The Douglas County Sheriff's Office confirms that Barron County missing person JAYME CLOSS was located alive in the Town of Gordon in Douglas County at 4:43pm and a suspect was taken into custody at 4:54pm, also in the Town of Gordon.

A suspect has been taken into custody, the Barron County Sheriff's Department said in a news release.

Jayme vanished on October 15, the same day her parents were found fatally shot in their northwestern Wisconsin home. They are being aided by the FBI and Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation agents.

He also thanked the Douglas County Sheriff's Department, which responded to the scene when Jayme was found, and other law enforcement agencies that helped in the search.

"I honestly had faith", she said.

"It's hard to explain, it is really hard to explain because my hope was real and it's real for every searching parent until you know that it's not", she said.

Kelly said she didn't believe Jayme had been physically hurt and said she was expected to be home on Friday.

Closs has been missing since October 15th after her parents were found murdered in their home.

"She saw this girl screaming 'help me, help me, '" Kasinskas said.

Authorities said Jayme was located shortly before 5 p.m., and a suspect arrested 10 minutes later.

"I was at the right place at the right time", the woman said.

Jayme and her mother attended a family birthday party together on Sunday afternoon while Mr Closs was at work, Jayme's grandfather told the Associated Press.

Wetterling was at a board meeting for the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in Washington, D.C. when she heard that Jayme had been found.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that she approached a dog walker in a small development with few residents east of the town of Gordon.

Jayme Closs is seen in an undated photo released October 15, 2018, by the Barron County Sheriff's Department. The decorations spell out Jayme's name in big, glittery letters, and they include green bulbs and ribbons.

While Kasinskas said Jayme didn't provide many details, she did make it clear that she had been taken, saying she was kept in the nearby Eau Claire Acres neighborhood.

'Praise the Lord. It's the news we've been waiting on for three months.
