Missing teen Jayme Closs found alive

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

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

Fitzgerald said 13-year-old Jayme Closs was able to escape on Thursday from her captor, who he identified as 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson.

Both the woman who found Jayme and the residents of the nearby home recognized her, Fitzgerald said.

CBS Minnesota spoke with Jayme's aunt Sue on Thursday evening who said her niece was now at the hospital.

Who killed JonBenet Ramsey, what did her autopsy report say and when did she die? "I've been in the dumpster for three months".

"There was rumors earlier today, and I prayed and prayed, and they come to not be true", Allard told CNN affiliate WCCO reporter Mary McGuire. "I knew it was her the second she walked in the door". WDIO-TV plans to carry the news conference live at about 10 a.m. Gillian Drummond, a spokeswoman for the Wisconsin Department of Justice, and Leonard Peace, a spokesman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Wisconsin, declined to comment.

Douglas County deputies later located a vehicle matching description of the suspect's auto provided by Closs, pulled Patterson over and arrested him.

Jayme Closs vanished after her parents, James, 56, and Denise, 46, were shot dead inside their home in Barron County, near Minneapolis, in mid-October some three months ago. Deputies say shortly after, a suspect was taken into custody.

In a case that inspired numerous searches and thousands of public tips, it was 13-year-old Jayme who helped herself to freedom Thursday afternoon. Several intensive searches took place in the area, but none yielded any clues, and for weeks Fitzgerald has been saying that authorities have no new leads. Investigators said they believed Jayme was at home during the shooting.

"I have a gut feeling [Jayme's] still alive".

"I'm going to hug her. Squeeze her", Naiberg said, his voice cracking. The sheriff's department in Douglas County told Barron County Closs was located.

"There was a lot of discouragement because this took quite a while to play out", Fladten said. "It's wonderful, 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. We promised to bring Jayme home and tonight we get to fulfill that promise.

'It's like taking a big black cloud in the sky and getting rid of it and the sun comes out again'. "They offered her food and water but she declined".

"We are just happy everyone kept praying and didn't give up hope like we didn't", Smith said. "She's no doubt been through just a awful ordeal".
