Missing Wisconsin teen, 13, is in danger, not a runaway, police say

Authorities say they have no credible information to support the reported sighting of missing Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs in Florida; Matt Finn reports on the search.

Two days after her parents' mysterious death, Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs remained "endangered" -- but her whereabouts continued to prove elusive for the investigators combing the country for the 13-year-old.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said in a Tuesday news conference that Jayme is believed to be in danger and emphasized she is not a suspect in the death of her parents, James and Denise Closs. He also dismissed the idea Jayme had run away from her home in Barron, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

"I'm telling you: Jayme is missing and endangered," Fitzgerald said at a news conference where police released several additional photos of the girl.

The teen has been considered missing since Barron County police responded to a 911 call just before 1 a.m. Monday and arrived to find her parents dead inside their home. Fitzgerald said gunshots had been fired at the residence, but would not further comment on the couple’s cause of death.
