Wisconsin man, 21, arrested in teen’s abduction

County Wis. Sheriff's Department shows Jayme Closs who was discovered missing Oct. 15 2018 after her parents were found fatally shot at their home in Barron Wis. The Barron County Sheriff'

Gordon is about 40 miles (64.4 kilometers) south of Lake Superior and about 65 miles (104.6 kilometers) north of Barron, Jayme's hometown.

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 almost three months.

The FBI had been searching nationwide for Closs and described her as "endangered".

"My legs started to shake".

The Wisconsin man suspected of kidnapping a girl and killing her parents took steps to hide his identity as he held the teen captive for months, Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said Friday. It was not clear how far she walked before running into the woman walking her dog.

"She was skinnier than in her photograph, but I think healthy overall", Kasinskas said, adding that Closs identified her kidnapper. "She did not talk about why or how".

After pulling it over and questioning the driver, authorities arrested him and placed him in custody in Barron County, where he was charged with first-degree homicide and one count of kidnapping. It was not immediately known whether the unemployed man had an attorney.

"She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household". Investigators were still interviewing her.

Fitzgerald said they are continuing to investigate and search for evidence in Gordon.

Officials believe the 21-year-old killed the teenager's parents in order to kidnap her.

Peter Kasinskas, a resident of Gordon, told CBS News he opened the door to his neighbor saying, "This is Jayme Closs", and asking him to call authorities.

It's ridiculous", said Senator Angus King, a ME independent who caucuses with Democrats. "We have been negotiating", she said. Unsafe drugs like heroin are flooding our country through the southern border, destroying lives by the hundreds-of-thousands.

The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Jayme approached a woman walking her dog but authorities have released no details.

Smart posted Friday on her Instagram account that she was thrilled Jayme had been found.

Jayme vanished October 15, the day her parents, James and Denise Closs, were found fatally shot in their home near Barron, a town of 3,300 people in northwestern Wisconsin.

Mrs Kasinskas said Jayme told them she did not know why she was targeted.

Jayme had been missing since October 15. She said she never saw Patterson on her street or in town, and doesn't remember seeing him since he was in high school.

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

"I was terrified, but I didn't want to show her that", Nutter, a social worker who spent years working in child protection, said on Friday. I had asked her if she knew where Gordon, Wisconsin, was. The girl said she'd been abducted and had escaped from a house where she had been left alone, Peter Kasinskas told the NPR member station.

Sue Allard, Jayme's aunt, told the Star Tribune newspaper that she could barely express her joy after learning the news Thursday night. From what she told them, they believed she was there for most of her disappearance.

Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted numerous searches in the effort to find Jayme.

Authorities in Wisconsin say 13-year-old Jayme Closs, seen here in an undated photo, has been found alive. She was rescued nine months later with the help of two witnesses who recognized her abductors from an "America's Most Wanted" episode. Fitzgerald said he didn't know whether Patterson owned the home there or whether it was the only location where he had allegedly held the girl.
