Sheriff: Lindsey Baum's body found in Eastern Washington

Human remains discovered prior collapse in eastern Washington have been identified as those of Lindsey Baum, " a 10-year-old girl who went missing from '09, The Grays Harbor County Sheriff's Office declared Thursday. He said they had maintained hope she would someday be found alive. Investigators are now scouring the area where the remains were found in the hopes of finding a clue as to who killed the girl.

Most recently, authorities in Grays Harbor County investigated a possible link between Baum's disappearance and three elderly Seattle brothers who were each charged a year ago with two counts of second-degree possession of depictions of minors engaged in sexual conduct.

Sheriff Rick Scott told KIRO 7 Thursday there is a "significant development in the investigation" but declined to say more until a 1:30 p.m. news conference. "While we are experiencing profound grief and mourning the loss of "OUR ANGEL" Lindsey at this time, we respectfully ask for your understanding of our need for privacy".

Last August, Scott said his office wanted to investigate any possible links between the disappearance and the case of three elderly brothers arrested in Seattle for allegedly possessing images of child sex abuse and other materials detectives say indicate the men spent the majority of their lives sexually abusing children.

Numerous searches took place in the days after she vanished, and bloodhounds were brought in, but she was never found. "Now the reality is we need to find a homicide suspect", Scott said.

"At this point, because of the location and working with the local jurisdiction, we really need to keep the area under wraps so we can adequately search it", Scott said.

Our thoughts are with Lindsey's family at this hard time.

'They were understandably devastated.

On June 26, 2013, four years after Baum disappeared, an age-progressed photo done by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children was released showing what the girl would look like at age 13.

Scott urged anyone with information to come forward. Baum's mother, Melissa Baum, helped by contributing photos of herself and Lindsey's father when they were roughly the same age.

However, no link between the brothers and Baum was ever established.

There is a $35,000 reward to find Baum.
