Barron Co. shuts down around-the-clock commander center in search for missing teen

Search for Jayme Closs Enters New Phase

Search for Jayme Closs Enters New Phase

The Barron County Sheriff's Office has fielded more than 2,100 tips, organized two ground searches in the area and made repeated pleas for anyone to provide a breakthrough in finding the girl and whoever killed her parents.

As the amount of tips connected to the disappearance of Wisconsin teenager Jayme Closs have begun to dwindle, the sheriff's office announced Thursday that they are changing how they'll approach the search moving forward. Last week, authorities raised the reward for Jayme's case to $50,000.

Thirteen-year-old Jayme has been missing since Monday, Oct. 15 following the death of her parents, who were found shot dead in their home in Barron. A private burial is scheduled for a later date, according to an obituary posted by Rausch and Steel Funeral Home in Barron. "Denise loved working with her flowers, feeding her birds, she loved angels and helping everyone, any way she could". They have worked with passion, determination and resilience to solve this case and bring Jayme home. "They're about their family, so why?"

The first vehicle is likely a red or orange 2008 to 2014 Dodge Challenger.

The vehicles were seen by security cameras near the Closs home on the night of the incident. The caller didn't communicate with police, but noises heard in the background suggested a disturbance or struggle of some kind.

Richarlison scored twice as Everton overcame Brighton to secure their third win in four Premier League matches. Seven of their 10 games under Silva have gone over 2.5 goals and all of them have had at least two goals.

"If you don't find something the first couple days you get pretty anxious all the time", Frank added.

Nonetheless, the Closs case continues to be the number-one investigation in Barron County, and hunters are being asked to help.

Police said officers arrived at the home in less than 4 minutes after the 911 call ended - but Jayme, along with the gun used in the murders, was gone.

Fitzgerald said he is convinced that "there is something out there" that can lead to find Jayme, given all the digital breadcrumbs in this world from smartphones, the internet and video surveillance.
