The subject of a nationwide search since her parents were found murdered in their home in rural Wisconsin in October, Closs made a seemingly miraculous escape Thursday afternoon, seeking help from a neighbor who alerted authorities.

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.

Within minutes, Patterson was pulled over and jailed on kidnapping and homicide charges for what authorities said was his meticulously planned shotgun attack at the girl's home in October.

"There is a reunification process in place going on right now that includes medical mental evaluation, questioning by detectives and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, and then reunification with family". On Friday, Fitzgerald said it is believed Patterson was out looking for Jayme when law enforcement came into contact with him.

Sheriff Fitzgerald said in November that he kept similar cases in the back of his mind as he worked to find Jayme, including the abduction of Elizabeth Smart, who was taken from her Salt Lake City home in 2002, when she was 14 years old.

Another aunt, Sue Naiberg Allard, posted that Jayme got "the most awaited hug ever" when she returned home. "(Jayme) don't know him from Adam. (But) he knew what he was doing. We don't know if he was stalking her or what. "Did he see her somewhere?"

Months later, Jayme reappeared in the sparsely-populated town of Gordon, about 70 miles (113km) north of her hometown. The discovery ended an all-out search that gripped the state, with many people fearing the worst the longer she was missing.

"My legs started to shake".

Jayme Closs is with her aunt after her rescue on Thursday (Jan 10) and has been reunited with the rest of her family and her dog, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters.

The barricades continue to block access to the road Jayme ran down to escape from the man who held her captive for 88 days.

"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, 'he killed my parents and took me,"' said another neighbour, Kristin Kasinskas.

Boeing said last month the partnership was expected to be neutral to its earnings per share in 2020 and accretive thereafter. Embraer would keep consent rights for some decisions, such as the transfer of operations from Brazil.

He added: 'She did not talk about why or how.

"I hope that she's in good shape", the Mayor said.

The Kasinskas said Jayme's emotions were "pretty flat" while they waited for the police and she refused offers of food and water. "I was in child protection [services], so I believe my CPS personality just turned on", Nutter told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel on Friday.

The Closs' door had been shot open; Patterson had shaved his head so as not to leave hair behind, Fitzgerald said.

Authorities believe Patterson went to the Closs home intending to kidnap Jayme.

Jayme Closs was found alive by the suspect's neighbours on Thursday.

Ms Nutter said Jayme was skinny, dirty and wearing shoes too large for her feet.

Police said they sent three teams to tell family members at various locations that she had been found, including one group that was attending a basketball game. He said she was largely silent. James Kuffel, the township's lone constable, said he knows nearly everyone in the area but has never encountered the Pattersons.

Despite Erik Patterson's criminal record, few across the township seem to have heard of his family.

Patterson worked for one day in 2016 at the same Jennie-O turkey plant in Barron as Jayme's parents, Jennie-O Turkey Store President Steve Lykken said.

Patterson graduated in 2015 from Northwood High School in nearby Minong, a single building that houses pre-kindergarten through 12th grade. "She did not go into detail about how she got out of the house or anything like that". "I think she was doing OK despite the circumstances", she said.
