Sheriff: Missing teen Jayme Closs found alive

Police responded to the house after a unusual 911 call just before 1 a.m. local time when someone called from Denise Closs' cellphone, and the 911 dispatcher heard "a lot of yelling", according to records from the Barron County Sheriff's Department obtained by ABC News. A suspect was arrested at 4:54 p.m., also in Gordon.

Sheriff Fitzgerald said in November that he kept similar cases in the back of his mind as he worked to find Jayme, including the abduction of Elizabeth Smart, who was taken from her Salt Lake City home in 2002, when she was 14 years old.

The cousin of a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who was missing nearly three months before being found safe Thursday is thanking law enforcement and the community for support.

Jayme went missing on October 15, when her parents, James and Denise Closs, who worked for Jennie-O Turkey, were both found shot to death in their rural home.

Closs's disappearance was the subject of a nationwide search for the teen, with an AMBER Alert issued for the teen.

This story is developing.

A news conference is scheduled for 10:00 a.m. Described as "5 feet tall and 100 pounds with strawberry-blond hair and green eyes", Jayme Closs is an 8th grader at Riverview Middle School in Barron. Police said a suspect is in custody. There are no more details available at this time as the investigation is still active.

"We want to thank the Douglas Co Sheriff's Department and agencies assisting them tonight". Local investigators were aided by the Wisconsin Division of Criminal Investigation and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. We also want to thank all the Law Enforcement agencies across the state and county that have assisted us in this case.

"Finally we want to especially thank the family for their support and patience while this case was ongoing", The department posted on Facebook. "We do believe Jayme was home at the time the call was made". "From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!"

"This case has been very trying on the family so please respect their privacy and we reunite them later tonight", Fitzgerald's said.
