Now she was standing at the Kasinskas' doorstep. Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told the Minneapolis Star Tribune that Jayme was taken to hospital.
"I think it's very unusual for where we are".
"My jaw hit the floor".
A $50,000 reward had been offered for information on Jayme Closs' whereabouts.
Closs had managed to escape from a home where she had been held against her will.
Next to her neighbor, Kasinskas said, was a young girl. "It looks like they're looking for somebody or something, because of the search dog we just saw passing by". That arson investigation led them to his Franklin home, according to sources, who tell FOX6 News they found clothes soaked in diesel fuel and blood. She wasn't crying or upset. "She just yelled, 'Please help me".
Jayme had made her way to a neighborhood in Gordon, Wisconsin, where she found someone who could call for help.
"Jayme was able to give us the person's name and the color of the auto that he drove (red), so when we called the police they could know who they were looking for". I don't know where I am.
Authorities say she was found just after 4:30 p.m., and the suspect was arrested just ten minutes later. Kasinskas knew the name of the alleged abductor. I'm lost, ' " Nutter told Wisconsin Public Radio.
She said the family is waiting to hear about the next steps. "Not really", Kristin said on Today.
Smart, who testified that she was raped daily during her ordeal, has gone on to work as an activist and advocate for missing persons. They found the victims, but Jayme was not there and no gun was found, the Barron County sheriff said at the time.
"That is the will of a kid to survive", Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said at a press conference Friday.
Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, overwhelmed and crying, could barely express her joy after learning the news. Following her release, Jayme will get the chance to reunite with her family. "I just can't wait".
She added: "I have no doubt Jayme and her family will forever appreciate the efforts and prayers of the many thousands of people who contributed and kept them in their thoughts and prayers!"
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has also spoken out.
The same day, people gather at Barron High School football stadium for "A Gathering of Hope", an event to honor Jayme.
Police found her parents James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, shot dead, and undertook a nationwide search for Jayme, describing her as "endangered", but the trail had gone cold until Thursday.
A 13-year-old girl missing for nearly three months after her parents were shot dead has been found, her hair matted and wearing oversized shoes.
Jamie Closs was found in Gordon, about 66 miles from where she was last seen, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office said.
