Missing Wisconsin Girl Found Alive
A 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who went missing last October after her parents were killed has been found alive. The Barron County Sheriff's Department confirmed on their Facebook page that Jayme Closs has been located and a suspect is in custody.
Sheriff's officials in Douglas County, about 70 miles north of Barron County, located the girl. A suspect was apprehended a short time later. No other details have been released at this time. Law enforcement officials held a press conference at 10 a.m. this morning to provide an update on the situation.
Jayme Closs had been missing since her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found shot to death in the family's home on October 15th, 2018. Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched surveillance videos and conducted a massive ground search for Closs.
The announcement of Closs being found happened just hours after sheriff's officials took to Facebook to tell people that reports of her discovery in Walworth County, Wisconsin were false.
