Missing Wisconsin Girl, 13, Found Alive

Jayme Closs teenager missing since October whose parents were murdered found alive

Officials with the Douglas County Sheriff's Department posted a note on its website saying Jayme was "located" in the Town of Gordon at 4:43 p.m. Thursday, and a suspect was apprehended in the town about 10 minutes later. Following her release, Jayme will get the chance to reunite with her family.

Sheriff Fitzgerald said in November that he kept similar cases in the back of his mind as he worked to find Jayme, including the abduction of Elizabeth Smart, who was taken from her Salt Lake City home in 2002, when she was 14 years old.

Our NBC affiliate in Minneapolis, KARE 11 is reporting Jayme Closs, the girl missing since October since the murder of her parents, was found in a development outside of Gordon, Wisconsin in Douglas County. Police said a suspect is in custody. "Jayme has been found!", Kroeze posted.

Investigators believe Jayme was abducted October 15 before dawn after her parents, James and Denise Closs, aged 56 and 46, were gunned down in their home in Barron. Some tips led officials to recruit 2,000 volunteers for a massive ground search on October 23. At the time, authorities believe Closs was inside her home when her parents were killed, but was gone by the time deputies arrived at the scene.

A suspect in her disappearance is in custody.

"I hope that she's in good shape", the mayor said.

"We promised to bring Jayme home and tonight we get to fulfil that promise", a police statement said. "It's unbelievable. It's like taking a big black cloud in the sky and getting rid of it and the sun comes out again". "I thought today was going to be the day, and then I find out two hours later that she's found and I just can not believe this".

"They were just two peas in a pod", family friend Melissa Salmonson tells PEOPLE, describing the pair as "almost inseparable" and saying Denise "was pretty quiet and shy like Jayme - they were similar".

Franklin police said an ongoing criminal investigation led officers there.
