Jayme Closs, missing Wisconsin teen, found alive after almost three months


Jayme Closs, the 13-year-old girl who disappeared in mid-October when her parents were murdered inside their Wisconsin home, was found alive late Thursday.

Closs was found by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office Thursday evening, more than three months after she went missing.

Residents of Barron, Wisconsin, never gave up on Closs’ return, but family and friends held in mid-December as leads into her whereabouts remained thin.
