Churchgoers in a small northwestern Wisconsin town say their prayers were answered by the safe return of a 13-year-old girl nearly three months after authorities say she was abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

At St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Barron, Mary Haas says the reappearance of Jayme Closs is "a miracle and it's wonderful."
