Police are searching for a missing 13-year-old girl whose parents were found dead early Monday inside a home on the outskirts of Barron, Wisconsin, PEOPLE confirms.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters on Monday that daughter Jayme Closs — who has since vanished — is not considered a suspect in the slayings.

Officers responding to a 911 call for help arrived at the home just after 1 a.m. Inside, they found the two bodies, whose names have not been released.

Fitzgerald said that gunshots were involved but that he was not prepared to give an official cause of death.

He said the search for Jayme will continue until she’s found. The teen is considered “missing and endangered.”

“At this time, we have no leads and no idea what happened at that home,” Fitzgerald said.

Detectives were interviewing Jayme’s friends and had an officer stationed at her school in case she showed up for class, Fitzgerald said.

Jayme stands 5 feet tall and weighs 100 lbs. She has green eyes and blonde or strawberry blonde hair.

Anyone with any information concerning her whereabouts is urged to call the Barron County Sheriff’s Department at 715-537-3106.
