Timeline of the 87 days of Jayme Closs' disappearance

Authorities in northwestern Wisconsin say a 13-year-old girl who went missing in October after her parents were killed has been found alive.

According to the Barron County Sheriff's Department, Jayme was located alive by the Douglas County, Wisconsin, Sheriff's Department.

While Kasinskas said Closs didn't give them too many details, she did make it clear that she was taken.

"She kind of flung the door open and said, 'Call 911, this is Jayme Closs!'" Kristin recalled her neighbor telling her.

"Jayme was taken against her will and escaped from a residence at which she was being held, and found help", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald.

In the days after Jayme's disappearance, law enforcement officials assured the public they believed she was alive and in danger. Patterson had no local or national criminal history, police said. Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Jayme was taken to hospital.

As the stunned neighbors stood at the door, Jayme did not say a word.

The teen will now be reunited with family members.

Gordon lies about 40 miles south of Lake Superior and about 65 miles north of Barron, Jayme's hometown.

Hart seemed taken aback by the news, and said that he'd keep an open mind about hosting. "There's no more conversation about it. When host Michael Strahan asked if he would return to host the Oscars if asked, the comedian responded with a strong denial.


Kasinskas said she brought the "slender-looking" girl into her living room and sat down with her.

"There was rumors earlier today, and I prayed and prayed and they come to not be true", Jayme's aunt Sue told WCCO. She said she never saw Patterson on her street or in town, and doesn't remember seeing him since he was in high school.

The Barron County sheriff's office planned to hold a news conference on Friday morning to discuss the case. "I've been in the dumpster for three months". "I just can't wait".

Nobody in the family has seen Closs yet and she is still with law enforcement.

Her parents had been shot to death and investigators confirmed Friday that Jayme witnessed the killings before being abducted.

Investigators continue to speak to Jayme, and are still learning more about her frightening ordeal, Fitzgerald said.

A 13-year-old American girl, missing for nearly three months after her parents were shot dead at their home in the US Midwest, has been found alive with her hair matted and wearing oversized shoes.

The searches and thousands of tips had not yielded any clues before Thursday.

Barron Mayor Ron Fladten said: 'A lot of people have been praying daily, as I have. The "tree of hope" was decorated with messages and lighted in blue, Jayme's favorite color, and green to symbolize missing child awareness, the Star Tribune reported. "They offered her food and water but she declined". "I just can't wait".
