Jayme Closs, missing Wisconsin girl whose parents were shot dead, found safe

A 13-year-old Wisconsin girl, missing since her parents were discovered shot dead in their home three months ago, was found on Thursday (Jan 10), malnourished and dirty but alive, after apparently fleeing her captor in a remote community, police and media said.

Resident Kristin Kasinskas told the Star Tribune that a neighbor waking a dog knocked on her door Thursday afternoon.

KARE 11 in Minnesota reports that Closs was found at Eau Claire Acres, a small development east of Gordon, Wisconsin on Highway Y, according to the Eau Claire Board chairman. She confirmed that Jayme was found alive somewhere near Duluth. They offered her water and food, but she declined both.

"I think it's very unusual for where we are". From what she told them, they believe she was there for most of her disappearance.

Barron County Sheriff Department deputies arrived at the Closs home within 4 minutes of a 911 call but found no suspects or gun at the scene and no sign of Jayme. He says knowing she's been found is "unbelievable".

"Praise the Lord", Allard said between sobs. She had been missing for almost three months. The town is home to about 645 people in a heavily forested region where logging is the top industry.

The substance in the packages is "suspected to have been sourced from his Shepparton home" in Northern Victoria , police said . Police alleged that the man had sent 38 parcels in all to consulates and embassies in Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney .

Sue Allard said she "just had this feeling" about today and said she "can't wait to give her a hug". The department's non-emergency line rang unanswered Thursday evening and Sheriff Thomas Dalbec didn't immediately respond to an email. "And I just shut myself totally down".

Barron Mayor Ron Fladten says he hasn't heard any details about Closs' discovery. "A lot of people have been praying daily, as I have. We will not be answering any questions or taking calls on this tonight".

Jayme's name was added to the top of the FBI's Missing Persons list and has been on digital billboards across the nation since she vanished four months ago. "She's just so shy".

'We thought it was going to be a different ending and we're so happy. hopefully she's OK, we don't know what condition.

The arson investigation led them to Walworth County, where sources tell FOX6 News investigators found the remains in a burn pit on the property.
