A missing 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who was kidnapped after her parents were found murdered in their home last October, has been found alive, police say.

Jayme Closs will be reunited with family members Thursday night, police said. She was located in Gordon, Wisconsin, officials said.

“We are just happy everyone kept praying and didn’t give up home like we didn’t,” Jayme’s aunt, Jennifer Smith, told ABC News. “A lot of happy tears in this house tonight.”

A suspect has been taken into custody, the Barron County Sheriff’s Department said in a news release. Police did not release any other details about the arrest.

A citizen phoned in the information that led to Jayme’s recovery, according to police.

“We thank everyone all around for their help,” Smith said.

Authorities have scheduled a press conference for 10 a.m. on Friday to discuss the case.
