"Finally we want to especially thank the family for their support and patience while this case was ongoing". We also want to thank all the Law Enforcement agencies across the state and country that have assisted us in this case.

Jayme's aunt Sue has spoken out about the news, telling WCCO-TV that her niece is in the hospital.

Fitzgerald said authorities in Douglas County, about 112 kilometres north of Barron County, located the girl.

The call came from Denise's phone, according to the dispatch logs. The call was "pinged" to the Closs home.

Closs was missing since October 15.

The dispatch logs reveal that a responding officer found "the door [to the Closs home had] been kicked in".

Jayme Closs has been missing since her parents - James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46 - were found fatally shot in their home on October 15.
