Jayme Closs: FBI expands search nationwide for missing Wisconsin girl

Share

The FBI has expanded the search nationwide for missing Wisconsin teenager Jayme Closs, as 100 volunteers joined local search parties to scour the area around Barron for the 13-year-old.

Wisconsin DNR warden Supervisor Russell Fell selected 100 volunteers to searched the ditches along highway 8 near the home where 13-year-old Jayme Closs lived with her parents James, and Denise in Barron, Wisconsin on October 18, 2018.

Note: While there is no indication that 13-year-old Jayme Closs is in OR, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is pushing this information out across the country with the thought that she could be anywhere at this time.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department also called for 100 volunteers to help search for clues that could possibly lead to Jayme's whereabouts as they announced the hundreds of tips received since Monday.

"We are running a 24/7 operation, a 24/7 command post".

Jayme's grandfather, 72-year-old Robert Naiberg, said nothing seemed amiss at the family gathering attended by Jayme and her mother Sunday afternoon. She is 5 feet tall and weighs about 100 pounds.

The sheriff has so far declined to elaborate as to why investigators believe Jayme is not a runaway, saying that disclosing more information would compromise their investigation.

Fitzgerald has said that investigators do not know whether the killings were a random act or whether the Closs family or their home was targeted.

Denise Closs' husband, James Closs, had answered the door.

Jayme's father was working at the time of the party.

Dispatch logs show multiple shots were fired in the home of a northwestern Wisconsin girl who vanished after her parents were found dead inside the house.

"Our thoughts are with the Closs family and the entire Barron community", said a statement from Jennie-O Turkey Store officials. First responders were at the Closs house just four minutes after that 911 call was made. Anyone with information can call the tip line at 1-855-744-3879.

Correction: A prior version of this story incorrectly spelled the missing girl's last name.
