Missing teen whose parents were shot is found alive, suspect in custody

The suspect was identified by authorities Friday as Jake Thomas Patterson of Gordon, Wisconsin, the same town where Jayme was found alive the day before by a woman walking her dog.

The woman began knocking on a neighbour's door shouting: "This is Jayme Closs, call 911!"

Patterson went to Jayme's house with the intention of abducting her, authorities said.

Late on Thursday, Barron County sheriff Chris Fitzgerald announced that Jayme had been found in Gordon, but he had few other details.

Without getting specific, authorities said on Friday that James Thomas Patterson took various steps to avoid detection by law enforcement and the public after the October 15 murders.

Jayme was skinny and dirty, wearing shoes too big for her feet, but appeared outwardly OK when she was discovered Thursday afternoon near the small town of Gordon, the neighbors said.

"I have no doubt Jayme and her family will forever appreciate the efforts and prayers of the many thousands of people who contributed and kept them in their thoughts and prayers!" Douglas County Sheriff Thomas Dalbec said Patterson was jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges.

Since Jayme's disappearance almost three months ago, scores of people in Wisconsin and Minnesota helped authorities look for her.

"She saw this girl screaming 'help me, help me, '" Kasinskas told the station of his neighbor. She has been reunited with her family and is undergoing questioning by authorities.

In December, the Barron County Clerk of Courts Office dedicated its Christmas tree to Jayme. Kasinskas says she recognized the name but didn't know the person.

"I was devastated, but now, for this to be true, and Jayme, I can not wait to give her a hug".

The Star Tribune said Closs's aunt Sue Allard sobbed upon hearing news that the teen had been found.

Messer, who has promised a more serialized season with "formidable villains," has a pod deal with CBS, meaning that she will continue to create original dramas with the network.

We are planning a press briefing approximately 10 am tomorrow at the Sheriff's Department in Barron. "It's the news we've been waiting on for three months". "I knew it was her the second she walked in the door". Officials determined Closs was inside the home when her parents were murdered, but then the trail went cold.

Jayme escaped from the suspect's home, authorities said, but the circumstances in which she did so were not released. Following a nationwide search, the girl managed to flee from a remote cabin where she was being held.

Jayme went missing on October 15, when authorities found her parents shot to death at the family's home near Barron, a town about 75 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

More than 2,000 volunteers showed up to help with two grid searches around Barron in October.

Investigators received more than 3,500 tips during that time, Fitzgerald said.

The town's mayor Ron Fladten said the news was a "great result" and that he had been "praying daily" for the safe return of Jayme. "I just can't wait". "It's unbelievable, the will of that 13-year-old girl to survive and escape - and that comes from the hopes and the prayers of this community", he shared. "I just can't wait".
