Missing Wisconsin teen found alive

11 January 2019

Police did not release any other details about the arrest.

The cousin of a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who was missing nearly three months before being found safe Thursday is thanking law enforcement and the community for support.

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. 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.

Stay with WEAU for more information as this story develops. Described as "5 feet tall and 100 pounds with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes", Jayme Closs is an 8th grader at Riverview Middle School in Barron.

Breaking news out of Douglas County, Jayme Closs has been found.

CBS Minnestoa reports that up until Thursday, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has said investigators had not received any credible leads in this case, despite thousands of tips.

Batshuayi to leave Valencia 'in the coming hours or days'
Even with our dire need for a new striker, it's hard to see him returning to West London and joining up with the Chelsea squad. The Belgium global joined the Spanish club on a season-long deal but has scored just three goals in 23 appearances.

"No one talked on that call and we don't know who made it".

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

Sheriff's Department and agencies assisting them tonight. "There is a heavy law enforcement presence near Walworth Co but it is not related to Jayme Closs". We also could not have endured this case without the support of the public and I want to thank them for all the support and help.

Two months after Jayme had been missing, Fitzgerald said the lack of evidence seemed to suggest that the killer or killers didn't get far in the home as investigators had not recovered any DNA evidence or fingerprints, nor did they find shoe prints inside the home. "From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!"

Sheriff Fitzgerald also says that "This case has been very trying on the family so please respect their privacy and we reunite them later tonight".
