The FBI says it has expanded its search nationwide for a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl missing since her parents were found dead at home on Monday morning. The authorities say Jayme Closs was in the house when her parents – 46-year-old Denise and 56-year-old James Closs – were killed.
The girl, excluded as suspected on the first day, was gone when deputies arrived. Relatives to Jayme told CBS News, the door of the house was filed.
When officers responded a few minutes after a 91
1 call to the Barron home, about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis, they found no suspicious vehicles, said CBS Minnesota.
The FBI said Thursday that “out of an abundance of caution” it sent a digital Missing Person poster to local media partners across the country for viewing.
More than 100 local and state FBI agents have worked on the case, and officials say hundreds of tips have entered the community and people around the country, reports the station.
One hundred volunteers have joined the search for Jayme, the authorities said Thursday after Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald asked people to throw in.
He said Wednesday investigators believe that she lives but in danger and he urged the public to continue to call in tips.
The Sheriff’s Office was published on Facebook Thursday afternoon so far “nothing of evidence has been restored.”
