A man is facing charges after officials said he burglarized the home of missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs this weekend.

According to a criminal complaint filed by the Barron County Sheriff’s Office, Kyle T. Jaenke-Annis, 32, Cameron, was arrested on suspicion of burglary at the Closs home in Barron Saturday. 

Jaenke-Annis took underwear and other clothing belonging to Jayme from the home. He was discovered at the Closs home Saturday, the morning of James and Denise Closs’s funerals. Jaenke-Annis told investigators he found the house unlocked and walked in. 

According to a release from the department, Jaenke-Annis has been cleared of any involvement in the girl’s disappearance but was charged in Barron County Court Monday with burglary and bail jumping.

There have been no other updates concerning the case. Early on Oct. 15, a 911 call came in from the Closs home in Barron, and upon the arrival of law enforcement, Jayme’s parents, James and Denise, were found dead. Since then, the 13-year-old girl has been missing.

Officials said Monday 1,875 of 2,000+ tips have been closed as the search continues for the 13-year-old girl. “There is a tip out there that will break this case, keep them coming in,” Sheriff Fitzgerald said. 

A $50,000 reward has been offered in the case. A tip-line has been set up for anyone with information: 1-855-744-3879.
