT swerve to avoid it. If you swerve, you have a greater chance of leaving the roadway and striking a fixed object or another vehicle.
