January 10, 2019 at 8:34 pmFiled Under:Barron, Barron County Sheriff's Office, Chris Fitzgerald, Denise Closs, James Closs, Jayme Closs, Local TV, Wisconsin

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Thirteen-year-old Jayme Closs, who went missing almost three months ago from her Wisconsin home, was located alive Thursday evening, according to the Barron County Sheriff’s Office.

WCCO-TV’s Mary McGuire spoke to Jayme’s aunt Sue on Thursday evening, who said her niece was currently in the hospital. Jayme will then be brought home to Barron to be reunited with her family.


Authorities say a suspect has been taken into custody in connection with the case. The investigation remains active.



Closs disappeared on Oct. 15, 2018, the same day her parents — James, 56, and Denise, 46 — were found shot to death inside their Barron home.

Up until Thursday, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald has said investigators had not received any credible leads in this case, despite thousands of tips.

A 911 call was made from Denise Closs’ cellphone at about 1 a.m. on Oct. 15, with garbled, inaudible audio. Police arrived four minutes later to find her and her husband dead. There was no sign of Jayme inside the home.

Investigators will discuss the case with the media Friday morning at 10 a.m. at the Barron County Sheriff’s office.

This is a developing story. Stay with WCCO.com as more details become available.

Authorities have scheduled a press conference for 10 a.m. on Friday to discuss the case.

"We want to thank the Douglas Co Sheriff’s Department and agencies assisting them tonight.

Police responded to the house after a strange 911 call just before 1 a.m. local time when someone called 911 from Denise Closs' cellphone, and the 911 dispatcher heard "a lot of yelling," according to records from the Barron County Sheriff's Department obtained by ABC News. The dispatcher called the number back but was unable to leave a voicemail.

More attempts were made, but the phone went unanswered. Authorities also tried calling the home's landline but it was disconnected, records show.

By Media Release, AP, WEAU Staff, K.C. Brown, Tyler Mickelson | Posted: Thu 7:58 PM, Jan 10, 2019  |  Updated: Fri 10:35 AM, Jan 11, 2019
         
BARRON COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- The sheriff confirmed that Jayme Closs was found shortly after 4:30 Thursday afternoon. She is currently safe, with law enforcement.


She was taken to a hospital in the Duluth area and held overnight for observation.

The suspect has been identified as 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson, from Gordon.

He's facing multiple charges including kidnapping and first-degree homicide.

Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald made it clear that Jayme was held against her will and escaped before she was found.

We have crews on the story in Barron and Douglas Counties and will have more on our later newscasts and online. Stay with WEAU for the latest on Jayme Closs' safe return.


BARRON COUNTY, Wis. (AP) -- Investigators are expected to explain how they located a Wisconsin teenager missing for three months alive and took a suspect into custody.
WEAU 13 News will be live streaming the event, which is scheduled to start at 10 a.m. in Barron County. To watch that live stream when it happens, click here.


Authorities say 13-year-old Jayme Closs was found Thursday afternoon in the Town of Gordon in Douglas County, Wisconsin. A suspect was apprehended minutes later. Jayme was taken to a hospital for an evaluation.

Jayme had been missing since Oct. 15, when police discovered someone had broken into her family's home in Barron, killed her parents and apparently abducted her. The Town of Gordon, where she was found, is about an hour's drive north of Barron.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Jayme approached a woman walking her dog but authorities have released no details. The Barron County Sheriff's Department has scheduled a news conference Friday morning.


A Wisconsin couple is describing the dramatic moments when a neighbor pounded on their door to say she had stumbled across Jayme Closs, a 13-year-old girl who had been missing nearly three months.
Kristin and Peter Kasinskas say their neighbor had a skinny, dirty girl with matted hair standing next to her. The neighbor shouted, "This is Jayme Closs! Call 911!"

Peter Kasinskas says Jayme was quiet and showed little emotion. He says she told them she didn't know where she was or anything about Gordon, the small town near where she was found.


Jayme's parents were killed in October at the family's home near Barron and Jayme went missing. The place where she was found is a little more than an hour's drive to the north.

Authorities say they have a suspect in custody and planned to release more information Friday.

A town official says a Wisconsin girl who turned up safe after being missing nearly three months was found in a small forested area of cabin-like homes about 6 miles east of the small Town of Gordon.

Jayme Closs was found Thursday afternoon in northwestern Wisconsin, about 65 miles north of where her parents were shot to death and Jayme vanished from their home in October.

Denny Kline, board chairman in the Town of Gordon, says he first learned Jayme was found while listening to a police scanner, which he has for work. He says he heard Jayme was walking down the road and someone stopped near her.

Kline says he heard on the scanner that Jayme told them who she was, and they brought her to their home.

The Associated Press was not able to verify Kline's account with authorities late Thursday.

"I am very pleased to announce that Jayme Closs was located late this afternoon within Douglas County. I cannot release anymore details at this time as the investigation is ongoing. Great job to the members of the DGSO who helped in locating Jayme and the citizen who phoned in the information."


DOUGLAS COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) --The Douglas County Sheriff's Office said Closs was located in The Town of Gordon, which is in the far southern part of the county, at 4:43 p.m. A suspect was arrested at 4:54 p.m., also in Gordon. Officials did not release any other information about how Closs was found.

BARRON COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- The cousin of a 13-year-old Wisconsin girl who was missing almost three months before being found safe Thursday is thanking law enforcement and the community for support.
Lacey Naiberg posted on Facebook after the Barron County sheriff reported that Jayme Closs had been found. Jayme went missing in October after her parents were killed at the family home in northern Wisconsin.

Naiberg wrote "there are no words to describe" the feeling of having so many people come together to help. She asks people to continue to pray for "Jayme's well-being and our families healing."

Authorities say a suspect is in custody, but say they won't release any more information ahead of a news conference Friday.

Stay with WEAU for more information as this story develops.

We will have a live report from Barron County during WEAU 13 News at 10 p.m.

WEAU will also live stream Friday's news conference at 10 a.m. on WEAU and weau.com.


SHERIFF CHRIS FITZGERALD:
BARRON COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) -- Jayme Closs has been located.

On Thursday evening the Barron County Sheriff’s Department was notified by the Douglas CO WI Sheriff’s Department that they had located Jayme Closs alive.

Shortly after this, a suspect was taken into custody in regards to this case. We do not any other details at this time as this is a very fluid and active investigation. We will not be answering any questions or taking calls on this tonight.

We are planning a press briefing approximately 10 am tomorrow at the Sheriff’s Department in Barron. We are receiving support from the FBI and WI DCI agents as this investigation continues.

We want to thank the Douglas Co Sheriff’s Department and agencies assisting them tonight. We also want to thank all the Law Enforcement agencies across the state and county that have assisted us in this case. We also could not have endured this case without the support of the public and I want to thank them for all the support and help.

Finally, we want to especially thank the family for their support and patience while this case was ongoing. We promised to bring Jayme home and tonight we get to fulfill that promise. From the bottom of my heart THANK YOU!

This case has been very trying on the family so please respect their privacy and we reunite them later tonight.

Authorities on Friday identified Jake Thomas Patterson as the only suspect in the Jayme Closs kidnapping. He is also the suspect in the murder of Closs's parents — James, 56, and Denise, 46.

Patterson is 21 years old. Closs escaped from a home where Patterson lived in the 14100 block of South Eau Claire Acres Circle, near the town of Gordon.

Here's what we know about the suspect so far:

Where is he now
Patterson is in custody in Barron County. He is being held pending charges of first degree murder and kidnapping. Barron County District Attorney Brain Wright said at a Friday morning press conference that charges are not expected to be filed until next week.

Patterson has no known previous criminal record.

How did police find him
Jayme Closs approached Jeanne Nutter who was walking her dog Thursday. Nutter quickly took Closs to a neighbor's home, where they called police.

The Douglas County Sheriff's department responded. Using a description of his vehicle, they were able to pull over and arrest Patterson Thursday night. 

There are no other suspects.

Where did he grow up
The cabin where Patterson held Closs is in an enclave called Eau Claire Acres in the town of Gordon in Douglas County.

Neighbor Daphne Ronning said the Patterson family moved to the house 15 years ago and that Jake and his brother grew up there. Both attended Northwood School in Minong. Patterson's parents moved to another home, but Jake Patterson and his brother continued to use the Eau Claire Acres home.

Gordon is home to about 645 people in a heavily forested region where logging is the top industry. Eau Claires Acres, where Closs was found, is about six miles east of the town. The area is described as a neighborhood with cabin-like homes. The region is popular for tourists who rent or own cabins. During winter, the area is less populated.

Did he have a job
Patterson was unemployed.

How did he know Jayme Closs or her family

Police said his intention was to target Jayme Closs, not her parents. At a press conference Friday, police said they have no evidence that Patterson communicated with Jayme Closs via social media.
