'Jayme is safe and we will make sure forever,' family says

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

Investigators say 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson shot James and Denise Closs to death in their home near Barron on October 15 and took their daughter, 13-year old Jayme Closs.

The grandfather of Jayme Closs, who authorities say was abducted during a home invasion that left her parents dead said on Saturday that the family has no connection to the suspect and doesn't understand why he targeted her, deepening a mystery that has captivated the United States for months.

It was awesome. The stress, the relief - it was awesome, " Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said, describing the moment he learned Jayme had been found.

Thirteen-year-old Jayme Closs was found Thursday afternoon.

Kasinskas said she taught Patterson science in middle school, but added: "I don't really remember a ton about him". "Why he picked her is the million dollar question we're still trying to determine".

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, of Gordon, Wisconsin, was arrested soon thereafter, and charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide in the killings of Jayme's parents and one count of kidnapping. We believe the suspect was out looking for her when law enforcement made contact with him. Their bodies were discovered on Oct 15.

Investigators have said Patterson's goal was to kidnap Jayme, but he appears to have no connection to the family.

According to Douglas County Sheriff Tom Dalbec, Gordon police located and arrested Mr Patterson thanks to a description of his vehicle that Jayme provided.

More than 200 law enforcement officials were on the ground day and night following Closs' disappearance, sifting through thousands of tips but finding little to go on.

Tremblay said she and her administration's hope is that Closs can have a "beautiful childhood". "She did not go into detail about how she got out of the house or anything like that".

One aunt, Jennifer Smith, posted on Facebook Saturday that it was great to know Jayme was next to her all night and that it was a "great feeling to have her home".

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".

He said a search warrant is now being served on the Gordon home and authorities are also investigating several cars that belong to Patterson, who he said has "zero" criminal history.

Attempts to reach Patterson's relatives and neighbors on Friday were unsuccessful. The Journal Sentinel reported Saturday that he wrote in a school yearbook about his plan to join the U.S. Marine Corps following graduation, but The Associated Press has been unable to confirm if he followed through. But the sheriff said it did not appear Patterson interacted with the couple.

The small town of Gordon is about 40 miles (64km) south of Lake Superior and about 65 miles north of Jayme's hometown of Barron.

According to a neighbor, Patterson's parents moved away but the two sons continued to use the home.

Officials reported Jayme missing on October 15 when deputies discovered the bodies of her parents in their Wisconsin home. He graduated in 2015.

Closs is not the first kidnapping victim to survive months in captivity.

Elizabeth Smart, who was held captive for nine months as a teenager after her 2002 abduction in Utah, posted a photo of Closs on Instagram, praising the "miracle" that she had been found.
