    BARRON COUNT (WLUK) -- Investigators say they increased the reward for information leading to a missing teen's location.

    The Barron County Sheriff's Department says with the help of Jennie-O Turkey Store, the reward to bring 13-year-old Jayme Closs home is up to $50,000. It was previously set at $25,000.

    Jayme went missing Oct. 15 after authorities found her parents, James and Denise Closs, shot to death inside their home. Investigators believe Jayme inside the home at the time of the incident and was abducted.

    Ground searches of the area near the home turned up nothing.

    Deputies are seeking information on two vehicles that may have been near the family home at the time of the incident -- a red or orange Dodge Challenger and a black Ford Edge or black Acura MDX.

    Officials also want to hear from anyone who was on Highway 8 early on Oct. 15 to see if they can offer any information.

    According to the couple's online obituary, James and Denise worked at Jennie-O Turkey for 27 years.
