Police are organizing a team of 100 volunteers to scour through fields, woods and other areas to search for the missing child who vanished after her parents were murdered, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
Federal agents are scouring the rural area of Barron County, Wisconsin to find the perpetrator responsible for murdering Jayme Closs’ parents and possibly holding the 13-year-old captive.
“We believe Jayme was in the home at the time of the homicides and we believe she’s still in danger,” Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told Radar Wednesday, noting he has a “100 percent expectation that she’s alive.”
The case quickly wound up on the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s radar, and now a source close to the investigation says they deployed special agents and plan to send more within 48 hours.
“This wasn’t random,” a source close to the investigation revealed to Radar. “Someone had the specific intent to take Jayme by any means necessary, murdering her parents in the process.”
The insider continued, “For the perpetrator, turn yourself in now. Every second you are out there you are only making this worse for yourself, and worse for this child. This is now a double homicide and abduction case. Local, state and federal authorities will not give up until we solve this case.
“The perpetrator went in, pulled out a gun and shot both parents – killing them, execution style. The person then kidnapped their daughter.”
Now, police need the public’s assistance to help locate and bring Jayme home.
“One hundred volunteers are needed and should report to the intersection of State Highway 8 and 16th Street at 2:00 p.m.,” police wrote on Facebook just under an hour ago, adding that volunteers should wear proper footwear for uneven terrain.
“We are requesting the public’s assistance in conducting a routine search for articles of evidentiary value that may be related to the incident.”
The source added, “Whoever you are, turn yourself in now. Bring her home. End this horror story.”
According to the source, the FBI believes the child might be in another state. Authorities issued an Amber Alert in Miami, Florida for a black Ford Explorer bearing Wisconsin license plate No. 160WER. However, it was learned that the information was not credible.
The source noted that authorities aren’t ruling anything or anyone out – but wouldn’t clarify any further.
