Barron County (WQOW) – More than 2,100 tips have been received into the disappearance of Barron teen Jayme Closs.

Fitzgerald said they have built a great team of investigators to work the case and have spent the past 18 days around the clock going over information from social media, phone records, family, friends, coworkers and every other tip that has come in.

If you have information, you are asked to call the tip line at 1-855-744-3879.
