Those volunteers have been asked to gather at the Hungry Hollow Grounds at 9am, but police will not say if they are hoping to find the missing teen or evidence that could provide any clues as to her whereabouts.

Jayme has been placed at the top of the FBI's Missing list, CBS Minnesota reports.

The sheriff's office is continuing to ask anyone with information related to the case to call the tip line at 1-855-744-3879 or email jaymetips@co.barron.wi.us with any photos or videos of possible sightings. They do not call 911, believing that it might be a nearby property owner concerned about wildlife in their rural county.

Saturday marked day six of the search for Closs.

A city of 3,400, Barron is about 75 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department has released the call log for the night/morning of the double-homicide incident in Barron, Wisconsin. The dispatcher called the cellphone back but could not leave a voicemail.

A responding officer found "the door has been kicked in". Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has not confirmed who made the call.

Adams, 24, was following Carruth in a separate vehicle after a movie when Watkins and Kennedy pulled up beside her. Adams had previously said she would be there when Carruth got out of prison, but she was not present Monday.

"We are hopeful to learn more about the Closs family to help bring Jayme home", Fitzgerald said in a statement. No gun was found at the scene, he said.

"Is it a random attack or a targeted attack? I don't know that answer", Fitzgerald told reporters. "That's why those leads are so important". Pinging the phone shows it is located at the Closs home at 1268 13 ½ Avenue, Barron, WI.

The sheriff's office said it has thoroughly investigating at least 1,000 of those tips so far. He could not be reached for comment Friday. Jayme, who isn't a suspect in the killings, was missing.

On HLN's "Crime & Justice" Wednesday night, Fitzgerald told host Ashleigh Banfield that additional agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, are involved.

"They are the experts in breaking down 911 tapes, looking at our phones and taking care of all evidence in that manner", he said. He said when the deputies arrived at the house, James was found dead at the door.

"It was just, "bang" and 'bang", Smrekar said.

Jayme is described as 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes.
