"We've brought Lindsey home," Grays Harbor County Sheriff Rick Scott stated during a press conference on Thursday, May 10. "Sadly, she was not recovered as we and her family had hoped." Multiple-state and federal agencies from Washington, Idaho, and Montana are now searching the area where she was found hoping to find clues as to what happened. Her disappearance is being investigated as kidnapping and homicide.
Lindsey went missing from McCleary in 2009 after she left a friends house and was last known to be walking a few blocks to her home. That was the last time she was seen or heard from until her remains were found. Two hunters in Eastern Washington found human remains while hunting in September 2017, but because there was no crime associated with them at the time they weren't immediately sent to be tested for DNA by the FBI.
