A woman who walked on the dog stumbled across a thin, dirty girl with shoes too big for her. Soon he knocked on the doors of some neighbors and shouted, "It's Jayme Closs! Call 911." They did, and after calling the emergency number, the authorities confirmed that the youth was actually Jayme, whose parents were killed three months ago at their home in the US state of Wisconsin and had been missing ever since.
Jayme's parents, James of 56 and Denise, 46, were found shot at home. Now the teenager was found less than an hour's drive from his home in a rural area. The police arrested a man who was suspected of joining the case.
In a statement, the Wisconsin police announced, "We promised to bring Jayme home and tonight we kept it lifted."
About what happened in these three months is little or nothing known. Local newspapers like Minneapolis Star Tribune or the KARE television reported that Jayme had emerged within ten kilometers of Gordon.
According to the AP, the young woman in 20 minutes was waiting for the authorities in the teacher's house who called 911, but refused food or water.
On October 15, the police received an emergency call from the Barron Abbey House. It was made by a cell phone, but no one said anything. When agents arrived, they met the bodies of Jayme's parents, but no signs of weapons, suspects or teenagers.
In the following days, the police issued an application for Jayme, which was thought to have been taken away by armed men. It has come back now, after three months.
