Barron County Sheriff's Department confirms that Jayme Closs has been found alive

Jayme Closs teenager missing since October whose parents were murdered found alive

Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old girl who vanished after her parents were found dead in their northwestern Wisconsin home, has been found alive, the Barron County Sheriff's Department said. A suspect in the case has also been taken into custody.

He said he first learned Jayme had been found while listening to a police scanner, adding that he heard Jayme was walking down the road and someone stopped near her. Kline said he heard over the scanner that Jayme told them who she was and they brought her to their home.

They noted that multiple other agencies were assisting, including the Walworth County Sheriff's Office, Wisconsin Department of Justice, the Town of East Troy Police Department and Milwaukee Police Department. They could not have endured this case without the support of the public and want to thank them for all the support and help.

A source with knowledge of the investigation said Jayme had escaped from a home in rural Gordon and approached a neighbour, identifying herself and saying she had been kidnapped, and asked the neighbour to call 911. "From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!"

Closs disappeared on October 15, 2018, the same day her parents - James, 56, and Denise, 46 - were found shot to death inside their Barron home.

On Thursday night, Barron County's Sheriff, Chris Fitzgerald, announced the good news on the department's Twitter page. "Jayme has been found!", Kroeze posted. Investigators said Jayme was quickly ruled out as a suspect.

A suspect has been taken into custody and the sheriff will give a press briefing at 10 a.m. Friday. Smith told KSTP the family wants justice for her sister and brother-in-law who were murdered.

Jayme was believed to be home when they were killed but had been abducted by the time authorities arrived.

Thousands of people had joined search parties for Jayme, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation was offering a reward of $25,000 for information on her whereabouts. The call was "pinged" to the Closs home. "We are also hopeful for the safe return of their daughter, Jayme, and are keeping her and the Closs family in our thoughts".
