Missing 13-year-old Jayme Closs found alive in Wisconsin

"And I just shut myself totally down. I thought today was going to be the day, and then I find out two hours later that she’s found and I just cannot believe this."

Two hours later was just "now"?

    No, it was in the past, she the talker just switched to so-called narrative present. We sometimes use the present tense to speak of past events. Jan 11, 2019 at 5:53
