Wisconsin teen missing since October found alive, suspect in custody

- Jayme Closs's family was emotional Thursday night after the 13-year-old girl missing since October was found near Gordon, WI.

"Praise the Lord", Ms Allard said. She confirmed that Jayme was found alive somewhere near Duluth.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune, citing "a source with knowledge of the investigation", reported Thursday night that Jayme had "escaped from a home in rural Gordon and approached a neighbor, identifying herself and saying she'd been kidnapped, and asked the neighbor to call 911". She had been missing for almost three months. Described as "5 feet tall and 100 pounds with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes", Jayme Closs is an 8th grader at Riverview Middle School in Barron.

A Wisconsin teenager who went missing after her parents were found shot to death inside their home was found safe on Thursday, police said.

In December, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald shared troubling details about the crime scene with DailyMail.com.

Jayme Closs, the 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who was declared "missing and endangered" after her parents were found dead in their home in October has been found.

Thousands of area residents joined volunteer search parties while investigators fielded thousands of tips, but there had been no sign of Jayme until Thursday's announcement.

She was rescued nine months later with the help of two witnesses who recognized her abductors from an America's Most Wanted episode.

Kelly Engelhardt, Jayme's aunt, told U.S. media she was "shocked".

In the weeks after Jayme's disappearance, local law enforcement said they were working under the assumption she was still alive and endangered.

Fitzgerald, however, said at a press conference in October: 'I'm telling you - Jayme is missing and endangered'.

Kelly said she didn't believe Jayme had been physically hurt and said she was expected to be home on Friday. The non-emergency line at the Douglas County Sheriff's Office rang unanswered and Sheriff Thomas Dalbec didn't respond to an email.

"We promised to bring Jayme home and tonight we get to fulfill that promise", the statement concluded.

"It's like taking a big black cloud in the sky and getting rid of it and the sun comes out again", he said. "I'm hoping that whatever is going on that it has a good ending, but we don't know". She said the family is focused on supporting Jayme.
