Sheriff's office: 13-year-old missing WI girl found alive

Jayme Closs, a teenager who disappeared in Wisconsin last October, has been found alive and a suspect has been taken into custody, officials said Thursday. A suspect was arrested at 4:54 p.m., also in Gordon.

CBS Minnesota spoke to Jayme's aunt Sue on Thursday evening, who said her niece was now in the hospital.

Missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs, who was kidnapped after her parents were found murdered in their Wisconsin home, has been found alive, police say.

Naiberg wrote "there are no words to describe" the feeling of having so many people come together to help. And as the mystery of her disappearance stretched past the fall and into the Christmas holiday, Jayme Closs's neighbors, classmates and family in Barron held vigil, wrapping a community tree in green and blue lights: green for hope, blue for grief.

This is a developing story.

WEAU will also live stream Friday's news conference at 10 a.m. on WEAU and weau.com. The call was "pinged" to the Closs home.

Police responded to the house after a odd 911 call just before 1 a.m. local time when someone called from Denise Closs' cellphone, and the 911 dispatcher heard "a lot of yelling", according to records from the Barron County Sheriff's Department obtained by ABC News.

Shortly after she was found, a suspect in the case was taken into custody. There are no other details on the case at this time due to a fluid and active investigation. "We will not be answering any questions or taking calls on this tonight".

The Barron County Sheriff's Office will be conducting a press briefing tomorrow at 10 am. They are being aided by the FBI and Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation agents.

Sheriff's Department and agencies assisting them tonight. We also want to thank all the Law Enforcement agencies across the state and country that have assisted us in this case. They could not have endured this case without the support of the public and want to thank them for all the support and help.
