FROM THE BARRON COUNTY SHERIFF’S DEPARTMENT:
You can be part of the search for 13 year old Jayme Closs.
TOMORROW (Tuesday, October 23rd) officials are conducting an expanded routine search for articles of evidentiary value that may be related to the incident.
Two thousand volunteers are needed and should report to the staging area at 1883 Hwy 25, Barron WI, also known as The Hungry Hollow Grounds at the intersection of Hwy 25 and 19 th Ave no later than 9:00 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 9:00 a.m., gates will close promptly at that time.
We hope to be completed by 4pm. Volunteers must be 18 years or older and present a picture form of identification. Volunteers must be able to walk on uneven terrain. Proper footwear (boots required) and cold weather clothing are required and may become dirty or stained.
Once we have 2,000 able-bodied volunteers, we will need to turn additional people away. Please continue to monitor Barron County Sheriff’s Office Facebook homepage and the FBI Milwaukee #FindJayme twitter postings, should we need additional volunteers in the future, we will make those requests via social media.
Please do not call, 2,000 volunteers is our maximum need at this time.
