One week after 13-year-old Jayme Closs was abducted from her rural Wisconsin home, authorities are asking for 2,000 volunteers to help search for evidence in the case. He said he didn't have information on the cars' license plates.
The investigation began when someone called 911 shortly before 1 a.m. Monday.
Jayme Closs has been added to the top of the FBI's Missing Persons list. The girl was nowhere to be found. Investigators say the girl is in danger and is not suspected in her parents' deaths.
Her grandfather, Robert Naiberg, 72, said his daughter Denise and Jayme attended a party the weekend before the murders, and that his son-in-law, James Closs, was working and couldn't make it. A previous search involving 100 volunteers along Highway 8 failed to turn up anything of note.
More than 1,200 tips have come since Jayme's disappearance. A spokesperson for the FBI's Charlotte Division told WLOS that digital billboards across the country will soon display a photo of the missing girl.
Police discovered the bodies of the couple when they arrived at the residence, but there were no signs of Jayme, prompting them to issue an AMBER Alert for the missing teenager.
The Barron County Sheriff's Department released dispatch logs on Friday that indicated responding deputies found multiple rounds in the home and the front door kicked in.
The dispatcher "could hear a lot of yelling" during the 911 call.
Fitzgerald said Sunday that this office has received over 1,200 tips from the public regarding Jayme's disappearance.
Volunteers and law enforcement combed the sides of U.S. 8 - the road where the Closs' home is located - on Thursday, looking for evidence.
This call for help comes just hours before Jayme's classmates will come together for a Gathering of Hope in honor of the teen at the Barron High School Football Stadium. There will be music, resources for families, and spiritual and emotional care.
