FBI Taking Over Search for Missing 13-Year-Old Jayme Closs

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald Tuesday said Closs is not a runaway and is not a suspect in her parents' deaths.

Officials said previously that the 911 call, which came in around 1 a.m., prompted a police response to the home, where they found the bodies of James and Denise Closs.

In the news conference, the sheriff also revealed for the first time that evidence shows Jayme was at the home at the time of the slayings, but he did not reveal that evidence beyond mentioning the 911 call.

The FBI and police have already received more than 800 tips on the phone hotline.

Volunteers searched a 20 mile radiance around Jayme's home on Thursday, but did not recover any evidence.

Shortly before 2 p.m., volunteers gathered and started searching in front of the Closs home off Highway 8 after splitting into two groups - everyday citizens who looked for clues while walking west, and members of law enforcement doing the same heading east from the house.

Multiple rounds were fired and the couple was found shot dead. Authorities believed she is in danger. An AMBER Alert for her was issued on Monday afternoon.

Asked whether the murders were targeted or random, he said: "I wish I was closer to that question...."

The left-handed opener had surgery in Dubai on Saturday and would return home on Tuesday, the Pakistan Cricket Board said. Zaman scored almost three quarters of his runs on the offside, hitting eight fours and a six in his 198-ball knock.

"There comes a time in every community when help is needed; we have certainly experienced that need for help", said Wausau Police Chief Ben Bliven in a press release. No gun was found at the scene, he said. "I don't know that answer", Fitzgerald told reporters.

"An entire state has been racked with Jayme's disappearance, and the death of her parents", Wisconsin state Attorney General Brad Schimel said in a statement.

Cops say they have since determined who it belonged to but have so far not identified the owner of the phone. No one on the line spoke back to dispatchers, but deputies traveled to the home where the call was made, 1268 USA 8. That's why those leads are so important'.

Fitzgerald said the information had been tweeted by the Miami police directly, without consulting investigators in Barron.

"Unbelievable, its just something that doesn't seem to happen in our area", said Harold Lehman.

Jayme Closs, a "sweet, quiet" teen with strawberry blond hair and green eyes, vanished Monday, authorities said.

He emphasized that people should use the tip line at 1-855-744-3879 if they have any information regarding the case. We are hopeful to learn more about the Closs family to help bring Jayme home.
