Authorities search for two cars

Investigators are looking for two vehicles that they believe were in the area of a Barron home a week ago where a couple was killed and their daughter reported missing.

Denise and James Closs were found dead after someone called 911 from their home in Barron around 1 a.m. on Monday, October 21. When deputies arrived, Jayme Closs was nowhere to be found.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said at a Monday news conference that investigators believe Jayme Closs was home at the time of the killings and that she remains in danger.

One of the vehicles is a 2008 to 2014 Dodge Challenger, red or orange in color.

The second vehicle is black and either a 2006-’10 Ford Edge or a 2004-’10 Acura MDX.

Fitzgerald asked residents to call the tip line if they have seen either vehicle recently in the Barron area.

He also asked residents to look for changes in behavior or routine of people who may drive similar cars.

This evening, a “Gathering of Hope” vigil will take place at Riverview Middle School in Barron.

Tuesday, Fitzgerald is requesting the public’s assistance in conducting an expanded search for evidence that may be related to the incident, according to a news release.

He’s hoping to enlist up to 2,000 volunteer searchers.

Volunteers should report to the staging area at 1883 Highway 25, Barron, also known as The Hungry Hollow Grounds at the intersection of Highway 25 and 19th Avenue no later than 9 a.m.

All volunteers must be registered at the staging area in order to participate in the search. Barron County officials will register all volunteers until 9 a.m., gates will close promptly at that time. Authorities hope the search to be completed by 4 pm.
