A Wisconsin sheriff said that officials are searching for two vehicles in the case of missing 13-year-old girl Jayme Closs.

On Oct. 22, a week after Jayme was abducted from her rural home, officials said they had identified a red or orange 2000 to 2014 Dodge Challenger, and a 2006 to 2010 black Ford Edge or a 2004 to 2010 black Acura MDX as being of interest to the case, according to the sheriff’s office.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said at a news conference that officials obtained the new information by looking at surveillance footage from businesses or homes, ABC News reported.

Officials are now asking for 2,000 volunteers to help search for the girl or any evidence on Oct 23. The office said that people must be able to walk on uneven terrain.

Jayme’s parents, Denise and James Closs, were found shot to death in their home in the early hours of Oct. 15. Police had responded to an unusual 911 call where no one spoke. Reports said that a 911 dispatcher heard yelling.

A responding officer also found that “the door has been kicked in,” according to the latest details. Meanwhile, the family dog was there when deputies arrived, and it was taken to a relative’s house.

“ADVISED THE DOOR HAS BEEN KICKED IN. ADVISED THAT THE MALE WHO IS DOWN HAD ANSWERED THE DOOR. UNKNOWN IF ANYONE IS MISSING,” read the 911 dispatch note, Fox News reported. It added: “325 ADVISED ONE MALE DOWN, MULTIPLE ROUNDS SPENT. REQUESTED THAT ADMIN BE NOTIFIED.”

No gun was recovered. Police haven’t revealed a motive or a suspect.

“We believe Jayme was in the home at the time of the homicides and we believe she’s still in danger,” Fitzgerald said, according to CNN.

The log doesn’t say who made the 911 call, and sheriff’s officials don’t know who was yelling.

“Jayme remains missing and endangered and has been added to the top of the FBI’s Missing Persons list, and is currently on digital billboards nationwide,” the sheriff’s department said on Oct. 21.

An Amber Alert was issued for Jayme, and those with information are asked to call a 24-hour tip line at 855-744-3879.
