(BARRON, WIS) – a 13-year-old’s parents were found dead in their western Wisconsin home.
Police went to the home after a 911 call from an unknown person was made around 1:00 am on Monday.
Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said they found the bodies of Jayme Closs’ parents deceased. Gunshots were also evident, but the Sheriff stopped short of saying that is what caused the death.
Police say they don’t have any suspects or leads at the moment, but they have the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children as well as the FBI assisting, which have agents who specialize in missing children’s cases, the Sheriff said.
The child is not considered a suspect in the death of both her parents.
A police search surrounding the home, which utilized drones and infrared equipment did not reveal any clues as to where the missing child could be.
“At the end of the end of the day, I want a 13-year-old here safe and sound. That’s our goal. That’s our only goal right now,” Fitzgerald said during a press conference.
Police attended the girl’s school and were speaking with her acquaintances and friends in hopes of digging up some leads.
Jayme is described as 5-foot tall, 100 pounds with strawberry blond hair and green eyes.
Barron is about 130 kilometres east of Minneapolis.
There is no vehicle description or suspects at this current moment.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact the Barron County Sheriff’s Office at 855-744-3879
