  • A 13-year old Wisconsin girl is missing after her parents were found dead early Monday morning the Barron County Sheriff's Department said.
The missing juvenile Jayme Closs is 5-feet tall 100 pounds with green eyes and blonde or strawberry hair

Closs, a missing teenage girl, could be in danger after two adults were found dead at a home in Barron, Wis., on October 15, 2018.

Authorities with the Wisconsin Department of Justice Office of School Safety are also planning on sending a team of counselors to respond to the school by the end of the week. Barron County is in northwest Wisconsin.

"Today, with assistance from community volunteers, we are conducting a routine search for articles of evidentiary value that may be related to Jayme's disappearance", Barron County officials said.

Two days have passed since Jayme Closs' parents were found dead and the 13-year-old girl vanished.

Anyone with information about Jayme Closs is asked to call the tip line at 1-855-744-3879.

He said no one was communicating to the dispatcher on the 911 call but "some kind of disturbance could be heard".

Police issued an Amber Alert for Jayme Closs on Monday afternoon after discovering the bodies of James and Denise Closs, who had suffered gunshot wounds. The couple's 13-year-old daughter wasn't home at the time and was later declared missing. Authorities are not saying who they believe placed the call. It came from a cell phone.

"One-hundred volunteers are needed", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said a statement that directed people to meet at an intersection in the city on Thursday afternoon.

Fitzgerald said he believes the girl, who is not considered a suspect in the case based on evidence found at the home, is in danger.

Investigators have not found the weapon used to kill the Closses. Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are following up on the tip, but the sheriff has since deemed it "not credible".

The FBI has joined the search and utilized the bureau's Child Abduction Rapid Deployment Team.

At that time they were still searching and asking for tips regarding the case. Meanwhile, deputies searched the area around the family's home with drones and infrared equipment and talked to Jayme's friends and middle school classmates, hoping to develop some leads. "That's the main point", he said. I will not interrupt this investigation for anybody to have any information that's not necessary, except for the essential people behind me and their staff. "Every tip is important", Fitzgerald said.

FBI investigators have searched the home twice and deployed drones and infrared equipment in the surrounding area. She was last seen at a family gathering over the weekend.
