By  | 

Missing Wisconsin 13-year-old Jayme Closs has been found alive in Douglas County, Wisconsin.

The Sheriff’s Department said on its Facebook page a suspect was taken into custody, but has no further details.

No information on Closs' condition was immediately available.

The sheriff's statement said that its department "could not have endured this case without the support of the public and I want to thank them for all the support and help."

Barron County Sheriff’s Department said earlier that the finding of Closs was a false alert. They reported heavy law enforcement presence near Walworth County, but was not related to Closs.

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.

The deputies arrived at the home around four minutes after the end of a 911 call. They found the victims, but Jayme was not there and no gun was found, the Barron County sheriff said at the time.
