As deer hunting season began in Wisconsin this weekend, those taking to the woods in the northwest of the state have been asked to assist in the search for Jayme Closs.

It's now been more than a month since the 13 year old went missing after her parents were killed at their home in Barron County, and authorities are enlisting thousands of hunters to help find clues as to her whereabouts.

"Look at the property, look for anything suspicious or out of place, anything that's been moved,” Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told KSTP on Friday.

"Clothing, firearms, especially Jayme's size clothing is what we're really looking for, something that would show that she may have gone in the woods."

The sheriff said he's looking for newer evidence that has been left within the past couple of weeks.

In spite of an exhaustive search operation in Barron County, as well as more than 2,000 leads being investigated by local and federal law enforcement, there are still few real clues as to what happened to Jayme after her parents' deaths.

"While 30 days has past, there is still hope in this department on this case and the community support and prayers that we have been given continues to fuel our drive and determination to bring Jayme home," Fitzgerald wrote on Friday.

"Thank you all for your support and prayers and again there is a tip out there that will solve this case and bring Jayme home."
