MADISON (AP) — The Latest on the search for a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who vanished after her parents were killed (all times local):

Dispatch logs show multiple shots were fired in the home of a northwestern Wisconsin girl who vanished after her parents were found dead inside the house.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department released dispatch logs Friday that indicate responding deputies found multiple rounds in the home and the door kicked in.

The logs also indicate the initial 911 call that summoned deputies to the home early Monday came from a cellphone belonging to the girl's mother.

Deputies discovered Jayme Closs' parents fatally shot in their home in rural Barron. The 13-year-old girl was nowhere to be found. Investigators say she's in danger and isn't a suspect in her parents' deaths.

Authorities say a ground search has turned up nothing useful as investigators look for a 13-year-old girl who went missing after her parents were found dead in Wisconsin.

Deputies found Jayme Closs' parents shot to death in the family's home in rural Barron early Monday. The girl was nowhere to be found. Investigators say the girl is in danger and is not suspected in her parents' deaths.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says the ground search won't resume Friday. His office coordinated a ground search Thursday using 100 volunteers to comb fields and ditches, but he says the search turned up nothing of evidentiary value.

Fitzgerald says his office hasn't received any tips that would lead deputies to continue the ground search.

His office also asked that anyone who'd recently spent time with family or had a misunderstanding with them, or knew someone who did, to call authorities.
