“We need to keep the attention and awareness for Jayme.”

Those words from Cornell resident Kathy Swanson at a Cornell City Council meeting Jan. 3, sparked a movement to bring 13-year-old Jayme Closs back to her family.

Jayme was believed to have been abducted Oct. 15, after her parents, Denise and Jim Closs, were found shot to death in their Barron home. Since then, no one has seen or heard from the teenager, and clues have run short.

The connection hits home, as Jayme’s maternal family are the Naibergs from Cornell.
