A timeline of events in the Jayme Closs disappearance case

Missing teen whose parents were shot is found alive, suspect in custody

Barron County authorities believe Jayme was likely abducted after she disappeared, and have maintained they were confident she was alive for the time she was missing.

A 13-year-old girl who went missing when her parents were shot dead in their home three months ago has been found alive after she escaped and asked a dog walker for help.

October 17, 2018 - Authorities announce that investigators believe Jayme was in her family's home when her parents were fatally shot.

A woman said she was walking her dog along a rural road when a disheveled teenage girl called out to her for help, quickly grabbed her and told her she was lost.

"A suspect was taken into custody", said Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald.

The vehicle was pulled over and Patterson was taken into custody. "The subject planned his actions and took many proactive steps to hide his identity from law enforcement and the general public".

Fitzgerald said the girl approached a woman who was walking her dog - and provided a description of a auto in the area, leading to Patterson's arrest.

The suspect has not been identified.

Police arrived four minutes after the call was placed to find the home's front door kicked in. It's unclear if the teen knew her alleged captor before she went missing.

"We kind of just talked with her, nothing too specific about what was happening", Kasinskas said.

"Praise the Lord", she said. "I don't recall anything that would have explained this, by any means".

Patterson graduated from the Northwood School, a K-12 school in Minong, Wisc., in 2015, district administrator Jean Serum told CBS News.

"Prayers from our family, we got prayers from everybody", said Steven Naiberg, the teen's uncle.

Barron Mayor Ron Fladten said Thursday night he was overjoyed at learning she is alive. Patterson, who police said is unemployed, is believed to have ties to Barron County.

Both the woman and the neighbour recognised Jayme from the massive publicity the case has drawn, authorities said.

The town of Gordon was not on authorities' radar in the search for Jayme, he said.

Naiberg said his daughter called him with the news, saying Jayme reported having been held by "a guy in the woods" but was able to escape.

Details of the case indicated that the teenager had been snatched minutes after an intruder came into the house and murdered her parents, damaging little else in the family home. Wright plans to have a criminal complaint filed against Patterson by next week, he said.

Since Jayme's disappearance almost three months ago, scores of people in Wisconsin and Minnesota helped authorities look for her.
