Girl has no link to kidnapper: Grandfather

Jayme Closs, who went missing in October has been found alive

"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, 'he killed my parents and took me,"' said another neighbour, Kristin Kasinskas. "She did not talk about why or how".

Both the woman and the neighbor recognized the teen immediately on Thursday due to the enormous public campaign following her disappearance, Fitzgerald said.

Details of what happened in the almost three months since the girl vanished remain unclear, but Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said Patterson "took many proactive steps to hide his identity from law enforcement and the general public".

"I told Jayme, 'I am so happy to see you, ' that was all I could think to say to her", Peter Kasinskas said. "Believe me, so are we".

Police haven't identified a motive for his alleged crimes, and said he had no social media contact with Jayme or her family. "We don't know if he's after us, '" Kasinskas said.

Jayme's ordeal began on October 15, when a 911 hangup call was placed from her home and a dispatcher reported hearing people yelling in the background.

Barron Mayor Ron Fladten said he hadn't heard any details about Jayme's discovery but was overjoyed at learning she is alive. Court records don't list an attorney for Patterson and The Associated Press was unable to reach family members to speak on his behalf.

Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg reiterated Saturday that the family had no connection with Patterson and didn't know him.

She said, 'I'm Jayme, ' the woman told CNN affiliate WCCO.

James and Denise Closs were found shot dead on October 15 in the family's home.

"The suspect had specific intentions to kidnap Jayme and went to great lengths to prepare to take her", said Fitzgerald.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says Patterson extensively plotted the attack to the point where he shaved his head to avoid leaving forensic evidence behind. A shotgun was recovered from the home where Jayme was believed held, according to Fitzgerald.

Missing Jayme Closs, whose parents were murdered, just found alive
Fitzgerald said authorities in Douglas County, about 112 kilometres north of Barron County, located the girl. Smith told KSTP the family wants justice for her sister and brother-in-law who were murdered.

Ownership of that rural cabin was transferred to a credit union by Patterson's father shortly after Jayme was kidnapped. Patterson quit, saying he was moving from the area, Lykken said.

He had no criminal record, according to the sheriff.

Kasinskas said that three officers initially arrived at her home. "I don't recall anything that would have explained this, by any means".

The neighbour had been walking her dog in the area, a subdivision known as Eau Claire Acres, when a teenage girl came up to her in the cold and asked for help. "I just can't wait".

The girl told Jeanne Nutter, "I'm lost, and I don't know where I am, and I need help".

If she had not taken that chance, some believe she would still be missing.

"He seemed like a quiet kid, " she said.

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, who allegedly killed two people and held their daughter captive for three months.

Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted numerous searches in the effort to find Jayme.

After the killings, Jayme was taken to a remote property near the small town of Gordon and is in the process of telling police how she managed to escape. "God has answered those prayers".

"Praise the Lord", she said. Girls ages 12 to 17 are most commonly abducted.

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