SEATTLE – A newly released video of a McCleary, Wash. girl who has been missing nearly a year shows her happy and laughing as she plays with another child.
The Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office released the video of 11-year-old Lindsey Baum on Thursday. Undersheriff Rick Scott says the tape was provided by another family whose child is seen with Lindsey in the video.
Baum disappeared June 26, 2009.
The video was shot in Nov. 2008. Scott says the children are play-acting a skit that they created. The boy is chasing Baum with a toy sword.
While the video was recorded about seven months before her disappearance, Scott says it allows the public to hear Baum's voice and see her mannerisms.
The sheriff's office also announced Thursday that will conduct a new search in and around McCleary this Saturday and Sunday.
