Wisconsin teenager missing since October, has been found alive; suspect in custody

Jake Thomas Patterson is being held in the kidnapping of Jayme Closs and the murder of her parents

We want to thank the Douglas Co Sheriff's Department and agencies assisting them tonight. Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said Jayme was expected to be reunited with her family Thursday night (local time).

Jayme Closs, the 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who has been missing for almost three months, has been found.

Jayme Closs, 13, who went missing nearly three months ago from her Wisconsin home, was located alive Thursday evening, according to the Barron County Sheriff's Office.

Shortly after this a suspect was taken into custody in regards to this case.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department said on its Facebook page that Jayme Closs has been located and that a suspect was taken into custody. "Jayme has been found!", Kroeze posted.

Jayme was missing since October 15 when her parents were murdered in their home. Some tips led officials to recruit 2,000 volunteers for a massive ground search on October 23. He wrote that he had no additional details to report, but has scheduled a news conference for 10 a.m. Friday in Barron. She was rescued nine months later with the help of two witnesses who recognised her abductors from an America's Most Wanted episode.

And as the mystery of her disappearance stretched past the fall and into the Christmas holiday, Jayme Closs's neighbors, classmates and family in Barron held vigil, wrapping a community tree in green and blue lights: green for hope, blue for grief. I can't wait to get my arms around her.

Authorities began to search for the teenager after deputies called to the Closs home in the city of Barron found her parents, James Closs, 56, and his wife, Denise, 46, dead.

"There was a lot of discouragement because this took quite a while to play out", Fladten said. "We do believe Jayme was home at the time the call was made". "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".

Both Jayme and Denise have been described as quiet, kind, religious and giving, an example of how a loving mom raised her daughter with her own good values. She asks people to continue to pray for "Jayme's well-being and our families healing". "She's no doubt been through just a awful ordeal. I thought today was going to be the day, and then I find out two hours later she's found and I just can not believe this".

Franklin police said an ongoing criminal investigation led officers there.

Douglas County is roughly 80 miles north of Barron County.
