A Minor Miracle – Kidnapped Teen Found After 3 months

Posted by Jack

Missing teen Jayme Closs was found alive and a suspect is in custody, the Barron County Sheriff’s Department reported on its Facebook page Thursday night.

Jayme vanished early Oct. 15 when sheriff’s deputies, responding to a 911 call, found the door to her family’s home near Barron kicked in. Her parents, James, 56, and Denise, 46, were found shot to death, but Jayme was missing. She had not been seen or heard from since.

The Sheriff’s Department was notified earlier Thursday evening by the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office that it had located Jayme, 13, a student at Riverview Middle School in Barron, the Facebook post said.

A suspect was taken into custody shortly after Jayme was located, the Facebook post said.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reported that a source with knowledge of the investigation said Jayme escaped from a home and approached a neighbor, identifying herself and asking the neighbor to call 911.

This kid was so incredibly lucky, usually if a kidnap victim is not found in the first 48 hours their odds of coming back alive start dropping exponentially with every passing day. 

I am so happy to read this “good news”that I had to post it for you.

    Well, she’s more fortunate than Jaycee Dugard … maybe. Lucky is a word I would not use.

    In some of us, this situation inspires an unwanted and inescapable meditation on the nature of the male … which is not “good news”.
