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

Family has been reunited with Jayme Closs

Shortly after Closs was found, a suspect was taken into custody. We also want to thank all the Law Enforcement agencies across the state and country that have assisted us in this case.

A 911 call with garbled audio was made from Denise Closs' cellphone at about 1 a.m. on October 15.

Less than four hours before he announced that Closs had been found, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald addressed in another social media post apparent rumors that Closs had been found. "Jayme Closs has NOT been located-this is false news", he posted just before 4:30 p.m.

We are planning a press briefing approximately 10 am tomorrow at the Sheriff's Department in Barron.

Jayme Closs, 13, vanished on October 15 after her parents were fatally shot at their home in Barron County, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

Detectives have pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and spent countless hours searching for Closs since her October 15 disappearance. They found the victims, but Jayme was not there and no gun was found, the Barron County sheriff said at the time.

The call came from Denise's phone, according to the dispatch logs. "On Oct. 15, just before 1 a.m., authorities received a 911 call in which nobody spoke to the dispatcher but "a lot of yelling" could be heard", according to a dispatch log released by the Barron County Sheriff's Department and obtained by CNN.

The dispatch logs reveal that a responding officer found "the door [to the Closs home had] been kicked in". There was no sign of Jayme inside the home.

"I have a gut feeling she's (Jayme's) still alive".

BARRON COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - Jayme Closs has been located.

He acknowledged that Jayme may not be the same person she was before she disappeared. Neighbors, family and volunteers gathered to help with searches of the area. Smith there are a lot of happy tears in her house. But Denise was always there. Half the reward was put up by Jennie-O Turkey Store, a turkey hatchery and processing plant in Barron where Jayme's parents worked. "This is a hard time for our entire team and we are mourning this loss and are still processing this awful tragedy".

Throughout the investigation, Fitzgerald said he did not believe that that Closs was involved in her parents' deaths.
