Family members describe moment they discovered Jayme Closs was safe

Jake Thomas Patterson

For the past couple of months the community of Barron and beyond has been praying for a safe return of 13-year-old Jayme Closs.

The circumstances of the transfer weren't clear.

The girl was missing for almost three months. Jake Allard, a cousin who was present for the joyful reunion, said Jayme couldn't stop smiling when she arrived home with her aunt, Jennifer Smith.

The secluded Gordon home where Patterson held Closs captive.

He is believed to have been unemployed and didn't attend any of the local businesses with enough frequency for anyone to recognise him.

Property records show their father, Patrick Patterson, was the owner of the home until days after Closs' abduction, when it became property of the bank. It is unclear how he made a living. She approached a woman walking a dog and asked for her help.

Her aunt said Jayme slept well.

It came as photographs emerged of the rural house in Wisconsin where she was held prisoner. Nutter said Jayme did not have a coat or gloves.

"If the dad was coming around, he would have had to have known the girl was there", a neighor added.

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez's campaign paid $1500 fine to NY state
Vocal critics of the approach say it's an expensive clone of socialized medicine systems found in Canada, Scandinavia and elsewhere.

Jayme described Patterson's auto to law enforcement officers and they found him soon after, driving the streets, allegedly hunting her.

"I've been a social worker since 1976", she said. "There is only one road, and I didn't want to drag her through the woods".

"Now they know their Jayme, [who] was their whole world, is home with family".

He has no criminal history in Wisconsin. Her grandfather, Robert Naiberg, told The Associated Press that Jayme told Federal Bureau of Investigation agents she doesn't know Patterson at all.

Charging documents in Wisconsin typically contain at least a partial narrative of what happened at a crime scene, as prosecutors try to prove there's probable cause to support the allegations.

But a closer look by The Post provides potential details about the living conditions Closs was forced to endure while in captivity since October, when alleged abductor Jake Patterson, 21, shot her parents and snatched her from her home some 80 miles away.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters on Friday that Patterson took measures to avoid leaving evidence at the Closs family's home, including shaving his head before breaking in. But Patterson's attorneys, public defenders Charles Glynn and Richard Jones, have been lauded for taking high-profile cases with a special emphasis on sexually violent people, according to a state public defender office news release from February 2018.

When deputies arrested him, he was out looking for Jayme, Fitzgerald said.
