Missing teen whose parents were shot is found alive, suspect in custody

Missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs has been found alive in Douglas County, according to Barron County Sheriff's Department.

The Douglas County Sheriff's Department in Wisconsin notified the Barron County Sheriff's Department on Thursday that they had located Jayme alive.

Closs, 13, had been missing for months after her parents were murdered inside their home back in October. "We also could not have endured this case without the support of the public and I want to thank them for all the support and help", Fitzgerald wrote.

Authorities began to search for the teenager after deputies called to the Closs home in the city of Barron found her parents, James Closs, 56, and his wife, Denise, 46, dead.

Making the day even more emotional was a false tip that got the family's hopes up earlier in the day. And when you actually hear it, it's just unbelievable.

Sheriff's officials in Barron County say they will reunite Closs with other family members on Thursday night. "A lot of happy tears in this house tonight".

WCCO's Mary McGuire spoke with a woman over the phone who confirmed she was the one who first encountered Jayme Closs on Thursday afternoon.

When authorities responded to the home, they found the front door kicked in and the couple had been shot to death.

Both Denise and James died "instantly" of their wounds, the sheriff said.

Police responded to the house after a odd 911 call in which no one spoke. Police arrived four minutes later to find her and her husband dead. There was nothing taken and nothing disturbed.

Fitzgerald said: 'That's the frustrating part of it. When we discovered it was a major crime, we sealed it off immediately. He said the matter was an open investigation and could not provide additional details.

"All I know is that they got her and that they're checking her out at a hospital", Naiberg said. Her disappearance united people in Barron County and across the state.
