The Barron County Sheriff is asking the public for help in the search for 13-year-old Jayme Closs, who went missing after her parents were shot to death in their Barron, Wisconsin home. 

The sheriff said they need 100 people to help search the intersection of State Highway 8 and 16th Street at 2 p.m. in Barron. Barron County officials will be there to greet volunteers. 

Closs has been ruled out as a suspect in the double homicide and the sheriff says they believe she is in danger. 

Volunteers need photo identification and need to be able to walk over uneven terrain. 

Please wear proper footwear and bring your own water. 

Once 100 people are available, the sheriff said they will turn everyone else away.
