BARRON, Wis. (AP) -- The aunt of Wisconsin teenager who disappeared after her parents were killed in the family's home says the girl escaped from where she was being held and ran to a woman walking her dog for help.

Jen Smith tells ABC's ``Good Morning America'' that investigators told her that her niece, 13-year-old Jayme Closs, had escaped and was being treated at a hospital Thursday.


Smith says she was given no other details about the case, other than being told a suspect was in custody.

Investigators confirm they have a suspect in custody, but say no other details would be released until a Friday news conference.

Jayme had been missing since Oct. 15. Police discovered someone had broken into her family's home in Barron, killed her parents and apparently abducted her.

Jayme was found in the Town of Gordon, about an hour's drive north of Barron.
