Jayme Closs, 13, who went missing nearly three months ago from her Wisconsin home, was located alive Thursday evening, according to the Barron County Sheriff's Office.

It is not immediately clear where or how Jayme was found. Barron County Sheriff's Office plans on holding a press briefing Friday morning.

We will have a live report from Barron County during WEAU 13 News at 10 p.m.

"Tonight, we actually got false news again this afternoon and I really had my hopes up then", Sue Allard said.

On the sheriff department's Facebook page later on Thursday evening, Fitzgerald wrote that Closs would be reunited with her family that night. The call was "pinged" to the Closs home. We also want to thank all the Law Enforcement agencies across the state and county that have assisted us in this case. The statement did not say where Jayme was found or give any further information about the suspect.

Jayme Closs, whose parents, aged 56 and 46, were discovered shot in their family home previous year, was located on Thursday evening, police said.

Jayme Closs, 13, vanished on October 15 after her parents were fatally shot at their home in Barron County, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

Jayme's name was added to the top of the FBI's Missing Persons list and has been on digital billboards across the nation since she vanished four months ago.

Both Jayme and Denise have been described as quiet, kind, religious and giving, an example of how a loving mom raised her daughter with her own good values.

The sheriff previously said his office was receiving around 25 tips per day regarding Closs' disappearance.

911 logs released days later appeared to indicate that the cell phone of Closs' mother, 46-year-old Denise Closs, placed the call and that her father, 56-year-old James Closs, answered the door and was the first to be fatally shot.
