Wednesday marks the third day of the search for a missing 13-year-old from Barron County, Wisconsin.

Authorities have been searching for Jayme Closs since early Monday when a 911 call led to the discovery of her parents' bodies. They were identified as 46-year-old Denise Closs and 56-year-old James Closs.


Investigators said they have received more than 200 tips related to the case. Authorities said a tip placing the girl's whereabouts in Miami is not credible.

Jayme is described as being 5 feet tall and 100 pounds, with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes.
