Jayme Closs was located by police in the northwestern county of Douglas, Wisconsin, on Thursday evening, police officials said in a statement released on Facebook.

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

The announcement, which was posted online around 8 p.m., came just hours after the sheriff's office wrote in a separate post that Closs "has NOT been located-this is false news".

Jayme's grandfather, Robert Naiberg, said, "Everybody is so happy".

"To all of you who joined us in keeping Jayme Closs in our thoughts and prayers.tonight our prayers have been answered!"

Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said Jayme was expected to be reunited with her remaining family.

The following Wednesday, the deaths of James and Denise Closs were officially ruled as homicide by a medical examiner.
