CHICAGO: A 13-year-old girl missing for almost three months after her parents were shot dead has been found, her hair matted and wearing oversized shoes, reports AFP.

“Jayme Closs was located alive,” the sheriff’s office in Douglas County, Wisconsin, said in a statement late Thursday.

It said she was located in the town of Gordon, near Lake Superior and northeast of Minneapolis. A suspect was in custody.   Douglas County is just north of Barron County, where Closs lived.

The sheriff’s department in Barron County was set to release more details on Friday after describing the investigation as “very fluid and active” following the suspect’s arrest.

The Star Tribune newspaper in Minneapolis reported on its website that a neighbor walking a dog knocked on the door of Kristin and Peter Kasinskas’s home east of Gordon.

With the neighbor was a gaunt, bedraggled girl with matted hair and shoes too big for her feet.
