Volunteers searching for evidence related to Jayme Closs case

For days after Jayme mysteriously vanished - and her parents were found dead in their family home in northern Wisconsin - the sheriff had remained tight-lipped on how James and Denise Closs died, saying an autopsy needed to be conducted.

When officers responded minutes after a 911 call to the home in Barron, about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis, they found no suspicious vehicles, says CBS Minnesota. She was last seen at a family gathering over the weekend.

Office of School Safety (OSS) is working with Wausau Police Department and the Wisconsin Safe and Healthy Schools Center to deploy trained therapists, school resources officers, and comfort dogs to Barron School District, in the aftermath of the disappearance of 13 year-old Jayme Closs.

But Barron County, Wisconsin, Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald, whose department is leading the investigation, told reporters Tuesday afternoon that Wisconsin investigators and the FBI checked out the video and that it couldn't be considered "credible information" because it didn't come from his team. Meanwhile, authorities say they've gotten more than 200 tips following an Amber Alert that was issued Monday afternoon. But the Federal Bureau of Investigation is pleading for more help in finding the girl, who is the subject of an Amber Alert.

Closs' parents were shot and their deaths have been ruled homicides, Fitzgerald said Wednesday.

Authorities said they believe Jayme is in danger, which is a fact that is devastating for many.

She also warned fans, "Kindness and encouragement only for a bit!" "Just remember- negative comments can hurt anybody's feelings". Unfortunately, as her white blood cell count had not improved following her first hospital check-in, she had to be readmitted.


When deputies arrived on the scene, they discovered James and Denise Closs dead from gunshot wounds. Fitzgerald said. "I don't know that answer; that is why those leads are so important". "When a child like Jayme is missing, we ask you to observe this behavior and report it to us".

She's described as standing 5-feet tall, weighing 100 pounds, with green eyes and blonde hair. "Does he want to find this girl, or does he just want to make a public display of his dislike for the press?"

During a recent school assignment, Jayme was asked what she would do with $1 million, Tremblay said.

"Our thoughts are with the Closs family and the entire Barron community", said a statement from Jennie-O Turkey Store officials.

He emphasized that people should use the tip line at 1-855-744-3879 if they have any information regarding the case.
