Two months after the 13-year-old Jayme Closs disappeared from her Wisconsin home, after her parents are shot and killed, family members marked with the day and Saturday with a plea for anyone with information to come forward.

A group that consisted of members of the community and Closs’ grandfather released balloons in the vicinity of a 16-foot tree of hope decorated with messages such as “pray for Jayme” which was lit last week in Barron, Wis.

“I want nothing more than to get my granddaughter back to me and her family, where she belongs,” Robert Naiberg, Jayme’s grandfather, told those gathered for the ceremony.

Naiberg said it was a terrible two months since the death of his daughter and son-in-law and agonizing not to know what happened to his granddaughter.

Members of the community and the family of Jayme Closs hold a balloon release and making a plea for information two months after the teenager was missing.

“We need answers, but no one seems to have an answer, so we don’t know more than anyone else does. That is what is difficult,” he said.

The authorities have combed through hundreds of tips since Oct. 15, where Denise and James Closs were murdered in their home in Barron, Wis. The police responded to the home after receiving a cryptic 911 call where dispatchers spoke with no one, but heard distant voices and a loud commotion on the other side.

Four minutes later, the couple’s bodies were and Jayme was nowhere to be seen.


Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told FOX9 on Saturday, there are no new updates on the case. Fitzgerald has previously said that he believes that Jayme is alive and well despite the amount of time that has passed since she was reported missing.

A $50,000 reward is offered to anyone with information that leads to Jayme.

Jennifer Halvorson, who lives in the area, told FOX9 that emotions are still heavy in the small town as people remain hopeful that Jayme is at home in life.

“We are certainly hopeful they will come back and we want to support everything what we can to get her back,” she said. “If something happens to a person here in the neighborhood, it happens to everyone.”
