- Authorities were looking for Jayme since his parents were found dead in October
- A suspect was taken into custody
- The local mayor says he hopes to be in "good shape"  The Minnesota Star Tribune newspaper said Jayme was found thin and dirty, with shoes too big for her feet, but apparently apparently OK when she was discovered by a resident who walked with her dog near the small town of Wisconsin of Gordon about 100 kilometers of Barron .
Jayme, James and Denise Closs's parents were found dead on October 15th in the Barron family home.
The resident – who asked the Star Tribune not to be named – slammed the door of the neighbors shouting "This is Jayme Clos s! Call 911!" After Jayme had approached her for help.
Neighbors, Kristin and Peter Kasinskas, gave Jayme food and water while they waited for the police to arrive.
"Honestly, I still think he's dreaming – as if I saw a ghost," Kasinskas told the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
"My jaw went to the floor."
According to the authorities, a suspect was arrested and placed in custody shortly after his detention.

Barron County, Wisconsin, sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said that Jayme would have to rejoin his remaining family.
Jayme's aunt, Sue Allard, told the Minnesota Star Tribune newspaper that she could hardly express her joy after learning the news.
"Praise the Lord," said Mrs. Allard.
"It is the news we have been waiting for three months, I can not wait to embrace it, I can not wait."
The girl had been excluded as suspicious in the parents' deaths
The investigators said that Jayme was immediately dismissed as suspect.
Investigators have pursued thousands of suggestions, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted extensive research in the effort to find Jayme. Some councils have led officials to recruit 2,000 volunteers for massive land searches on October 23rd.
Sheriff Fitzgerald said in November that he had kept similar cases in the back of his mind while trying to find Jayme, including the kidnapping of Elizabeth Smart, which was taken from her home in Salt Lake City in 2002, when she had 14 years.
She was rescued nine months later with the help of two witnesses who recognized her abductors from an episode of Most Wanted in America.
"I have an instinctive sense of being (Jayme) still alive – that kind of person," Sheriff Fitzgerald said at that moment.
The mayor of Barron, Ron Fladten, said he had not heard any details about Jayme's discovery but was delighted to learn that she is alive.
"There was a lot of discouragement because it took a while to play," Fladten said.
"Many people have prayed daily, like I did. And it's just a great result we got tonight. It's amazing, it's like taking a big black cloud in the sky and getting rid of it and the sun comes out again. "

He acknowledged that Jayme might not be the same person he was before he disappeared.
"I hope he is in good shape", said the mayor.
"No doubt it was just a terrible ordeal, I think everyone wishes her a good recovery and a happy life for the future."
