“48 HOURS” TO BROADCAST “JAYME CLOSS COMES HOME” A SPECIAL EDITION FOCUSING ON THE DISAPPEARANCE AND RETURN OF A WISCONSIN TEENAGER

Saturday, Jan. 12 (10:00 PM, ET/PT)

48 HOURS will deliver a one-hour special edition focusing on the disappearance and return of a Wisconsin teenager in “Jayme Closs Comes Home” to be broadcast Saturday, Jan. 12 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. This broadcast replaces the previously scheduled edition “Knock Knock,” which will be presented at a later date.

Closs, 13, disappeared from her family’s home in the town of Barron, Wis. on Oct. 15, 2018. Police responding to a strange 911 call from the home found both of her parents dead. Closs was found alive on Jan. 10, when she approached a dog walker in a Wisconsin town about 70 miles from her home.

48 HOURS: “Jayme Closs Comes Home” will feature the reporting of a team of CBS News journalists who will explore Closs’ story and look at the larger issue of missing children and the extraordinary cases of other children who have come home safely.

Judy Tygard is the executive producer of 48 HOURS.
