A 13-year-old girl, missing after her parents were found dead in their western Wisconsin home on Monday, may have been spotted in Miami, Florida, according to police.
Jayme Closs "may have been seen" in the area of NW 11th Street and NW 27th Avenue on Monday afternoon, Miami police tweeted early Tuesday.
"If it was her, she was in a black Ford Explorer with a possible WI place of I60WER," police continued, asking anyone with information to call 911 immediately.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert for Jayme Monday afternoon, saying they believed her to be in danger after her parents were found dead in their home in Barron, Wisconsin.
Deputies went to the home after dispatchers received a 911 call from an unknown person at around 1 a.m. Monday, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said. He said they found the bodies of Jayme's parents, though he didn't release their names. He also said there had been gunshots, but he stopped short of saying that's how the couple died.
Investigators don't have any leads or suspects, but they have enlisted the help of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and the FBI, which has agents who specialize in missing children cases, the sheriff said. He said Jayme is not considered a suspect in her parents' deaths.
Deputies searched the area around the family's home, roughly 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis, with drones and infrared equipment, but they didn't find any clues as to her whereabouts. Fitzgerald said investigators are frustrated they haven't developed any leads and asked for the public's help with any information about what could have happened to the girl.
"At the end of the end of the day, I want a 13-year-old here safe and sound. That's our goal. That's our only goal right now," Fitzgerald said at a news briefing.
Officers also were at Jayme's middle school talking with her friends and acquaintances, hoping to develop some leads, officials said.
Jayme is described as 5-feet tall and weighing 100 pounds, with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes. Anyone with information was asked to contact the Barron County Sheriff's Office at (855) 744-3879.
