"Jayme Closs was not located-this is a false new story".

Closs disappeared October 15, 2018, the same day her parents - James and Denise Closs - were found shot to death inside their Barron home.

Jayme went missing on October 15 after police discovered someone had broken into the family's home outside Barron and fatally shot her parents, James and Denise Closs.

Kelly Engelhardt, Jayme's aunt, told USA media she was "shocked".

The neighbor was walking her dog when Jayme approached and asked for help, according to Kasinskas, a local teacher. "Love your children, talk to your children and hopefully that will never happen to them". Smith told KSTP the family wants justice for her sister and brother-in-law who were murdered. "I've always been a glass half-full kind of guy", Fitzgerald said at the time.

"It was literally like we were seeing a ghost, because we have seen the billboards and the commercials and all that stuff", he told CBS News, "and there she is in my kitchen".

She was found in Douglas County, Wisconsin, and a suspect was taken into custody shortly after she was found.

"Oh my gosh", Allard told CNN affiliate WCCO between sobs. He says knowing she's been found is "unbelievable". From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!'

Police arrived minutes later and found her parents, James and Denise Closs, dead from apparent gunshot wounds. "Call 911!" the neighbor said to Kasinskas.

Yet the allegations by prosecutors in Manhattan claim strong connections between Veselnitskaya and Russian government officials. Russian prosecutors accuse Magnitsky of participating in the largest tax fraud in Russian history worth $200 million.

On Oct. 15 an inaudible 911 call led police to Jayme's home in Barron, which is about 90 miles northeast of the Twin Cities.

When authorities responded to the home, they found the front door kicked in and the couple had been shot to death.

Meanwhile, Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, could barely express her joy after learning that the girl was found.

The FBI offers $25,000 for information leading to Jayme's location.

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

"We do not have any other details at this time as this is a very fluid and active investigation", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald posted on Facebook.

Jasmine Hightower, manager of a McDonald's in Barron, said people are just happy to hear that Jayme is alive. "I've been in the dumpster for three months", he said.

This case has been very trying on the family so please respect their privacy and we reunite them later tonight.
