Missing girl was home when parents were killed: cops

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

- The search continues for 13-year-old Jayme Closs, missing from her home in Barron, Wisconsin since the early morning hours of October 15 after her parents were shot and killed at the home.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said that 46-year-old Denise Closs and 56-year-old James Closs were victims of homicide.

"Her parents died from gunshot wounds, that's why we're ruling this a homicide", Fitzgerald explained.

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.

Fitzgerald said on the "Today" show that Jayme is not a suspect in the case.

More than 400 tips have poured in since Jayme disappeared from her Wisconsin home on Monday. "That's the main point", he said. "Some of it from that 911 call and some of it is still part of the active investigation and we're not able to comment on why we believe that", said Fitzgerald.

At this point, they don't know if it was a targeted attack or if it was a random incident.

"I'll be honest. I'm struggling with this because I don't have some of those answers that I want to give you", Fitzgerald told reporters. "Further, we know in missing child investigations, every second counts".

But when police arrived four minutes later, no gun or suspects were found at the scene and there was no sign of Jayme.

Authorities believe Jayme is in imminent danger.

In particular, the condition can cause weakness in the arms and legs along with loss of muscle tone and problems with reflexes. The condition remains very rare . "Right now, we know that poliovirus is not the cause of these AFM cases", Messonnier said.

A girl resembling Jayme was spotted at a gas station in south Florida on Monday afternoon, according to a tip Miami police say they received.

Authorities at the home of James and Denise Closs, found dead on Monday in Barron, Wisconsin.

Closs was last seen at a family gathering Sunday (Oct. 14) afternoon.

However, the parents' cause of death only compounded the mystery about who did it and what happened to the teenager, who has been described as a middle school cross country runner who wanted to help the poor and loved dance.

She is described as standing 5-feet tall, weighing 100 pounds, with green eyes and blonde hair.

"She's a 13-year-old girl that we believe may have been at the scene when this took place", he said.

Wednesday night, Fitzgerald will host a town hall for Barron County residents only to "have a private dialogue about how our community is doing".

A tip line for information on Jayme's disappearance has been set up at 1-855-744-3879.

"Often, someone in the community will have knowledge of a crime and may not realize it", he said.
