Woman says missing Wisconsin girl called out to her for help

Missing teen whose parents were shot is found alive, suspect in custody

Closs, who had been missing since the murder of her parents last October, was found alive barely an hour's drive away, by a woman who stumbled across the 13-year-old girl and pounded on her neighbors' door shouting: "This is Jayme Closs!".

Kasinskas said Jayme told her she had been held in the Gordon area - near Kasinskas' home - by someone who killed her parents on the night she disappeared.

Fitzgerald said Patterson apparently kept Jayme captive at the remote home in Gordon before she was able to escape.

The Barron County Sheriff's Department said on its Facebook page that Jayme Closs has been located and that a suspect was taken into custody.

Another of Jayme's aunts, Jennifer Smith, pleaded with those who knew where the girl was to contact the sheriff's department.

Fuhrman said that while Patterson has no criminal record, he believes he has committed other crimes or has a mental defect.

"She saw this girl screaming 'help me, help me, '" Kasinskas told the station of his neighbor. Police discovered someone had broken into her family's home in Barron, killed her parents and apparently abducted her.

In December, the Barron County Clerk of Courts Office dedicated its Christmas tree to Jayme.

"He seemed like a quiet kid", she said. I can't wait to get my arms around her.

The Town of Gordon is home to about 645 people.

Jayme's aunt, Sue Allard, said her niece was in the hospital Thursday night. A news conference was planned Friday in Barron, where Jayme's family lived.

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

Closs vanished on October 15, 2018.

Police did not know what happened or the motive for the killings, and a murder weapon was not recovered, according to USA media reports at the time.

An initial ground search yielded no clues, but a second ground search by more than 2,000 people resulted in several items of interest to investigators, The Associated Press reports.

Elizabeth Smart, rescued nine months after being abducted while a teen from her Salt Lake City home in 2002, called the result "a miracle". She declined food but otherwise appeared okay.

"Today we can finally say, Jayme Closs is home", a joyful Justin Tolomeo, special agent in charge of Milwaukee division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, said Friday at a press conference in Barron, Wisconsin. "It's awesome, the will of that 13-year-old girl to survive and escape - and that comes from the hopes and the prayers of this community", he shared.

Jayme was reported missing on October 15, after her parents were found fatally shot in their home near Barron, about an hour's drive south of Gordon.

"There's some prior history here somewhere, and I'm sure they're working on that right now", Fuhrman said. "I just can't wait".
