Thirteen-year-old Jayme has been missing since last Monday, when her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found fatally shot at their home.

Investigators said there were signs of forced entry but no sign of Jayme.

Search volunteers said trying to help is the least they can do for the family.

"Just the sacrifice we have to make for one another in a small community, that's what brings everybody together and makes something like this easier on the families and everybody else," volunteer Robert Grinage said.

Investigators say if you see Jayme, call 911. For those who have any information that could help bring Jayme home, call 1-855-744-3879.

Meanwhile, a funeral for Jayme's parents is set for Saturday.

Services will be held at St. Peter's Catholic Church in Cameron, Wisconsin.

A private burial will be held at a later date.
