Sheriff says missing Wisconsin teen Jayme Closs has been found alive

Jayme was allegedly found after a citizen phoned in information

Local authorities and the FBI launched an investigation into her disappearance and said at the time that they believed the teen was kidnapped.

According to Closs's aunt Sue Allard, the teenager was found after escaping and finding a woman walking her dog near Gordon, Wisconsin.

A press release from Franklin police said there is no danger to the public at this time.

"We promised to bring Jayme home and tonight we get to fulfill that promise", the statement concluded.

"Finally we want to especially thank the family for their support and patience while this case was ongoing", The department posted on Facebook.

Assistant Police Chief Kevin Magno of the Franklin Police Department also said the law enforcement presence had nothing to do with Closs.

We want to thank the Douglas Co Sheriff's Department and agencies assisting them tonight. Autopsies determined the two died of gunshot wounds and were murdered, and that Closs was inside the home when they were killed.

Barron County Sheriff's Department said earlier that the finding of Closs was a false alert. When the dispatcher called the number back, a voice mail greeting indicated the phone belonged to Denise Closs. Their 13 year-old daughter Jayme Closs was missing. Authorities also tried calling the home's landline but it was disconnected, records show.
