Less than four hours before he announced that Closs had been found, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald addressed in another social media post apparent rumors that Closs had been found. "Jayme Closs has NOT been located-this is false news", he posted just before 4:30 p.m.

Relatives of Closs spoke to FOX 9 Thursday night to describe what finding her means to the family.

Barron County authorities have said Jayme was home when her parents were killed.

Our NBC affiliate in Minneapolis, KARE 11 is reporting Jayme Closs, the girl missing since October since the murder of her parents, was found in a development outside of Gordon, Wisconsin in Douglas County.

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

They said a suspect believed to be linked to the case was now in custody. "Jayme has been found!", Kroeze posted.

Jayme Closs had been missing since her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found shot to death October 15 in the family's home near Barron. Some tips led officials to recruit 2000 volunteers for a massive ground search on October 23.

Investigators will discuss the case with the media Friday morning at 10 the Barron County Sheriff's office. There are no more details available at this time as the investigation is still active.

"I have a gut feeling she's (Jayme's) still alive. I've always been a glass half-full kind of guy", Sheriff Fitzgerald said at the time.

Nobody in the family has seen Closs yet and she is still with law enforcement.

"There was a lot of discouragement because this took quite a while to play out", Fladten said.

"To all of you who joined us in keeping Jayme Closs in our thoughts and prayers.tonight our prayers have been answered! 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". Douglas County, where Jayme was found, is hundreds of miles northwest of Walworth County.
