Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old girl who vanished after her parents were found dead in their northwestern Wisconsin home, has been found alive, the Barron County Sheriff's Department said.

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

A Barron County, Wis., sheriff's vehicle was parked outside the home where James Closs and Denise Closs were found fatally shot on October 15.

A suspect is in custody shortly after Jayme was found, according to the Barron County Sheriff.

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

Allard said she and other family members didn't have a lot of details about what happened, and they were asked by authorities not to say too much about what they do know.

The disappearance gained nationwide attention in the U.S., and a Facebook group called "Abducted - Find Jayme Closs" was set up to aid the search.

The department shared on Facebook Thursday night that they've been notified by the Douglas County Sheriff's Department that they had located Closs alive. "We also could not have endured this case without the support of the public and I want to thank them for all the support and help", Fitzgerald wrote.

"We are just happy everyone kept praying and didn't give up home like we didn't", Jayme's aunt, Jennifer Smith, told ABC News.

Chris Fitzgerald, the Baron County Police Sheriff confirms the report on Twitter.

Franklin police, in a statement issued around 3 p.m., would only say the "ongoing criminal investigation is active and ongoing". We are receiving support from the FBI and WI DCI agents as this investigation continues.

Denny Kline, board chairman in the Town of Gordon, says he first learned Jayme was found while listening to a police scanner, which he has for work. The call was "pinged" to the Closs home.

In the weeks after Jayme's disappearance, local law enforcement said they were working under the assumption she was still alive and endangered.

'It was just unbelievable because you hear about... you're not sure if she's not going to be found.
