Jayme Closs found alive, suspect in custody

We have team coverage of this developing story this morning.

We start with my coanchor dannika lewis who's live in barron this morning.


Leah, good morning... the barron county sheriff initially planned to update us on the search for jayme next week... but that will now happen at 10 this morning... after a thousands of tips led to the one that counted.

Jayme turned up around quarter to five yesterday.

Our news partners at wcco in minneapolis say a woman was walking her dog when jayme approached her, saying she needed help.

Jayme's family say she was treated at an area hospital last night before reuniting with the lived ones who spent the previous 87 days whether they'd ever see her again.

Jayme's aunt, sue naiberg allard: "there was rumors earlier today and i prayed and prayed they were true and they come not to be true, and then i totally shut myself down.

I thought today was going to be the day and then i find out two hours later she was found and i just cannot believe this."

Douglas county deputies did take a suspect into custody about 10 minutes after finding jayme.

There are no details on who that person is... ...or whether they'll be charged with murdering her parents who were found dead in their home the day jayme disappeared.

We hope to learn more about that suspect at the press conference at 10 a-m.

We'll be live with that here on news 3 and c3k.

This break in jayme's case comes after months of efforts to bring her home.

Christina lorey has more on what led up to the ending everyone was hoping for...
