UPDATE: Names Released of Deceased Parents of Missing Teenage Girl

13-Year-Old Girl Missing In Wisconsin After Parents Found Dead

There was only background noise on the other end of the line.

A Wisconsin couple is dead and their daughter is missing.

Fitzgerald stated that gunshots are involved in the case, but he's not ready to rule how Closs' parents died.

An amber alert has been issued for a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who went missing after her parents were found dead, authorities said on October 15. He said they are following up on every lead but if it's something they believe to be credible, they will let the public know.

Sheriff Fitzgerald said investigators were frustrated they had not turned up any leads and asked for the public's help with any information about what could have happened to the girl.

BARRON COUNTY- "We don't know who took her, we just know we have a violent crime scene and we have a missing 13-year-old-girl", said Chris Fitzgerald, Barron County Sheriff in a news conference. He didn't release their names.

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.

Neighbors told our sister station they heard gunshots about 30 minutes before the 911 call but didn't think much of it, assuming someone was shooting at an animal. Fitzgerald says the Federal Bureau of Investigation technicians are specialized in missing children.

A girl resembling a missing 13-year-old from Wisconsin was believed to be seen at a Miami gas station with two men, police say.

Investigators say it started with a 911 call at 1 a.m. from the Closs home.

Fitzgerald says Jayme was last seen at a family gathering Sunday afternoon, but he provided no details. No information has been released on their relationship to Jayme.

Fitzgerald explained, "This is a odd one but we do believe Jamie needs to be located and we do feel she's in danger to some degree and that's our focus now, that's where our efforts and being produced". No suspects have been identified.

Authorities say a missing teenage girl could be in danger after two adults were found dead in a home in western Wisconsin.

A tipster reported seeing a person "fitting the description of endangered juvenile Jayme Closs" between 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Monday in a black Ford Explorer with a possible Wisconsin plate of I60WER, the Miami Police Department said Tuesday.
