UPDATE: Amber Alert issued for missing teen after parents found dead

in Breaking News/Sirens

BARRON, Wis. — Police have issued a statewide Amber Alert for Jayme Closs, a missing 13-year-old girl whose parents were found dead in their Barron, Wis. home early Monday.

Deputies went to the home in Barron after dispatchers received a 911 call from an unknown person at around 1 a.m. Monday, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said. He said they found the bodies of the missing girl’s parents: 56-year-old James Closs and his wife, 46-year-old Denise Closs.

Fitzgerald also said there had been gunshots, but he stopped short of saying that’s how the couple died.

Investigators don’t have any leads or suspects, but they have enlisted the help of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the FBI, which has agents who specialize in missing children cases, the sheriff said. Jayme is not considered a suspect in her parents’ deaths, Fitzgerald said.

Deputies searched the area around the family’s home with drones and infrared equipment but found no clues as to her whereabouts.

Jayme is described as white, 5-feet tall, 100 pounds with strawberry blond hair and green eyes.

Anyone with information about her whereabouts or anyone that has contact with her is asked to contact the tipline at 1-855-744-3879.
