At a press conference on Wednesday, the FBI announced their next step in their search for missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs. Ten days after her disappearance, law enforcement doesn't appear any closer to finding Closs.
The FBI is offering a $25,000 reward for anyone with information that leads to the location of Jayme. Law enforcement discovered Jayme was missing after her parents were murdered.
FBI Special Agent in Charge R. Justin Tolomeo announced the cash reward at a news conference held with local authorities Wednesday afternoon. He encouraged people to call the tip line at 1-855-744-3879 if they have any information.
As many as 2,000 volunteers from in and around the Closs family's hometown of Barron, Wisconsin, as well as far away as the Minneapolis area, joined in a search on Tuesday. The police say they as of yet don't have anything significant from that search.
They wouldn't comment on whether they had a suspect. However, they sad they still believe Jayme to be missing and endangered.
Relatives plan to hold a funeral for James and Denise Closs at 1 p.m. Saturday at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Cameron, which is next to Barron. The funeral will be preceded by an 11 a.m. visitation.
Please pray for Jayme! We hope this reward will lead to information that will help her be returned to her family.
