Investigators in the Jayme Closs disappearance went up in a helicopter Thursday to look for possible changes to an area that was searched last month.
Jayme Closs, 13, has been missing since Oct. 15. Investigators believe she was abducted after her parents, James and Denise, were shot and killed in their Barron home.
In October, thousands of volunteers searched miles of terrain looking for possible clues or evidence. On Thursday, a helicopter search took place to look for changes on the ground where volunteers searched. Officials say the search is not based on new tips.
An Amber Alert remains active for Jayme. She's also featured on the FBI's Kidnappings and Missing Person's website.
There's a $50,000 reward for information that leads directly to the location of Jayme Closs.
Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has identified two vehicles of interest that were captured on home and business surveillance video near the Closs home around the time of the incident.
Hunters were asked to be on the lookout for possible clues that would lead to Jayme Closs as authorities continue their search a month after the 13-year-old Wisconsin girl vanished after her parents were shot and killed inside their home.
Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said the search for the teenage girl remains top priority for the department and officials nationwide.
“As hunting season opens on Sat, we ask that hunters report anything suspicious such as clothing, weapons or anything you think it just not right on your property,” Fitzgerald said in a Facebook post. “Also remind everyone to have a safe hunt and good luck to all the hunters.”
Detectives have pursued more than 2,300 leads, watched dozens of surveillance videos and spent countless hours searching for Jayme, trying to figure out what happened to her ever since her parents were fatally shot in their home near Barron, a rural community about 80 miles (130 kilometers) northeast of Minneapolis.
Investigators remain as perplexed as they were on Oct. 15, when sheriff's deputies responding to a 911 call at 1 a.m. found the bodies of James and Denise Closs. The door to their home had been kicked in and Jayme was nowhere to be seen, even though deputies were at the house within four minutes of the call.
Authorities believe she was abducted and say she's been ruled out as a suspect in her parents' deaths.
"It's a headscratcher. We just don't know what took place. We're trying to figure that out, and it's frustrating," said Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald.
The Christmas tree on display at the Barron County courthouse honors Jayme Closs, who has been missing more than six weeks.
Jayme, 15, has been missing since Oct. 15, when deputies discovered her parents James and Denise Closs, had been shot to death in their home. A mysterious 911 call brought deputies to the home, but Jayme was nowhere to be found. Large-scale searches in the area have garnered few clues.
Investigators believe Jayme was abducted. They still don't know whether she was the target of the attack at her home near Barron.
Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald posted about the tree online Tuesday, thanking the Clerk of Court employees.
"If you Believe and have Hope, we will bring Jayme home," Fitzgerald wrote. "Thanks for the smile and the continued support from everyone on this case."
