Abducted Wisconsin Teen Jayme Closs Was Found By Retired Social Worker

Jayme Closs 13 managed to escape a remote cabin where she had been held against her will after her parents were killed

The man suspected of kidnapping a northwestern Wisconsin teenager and killing her parents with a shotgun almost three months ago appears to have led an unremarkable existence, blending into the state's vast north woods.

Nutter said, "This is Jayme Closs!". Patterson took such measures as shaving his head beforehand to avoid leaving evidence at the scene, the sheriff said.

Jake Thomas Patterson was arrested on two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of kidnapping, police said on Friday.

There's no evidence Patterson knew the Closses or had previous contact with them, the sheriff said.

Thousands of volunteers and hundreds of law enforcement officers had been searching around the clock for her after her parents were found shot dead in their home, the front door open and the girl gone.

Patterson was not at home when Jayme escaped, the sheriff added.

Jayme's aunt, Jen Smith, said on Saturday on ABC's Good Morning America that when she heard that her niece had been found alive, "I just cried lots of happy tears".

Elizabeth Smart says she has followed the case since Closs disappeared in October.

Often times in the wake of tragedy, bogus fundraisers pop-up on social media by scammers looking to take advantage of the situation.

When they arrived, Kasinskas fed Jayme while they waited around half an hour for the police to arrive, Kasinskas told MPR.

After Jayme confirmed her identity to the couple, she explained to them that she escaped from her kidnapper's home nearby and was afraid that he may come looking for her.

About three years ago, Patterson worked at the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron - where Jayme's parents were employed - and then quit, saying he was moving, company President Steve Lykken said.

She told the Associated Press that the 13-year-old had shouted "please help me, I don't know where I am, I'm lost".

On Thursday, Jayme escaped the rural home where she was being held.

The grandfather of a Wisconsin teen abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead says the suspect had no connection with the family.

Patterson, who was unemployed, has no criminal record, the Barron county sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said.

'We did get a tip on a sibling that has some criminal record.

The National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children said it was "overjoyed" that Closs was found alive.

Closs' grandfather Robert Naiberg said on Saturday that the only thing the family knows for sure is no one knew Patterson. The FBI offered a cash reward for information on her whereabouts, and authorities urged hunters in the area to be on the lookout for clues. Charles Glynn and Richard Jones said in a statement that they await Patterson's initial court appearance and the filing of charges against him on Monday.

Jayme was hospitalized, and later released and reunited with her relatives and dog, Molly, in Barron.

"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, "he killed my parents and took me", said another neighbour, Kristin Kasinskas. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".

Jeanne recalled: 'She just yelled, "Please help me!"

"The million-dollar question is why", Fitzgerald said Saturday.

Her aunt said Jayme slept well.
