Barron County seeks 2000 volunteers for search Tuesday

Investigators are also searching for two cars - a red or orange Dodge Challenger and a black Ford Edge or black Acura MDX - that may have been near the Closs family's home on the night of the attack, Fitzgerald said.

Surveillance footage helped the Barron County Sheriff's Office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation determine the makes and models of two cars "seen in the area" of the Closs home at the time of the fatal shootings.

The search for a 13-year-old girl whose parents were killed in the family home a week ago is to expand with as many as 2000 volunteers expected to comb the area for the child feared abducted.

A search for an "endangered" missing girl, whose parents were found shot dead in their home in the U.S. state of Wisconsin, has expanded nationwide as police struggle to find clues to her whereabouts. Investigators are uncertain of the make and model of the second vehicle.

Investigators have said they haven't recovered a weapon and that it's likely Jayme witnessed her parents' murders.

"Also for the community, this is a good time now that we have some vehicles of interest to look for changes of behavior or routine of people". He did not release license plate numbers or say how the vehicles might be tied to the case.

It's been six days since 13-year-old Jayme Closs disappeared, following the murders of her parents in their Barron County home Monday. Fitzgerald declined to release more details on that when asked by a reporter whether James Closs had opened the door to law enforcement or someone else, stressing that the record only encompasses a responding officer's initial account from the scene. A previous search involving 100 volunteers along Highway 8 failed to turn up anything of note.

He said that since she went missing last week, officials have received 1,300 tips in relation to her disappearance; 1,100 of which have been closed.

The sheriff said a helicopter was performing a mapping of the search grid.

"I think hope is probably the most important thing", she said.

The sheriff's office says it is utilizing every resource available, and have conducted hundreds of interviews, multiple searches, and are using the technical and forensic expertise of state and federal resources to locate the person or persons who committed the offense and to locate Jayme. They indicated they don't consider her to be a suspect and say a 911 call came in, but no one was on the other end.

The department posted a message on its Facebook page Monday asking for 2,000 volunteers to assist in the next ground search, which was scheduled to begin at 9 a.m. on Tuesday. They were identified as James and Denise Closs.
