  • Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said that Jayme Closs has been reunited with the rest of her family

Her family have vowed to make her feel safe again and acknowledge her recovery will take time. We had too much love and support around us for us to give up, ' her aunt said.

Kate Raddatz spoke with a victim specialist at the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center to find out why Jayme's case is so meaningful.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said investigators are trying to figure out what happened to Jayme during her captivity. "Jayme was the champion that finally said enough is enough", Fitzgerald said.

"Jayme is an example of why we never lose hope and never stop searching", the organisation said on Facebook. Charles Glynn and Richard Jones said in a statement that they await Patterson's initial court appearance and the filing of charges against him on Monday.

"I can tell you that the subject planned his actions and took many proactive steps to hide his identity from law enforcement and the general public", he said.

"She is doing as well as circumstances will allow", Fitzgerald said.

They believe she was targeted by Patterson, but are still investigating any possible links between him and the Closs family.

The 13-year-old was missing when police arrived, leading to an intense manhunt that ended when she was found alive Thursday about 70 miles from her home.

Elizabeth Smart posted on Instagram after Closs was found calling her courageous, strong and a powerful survivor. I don't know where I am! "And to chase after that is, it's, I mean, she'll never go back to that".

The two went to the home of Peter and Kristin Kasinskas, who called 911.

Closs vanished October 15 after her parents were gunned down inside their home in Barron County, located about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

The investigation suggested that the suspect didn't know any family members at the home, nor had he been in touch with them, but allegedly went there with the objective of kidnapping the teen, Fitzgerald said.

The ENT specialist revealed it is important to treat such symptoms quickly, adding that she expects Chen to make a full recovery. It is believed that there are many people who now live with it, but because it is hard to diagnose, they may be unaware of it.

What's unclear, however, is how and why Patterson - from the remote community of Gordon two counties from Barron - allegedly chose Jayme for kidnapping.

Patterson is unemployed, although worked for one day at the Jennie-O Turkey Store in Barron, where the Closs' worked for 27 years. It is about a one-hour, 50-minute drive from Minneapolis, and is about 50 minutes from Eau Claire, Wisconsin. But the sheriff said it did not appear Patterson interacted with the couple.

But the sheriff has also said there's no evidence that Patterson knew the Closses or had previous contact with them.

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

He was being held in the Barron County jail, and it was not yet clear whether he had a lawyer.

Jayme was evaluated at a hospital after she was found and has since been released.

Jayme approached Nutter around 4 p.m. Thursday and asked for help.

Jeanne Nutter was walking her dog near the cabin she owns with her husband on 10 January when she encountered Jayme Closs coming out of nearby woods.

"She said she was lost, she didn't know where she was", Nutter told AFP.

"While I don't know how she escaped at this time, we believe that the suspect was out looking for her when law enforcement made contact with him", Fitzgerald said Friday. "It's not the song, it's the person who hurt you that was playing that song while they were doing something awful to you", she said.

"Look at the picture", she added. "She's the one that helped us break the case".

"Call 911!" the dog walker told Kasinskas.

He said it is also important for Jayme to know that "anything you're thinking and feeling is normal".
