Investigators piece together what happened in 3 months of Jayme Closs' captivity

The girl was Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old who had vanished after her parents were found dead more than two months ago, the neighbor told Kasinkas.

Investigators believe Patterson broke into James and Denise Closs' home near Barron on October 15, gunned the couple down and abducted 13-year-old Jayme Closs.

Details of Jayme's three-month captivity have not been released, and Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has not said whether Jayme was sexually assaulted.

"This family has always had this incredible strength, they've always been there for each other long before this happened", she said.

Closs was wearing a zip-up hoodie, leggings and ill-fitting men's sneakers, the Kasinskas said.

Jayme has been staying with an aunt in Barron since she escaped.

As Jayme Closs starts her road to recovery following her kidnapping, investigators are trying to piece together what happened during the almost three months she was in captivity. Jayme wasn't really talking on her own.

"My beloved sister Denice and brother in law Jim can rest a peace, and I keep assuring them Jayme is safe and we will make sure [she is] forever", Smith added in her emotional post.

Investigators believe the goal of the assailant was to kidnap Jayme, though Patterson has no apparent prior connection to the family. We've actually been able to bring her home to Barron County.

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

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.

Closs instead waited for Patterson to leave the secluded cabin where he had been keeping her, then escaped and ran to a nearby road where she was found by Jeanne Nutter, who had been walking her dog.

Kasinkas called 911, and eventually Nutter spoke to the dispatcher. "She is a strong girl and we are blessed to have her back", Trowbridge said.

Her aunt said Jayme slept well. Nutter said she was alarmed that the teen wasn't wearing boots or gloves.

Jayme described Patterson's vehicle to law enforcement officers and they found him soon after, driving the streets, allegedly hunting her. But after being reunited with her family last week, members of the church in Cameron where she grew up are saying a much different prayer on Sunday, one of thanks.

"She's doing exceptionally well for what she went through", Naiberg told The Associated Press by phone.

Sunday night, his public defenders Charles Glynn and Richard Jones met with Patterson and afterward talked with the media.

"She looked thin", Nutter said.
