The Barron County Sheriff said the opening weekend of gun deer hunting season in Wisconsin failed to turn up any tips from hunters in the woods near where 13-year-old Jayme Closs disappeared last month.


Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald had asked hunters to be on the lookout for any possible evidence. However, Monday morning, he said nothing had turned up so far.

Wisconsin's nine-day gun deer hunting season began on Saturday. More than 400,000 licenses have been sold statewide for the season. 

The teenager has been missing since her parents James and Denise Closs were found fatally shot in their home on Oct. 15.

Authorities believe Jayme was home at the time.
