New details have emerged from the night Jayme Closs disappeared and her parents died, including that the door to the Closs home had been kicked in.

Dispatch logs from the Barron County Sheriff's Department have revealed information about the moment deputies were called to the Closs home in rural Barron, Wisconsin, where they found the bodies of Denise and James Closs, and 13-year-old Jayme missing.

The Closses had died from gunshot wounds and no gun was recovered from the scene. Jayme has now been missing for 6 days and is believed to be in danger.

Among the new details revealed in the dispatch logs:

– The door to the Closs home had been "kicked in."

– The 911 call was "pinged" to the Closs home, with the call coming from a phone belonging to Denise Closs.

– The dispatcher could hear "a lot of yelling" during the 911 call. It does not however reveal who made the call or what was said.

– The call came in at 12:53 a.m. The dispatcher tried to return the call on several occasions but got no answer.

– The family dog was found in the house by deputies, and has since been taken to a relative's home.

More than 1,000 tips have been sent in to the Barron County Sheriff's Office since Jayme went missing, while scores of volunteers scoured a 13-mile area between Barron and Turtle Lake, to the west of the Closs home.

A friend of the Closs family has told People that Jayme and Denise Closs were "inseparable.'

"A lot of parents will drop [their] kids off at activities when they get to be a little older," she said. "But Denise was always there. If Jayme went to the roller rink with friends, Denise was there."
