Closs, just 13 years old, disappeared from her parent’s home the day they were found dead.

Both parents were shot to death and authorities ruled their deaths homicides.

Police say a teenager was home during the violence, but have said previously they do not believe she is a suspect.

A nationwide search for the teen turned up false leads which kept investigators puzzled and led to a $50,000 reward for information.

A news conference is expected to take place at 11 Friday morning.
