Jayme Closs search, by the numbers

- The search continues for 13-year-old Jayme Closs, missing from her home in Barron, Wisconsin since the early morning hours of Oct. 15 after her parents were shot and killed at the home. Here's a look at some key numbers from the case:

12:30 a.m. - Nextdoor neighbors report hearing two high powered gun shots at the Closs family home. They do not call 911, believing that it might be a nearby property owner concerned about wildlife in their rural county.

12:58 a.m. - Barron County Sheriff’s Office reports dispatch receives a 911 call from inside the Closs family home. We know the call comes from a cell phone. We don’t know whose phone it is, but investigators say they have figured it out. Authorities have said no one on the line speaks directly to dispatch, but dispatchers hear a struggle of some kind. The audio helps investigators determine that yes, Jayme Closs is in the house at the time of her parent’s slayings.

1  - Sources tell Fox 9 the entire 911 call lasts just 45 seconds to one minute.
 
4 - The sheriff says it takes the first responding member of law enforcement less than 4 minutes to get to the Closs house once the 911 call comes to an end. But by the time they arrive on scene, Jayme is gone. And there is no gun found.

13 - Jayme is just 13 years old. She is a local middle school student in Barron who loves sports and dance. She’s been described by those who know her as a quiet, sweet and innocent young kid. She is the only child of James and Denise Closs.

5 - An AMBER Alert lists Jayme as 5 feet tall, weighing 100 pounds with green eyes and blonde or strawberry hair

800 - The number of tips received by law enforcement as of 4 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 18  in the search for Jayme Closs.
