BARRON COUNTY, Wis. -- (WITI) -- A $25,000 reward is now being offered for information in the search for 13-year-old Jayme Closs.
Authorities have been searching for Closs since early Monday, Oct. 15 when a mysterious 911 call led deputies to discover that her parents had been shot dead at the family’s home in northwestern Wisconsin’s Barron County. Since her parents were found dead, Closs hasn’t been located. Sheriff’s officials believe she may be in danger.
On Wednesday, Oct. 24, investigators indicated they have had 1,550 tips come into their tipline (1-855-744-3879). They have checked and closed 1,250 of those tips.
Investigators did make a request -- asking anyone who was driving Highway 8 in Barron County between 12:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 15 to call the tipline. They say you may have critical information to help in the investigation.
Investigators are 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. He didn't have information about the cars' license plates.
