Family members describe moment they discovered Jayme Closs was safe

Jake Thomas Patterson

Jayme vanished that day.

At St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Barron, Mary Haas says the reappearance of Jayme Closs is "a miracle and it's wonderful".

Although Jayme had disappeared, investigators said they initially "keyed in" on the parents because the daughter was an innocent child who they didn't believe could be targeted. "It was great to know she was next to me all night". Investigators are trying to determine whether he worked at another job in the area.

Nutter explained that she didn't want to go into her cabin because she's not there all the time, and the suspect, 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson, might think to stop there to look for Jayme if he saw Nutter's vehicle.

Shortly before 1 a.m. that night, 911 dispatchers got a call during which they could hear yelling, but no one talked to the dispatcher.

She took Closs to a nearby home where the residents, Kristin and Peter Kasinskas, called 991.

The two women hovered around Jayme as they waited for the police to arrive.

For months, thousands of people joined search parties as investigators received thousands of tips. And her alleged kidnaper was still out there, likely hunting for her.

After murdering both her parents it is believed Mr Patterson then abducted Jayme and took her to his home about 120km away in Gordon. Her dog, Henry, was antsy and wanted to go for a walk. Nutter said she was alarmed that the teen wasn't wearing boots or gloves.

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

Fearful the kidnapper may be looking for Jayme, she told her partner to get a gun as he called 911. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".

Naiberg said the family recorded video of her parents' funeral for her with hopes that it might give her a bit of closure.

"It was a privilege to have a little part in helping get her home", she said. Officers arrested 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson minutes later based on Jayme's description of his vehicle.

Twenty-one-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson is expected to appear in Barron County Circuit Court on Monday afternoon, after prosecutors formally charge him with intentional homicide and kidnapping.

Smith shared a heartfelt image of Jayme on Facebook Saturday, showing the young girl smiling and cuddling with her dogs. "What a great feeling to have her home".

Wearing an oversized shirt and shoes that were too big for her, she described a girl who seemed like she'd grabbed at whatever she could to make her escape, trying to survive as she ran through the icy wilderness.

"Now it's about getting him the harshest sentence possible", Jayme's aunt Kelly Engelhart said.
