Nobody spoke during the 911 call, but a disturbance could be heard. Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Jayme was taken to hospital.

Jayme Closs was located in the rural town of Gordon in Douglas County, Wisconsin around 70 miles north of her family home in Barron County.

CBS Minnestoa reports that up until Thursday, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has said investigators had not received any credible leads in this case, despite thousands of tips. The FBI offered a cash reward for information on her whereabouts and hunters in the area were also urged to be on the lookout for clues.

The police said they would reveal more details later today.

Jayme vanished October 15, the day her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found fatally shot in their home near Barron, a town of 3,300 people in northwestern Wisconsin.

Investigators say they don't consider Jayme a suspect in her parents' deaths.

"It's time to move forward and bring justice for my sister and brother-in-law and we'll get through this with Jayme together as a big family", said Jennifer Naiberg. "It's the news we've been waiting on for three months".

Smart was 14 when she was abducted from her Salt Lake City home in 2002. She has been missing since October 2018. She had been found alive. Police arrived to find the door kicked in, but Jayme was nowhere to be found, and investigators believe she was abducted and may be in danger.

Nutter asked Jayme what sort of auto the person who took her was driving, in case they needed to run. Kasinskas says she recognized the name but didn't know the person.

"Jayme we missed you, and we are so grateful you are home", Tremblay said, speaking for the whole community. It was her neighbour, who had been out walking her dog, with Jayme alongside.

They rushed to the nearest home, which happened to be that of Kasinskas. A suspect in the case has also been taken into custody.

According to Closs's aunt Sue Allard, the teenager was found after escaping and finding a woman walking her dog in a housing development outside the town.

"I just cried. lots of happy tears", Jen Smith, the girl's aunt, told ABC's Good Morning America early Friday.

A man believed to be connected to the case is now in custody.

The Barron County Sheriff's Office, in a statement posted to Facebook, said authorities were unable to share additional details, citing a "very fluid and active investigation".

Jayme had been missing since October 15.

The teen will now be reunited with family members.

Barron County District Attorney Brian Wright told reporters that a criminal complaint would be filed next week, and it was his job to "obtain justice for James, Denise and Jayme Closs". I'm lost, ' " Nutter told Wisconsin Public Radio.

Police said Jayme Closs was taken against her will and escaped a home where she was being held.
