Wisconsin Teen Found Alive After Being Missing For Three Months Following Parents’ Death

Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs was found alive months after her parents were found fatally shot in the family’s home near Barron.

According to the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office, Closs was found Thursday afternoon in Gordon, which is less than 70 miles from where she went missing.

The 13-year-old reportedly asked for help from a woman walking her dog, and the pair went to a nearby home and called the police.

Thousands of volunteers have been looking for Closs for months, and the FBI offered a $50,000 reward for her discovery.

Officials believe someone broke into the family home and shot and killed both of the teen’s parents on October 15.

Authorities believe the 13-year-old was home when her parents were gunned down, and kidnapped before police arrived on the scene.

A suspect has since been taken into custody.
