Circumstance: Lindsey Baum was walking down Maple street towards her home around 9:15 pm when she went missing. Numerous searches conducted and child has never been located or seen since. Officials believe Lindsey was kidnapped by someone she knew. Henry Schmidt, an expert with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children told news media that the majority of kidnapped children are taken by someone they know. Initial searches focused on the neighborhood that Lindsey was last seen, because most abducted children are found within a quarter mile of where they were taken.
