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

Closs vanished from her Barron County home on October 15. Her parents were found shot dead.

Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said fewer tips have come in recently. He said the case remains the number one priority for law enforcement, and they need tips to keep coming in.

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.
