After Jayme Closs' safe return, question is: Why?

Police are searching for 13-year-old Jayme Closs

The girl's disappearance in October made national news and stunned her hometown of Barron, Wisconsin, population 3,400, about 144km east of Minneapolis and sparked massive searches with 1,500 volunteers scouring woods and fields in suburban Minneapolis.

"My legs started to shake".

Jayme has since reunited with her aunt and other relatives, authorities stated.

Jayme Closs, 13, has told authorities since her escape on Thursday that she was held captive at that same remote woodland cabin after her abduction in October from her family home in Barron.

Jayme told the woman she had escaped from a cabin where she was being held, not far from Ms Nutter's home.

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

Smart, a child safety activist who was abducted from her Salt Lake City home in 2002, called Jayme "brave, strong and powerful" in an Instagram post this week.

"Jayme had a pretty good night sleep it was great to know she was next to me all night what a great feeling to have her home". They said there is nothing to indicate that he knew or had contact with the family before the incident, and said they do not know how he came to fixate on Jayme.

"I know all of you are searching for the answer why any of this happened", Fitzgerald said.

"He seemed like a quiet kid", she said.

"I hope we may all continue to support and embrace Jayme as she reclaims her life and comes to terms with the reality of her situation", the 31-year-old wrote. Owner Karen Beeler said she's run the place for 22 years and had never heard of the family before Jake Patterson was arrested.

Patterson was scheduled for an initial court appearance Monday.

Patterson, who was unemployed, remained largely an enigma Saturday.

"He didn't know Jayme, he didn't know Denise or Jim", Naiberg said. "She said she did not know him".

Investigators believe Jayme was at the home when her parents were killed, and that Patterson abducted her from there, Fitzgerald said.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald says Patterson extensively plotted the attack to the point where he shaved his head to avoid leaving forensic evidence behind. A shotgun was recovered from the home where Jayme was believed held, according to Fitzgerald. Property records show that the cabin belonged to Patterson's father.

"Jayme is the hero in this case". Patterson quit, saying he was moving from the area, Lykken said.

Barron County district attorney Brian Right said he planned to file a criminal complaint against Mr Patterson next week.

He may have worked at another business in Barron but that hasn't been confirmed, the sheriff said.

Patterson graduated in 2015 from Northwood High School in nearby Minong, a single building that houses pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

"He was like 11, 12 when I would have had him as a student", Kristin Kasinkas said. "I think she was doing OK despite the circumstances", she said. "I don't recall anything that would have explained this, by any means".

On 10 January, the Douglas County Sheriff's Office announced Jayme had been found alive.

She approached a woman who was walking her dog for help. I don't know where I am.

The 66-year-old took the teen to a neighbor´s home, where they called police. The discovery ended an all-out search that gripped the state, with many people fearing the worst.
