Missing girl was home when parents were killed: cops

Investigators said they do not believe Jayme is a suspect in her parents' deaths.

Two days have passed since Jayme Closs' parents were found dead and the 13-year-old girl vanished.

Anyone who notices anything suspicious or sees Closs is asked to call 911 or the Barron County Sheriff's Office at 715-537-3106.

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

During a media briefing on Tuesday morning, Fitzgerald said that he can't reveal why authorities believe Closs is in danger because it could compromise the investigation. "There was no gun found on the scene", Fitzgerald said.

Her grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told The Associated Press on Tuesday that nothing seemed amiss at the gathering, which was to celebrate the birthday of a grandson who is cousins with Jayme.

"She was quiet as always. Jayme wrote down on one of her assignments in response to the question, 'What would you do if you were given a million dollars?' She said, 'Feed the hungry and give the rest to the poor, '" Tremblay said.

Teams have used drones and infrared in their search for Jayme Closs. He described his daughter as "thoughtful person" who brought "a little gift for everybody" at the party. He said they responded to the home within four minutes - but within that time, Jayme was gone. He also dismissed the idea Jayme had run away from her home in Barron, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis. He said Miami police did not check with Wisconsin authorities before tweeting information about the tip and reminded the public that updates would come from the sheriff's department.

"Every second counts in this case", he added.

The missing teenager has been described as being approximately 5ft (1.5m) tall and 100lb (45kg) with green eyes and strawberry blonde hair.

The FBI and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children are helping in the search.

While 82 percent of the Amber Alerts issued previous year identified a vehicle and 50 percent had specific license plate numbers, according to U.S. Department of Justice statistics, Closs' case offers neither of those clues.

Fitzgerald urged the public to come forward with tips. I will not interrupt this investigation for anybody to have any information that's not necessary, except for the essential people behind me and their staff.

If you know someone whose behavior has changed or there are changes in their routine, pay attention to that, the sheriff said.
