Jayme Closs sighting in Walworth County is false, sheriff says

Walworth County (WQOW) – Reports that Jayme Closs was found Thursday afternoon are false, according to Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald.

The rumor started spreading on Thursday afternoon because of a large police presence at a rural farm in Walwroth County. The rumor was shared by social groups with thousands of followers.

Sheriff Fitzgerald quickly dispelled the rumors on Thursday saying, “Jayme Closs was not located-this is a false new story.  There is a heavy police presence near Walworth Co but it is unrelated to the Jayme Closs case.”
