Two aunts of Jayme Closs appeared at a news conference Wednesday updating the public on the search for the missing 13-year old Wisconsin girl.

"Jayme, not a moment goes by when we aren't thinking of you, and praying for you," said Jennifer Smith, the sister of Jayme Closs' mother Denise Closs, who was murdered last week along with her husband. "Your family and friends miss you so much."

Another one of Jayme's aunts, Susie Allard, held Jayme's dog Molly during the news conference.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald reported that a massive search effort with some two-thousand volunteers failed to produce any evidence into the disappearance of Jayme, or the murder of her parents.

Fitzgerald did confirm that they are receiving new tips based on the release of descriptions of two vehicles seen in the area of the Closs home at the time of the murders.

"Since we released (the descriptions) the last up-tick in tips have been due to the vehicles and locations and sightings."

Fitzgerald says a new team of investigators returned to the Closs home Wednesday to look for any possible evidence that may have been missed.

The sheriff was asked if they've been able to determine if the person or persons who committed the murders and took Jayme were known to her.

"As soon as we know that, you'll be the first to know," Fitzgerald said.

A $25,000 reward is being offered in the case.
