Area Leading To Where Jayme Closs Escaped Now Open

Churchgoers in a small northwestern Wisconsin town say their prayers were answered by the safe return of a 13-year-old girl almost three months after authorities say she was abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

The grandfather of a 13-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl says she's in "exceptionally good spirits" after being found almost three months after authorities say she was kidnapped during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

Jayme Closs, 13, went missing after her parents were found dead in their home.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters on Friday that Patterson took measures to avoid leaving evidence at the Closs family's home, including shaving his head before breaking in.

The girl was missing for almost three months.

Neighbors say the Patterson boys terrorized the neighborhood by breaking into cabins while they were empty in the winter. He is alleged to have broken into her home in Barron, Wisconsin, before murdering her parents and abducting her.

Her church family wants to make sure she knows she has support in the coming days, weeks, months and even years ahead. "Her aunts were nearly second moms", said Halvorson.

The 21-year-old is accused of keeping the young girl captive for the next 88 days. They say he then gunned the couple down and made off with their 13-year-old daughter, Jayme.


During the service they took a moment to pray for Jayme and her family and also to thank all of those who searched endlessly for her since October.

What's unclear, however, is how and why Patterson - from the remote community of Gordon, two counties from Barron - allegedly chose Jayme for kidnapping.

Almost three years ago, Patterson worked for one day at the same meat products facility where Jayme's parents worked - the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron.

Authorities have said they don't believe Patterson crossed paths with Jayme's parents there.

"Jayme had a pretty good night sleep", she wrote, "It was great to know she was next to me all night, what a great feeling to have her home". "She is a strong girl and we are blessed to have her back", Trowbridge said. 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.

Jayme was alone, without a coat or gloves in the Midwestern chill, Nutter said.

"She's doing exceptionally well for what she went through", Naiberg told The Associated Press by phone. But Patterson's attorneys, public defenders Charles Glynn and Richard Jones, have been lauded for taking high-profile cases with a special emphasis on sexually violent people, according to a state public defender office news release from February 2018.

"She looked thin", Nutter said.
