Lindsey was last seen on June 26, 2009. She reportedly went to a friend’s house for a possible sleepover — then headed back home alone after the other girl’s mother said no.
According to The Seattle Times, more than two dozen possible persons of interest have been connected to her case.
Scott did not discuss a possible cause of death or motive.
'They were understandably devastated. They had prayed that we would find her alive and bring her home. That was not the outcome that the family wanted to hear,' Scott said of Lindsey's families reaction to her finding.
The family has asked for privacy as they grieve but gave their thanks for the public’s 'continued support,' Scott said.
'I was sad that it was ending like this,' Scott said on discovering the body belonged to Lindsey, 'but I was glad that we were able to bring some element of closure to what had happened to her.'
Our thoughts are with Lindsey's family at this difficult time.
