13 Comments on Jayme Closs Found…Alive

  1. There’s going to be a news conference at 10:00 am this morning with some details. I expect them not to say much since it’s not only a homicide case but a kidnapping too.

    “Jayme Closs, 13, was rescued in Eau Claire Acres, a subdivision dotted with cabins on the outskirts of Gordon, Wisconsin. An unnamed suspect was in custody, the Barron County Sheriff’s Department said. The break in the disturbing case came in the late afternoon as social worker Jeanne Nutter was walking her dog near the cabin she owns with her husband Forrest, a retired police officer.”

    BARRON, Wis. (AP) — The Latest on a Wisconsin teenager who was found alive three months after disappearing following her parents’ deaths (all times local):

    10 a.m.

    Authorities have identified the suspect in the abduction of 13-year-old Jayme Closs and killing of her parents as 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson of Gibson.

    Investigators say they believe Patterson killed James and Denise Closs because he wanted to abduct their teen daughter.

    The woman who was the first to encounter a missing Wisconsin girl who vanished after her parents were killed says the teen called out to her for help, said she was lost and grabbed onto her before telling her who she was .

    Jeanne Nutter tells The Associated Press her many years as a social worker in child protection helped her keep Jayme Closs calm as they sought help.

    Closs is the 13-year-old girl who vanished Oct. 15 after her parents were fatally shot at their home about 60 miles to the south in Douglas County.

    Nutter says Jayme had walked away from a cabin not far from her place where she had been held. Nutter says her goal was to get Jayme to a safe place where the police could be called, so they went to a neighbor’s house.

    9 a.m.

    Elizabeth Smart says it is a “miracle” that a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl missing for nearly three months has been found safe .

    Smart was 14 when she was abducted from her Salt Lake City home in 2002. She was rescued nine months later.

    Jayme Closs disappeared in October after her parents were killed inside their home in Barron, Wisconsin. She was found Thursday in a town about an hour’s drive away after approaching a woman walking her dog, saying she’d been held against her will.

    Smart posted Friday on her Instagram account that she was thrilled Jayme had been found. Smart says that while the country celebrates this “happy occasion,” the girl’s family should be given “space and privacy on their road to finding a new sense of normal and moving forward.”

    Smart says “whatever other details may surface, the most important will still remain that she is alive.”

  3. mgosh! It seems we need more social workers on the streets!
