Investigators believe 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson gunned down James and Denise Closs in their home near Barron in October and abducted their 13-year-old daughter, Jayme.

The Patterson family moved to Gordon about 15 years ago and Jake and Erik were raised there and attended Minong High School, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Jeff Closs, Jayme's uncle, said that the teen's return was shocking.

Jayme's grandfather Robert Naiberg said in a telephone interview on Saturday that no one in the family knew Patterson.

Jake Thomas Patterson is being held on kidnapping and homicide charges after his arrest Thursday.

"Jayme was the champion that finally said enough is enough", Fitzgerald said.

It had been almost three months since she went missing from her home in Barron, where her parents were found dead.

Patterson was not at home when Jayme escaped, the sheriff added.

A Facebook page called "Healing for Jayme Closs" has been set up where her family will provide updates on her condition. They say she was "the only target". She said she did not know Patterson was living at the house and had not seen Closs.

They called 911, and Jayme provided a description of Patterson's vehicle.

Jayme Closs' suspected kidnapper had no prior criminal record, however, detectives are now looking into his brother who was convicted of sexually assaulting a minor. "I think she was doing OK despite the circumstances", she said.

Now I feel refreshed to start the year, but still I am a little bit back with everything, preparation and matches. "We like him. It's no accident that I've written first British man to win Wimbledon since 1936. "She has been so successful in the game".

Sheriff Fitzgerald says Jayme was being held against her will in a home in the Douglas County community of Gordon, about an hour north of Barron.

The man accused of kidnapping Jayme Closs shaved his head to avoid leaving any evidence during the attack that left her parents dead, police said. The killing of Jayme's family and her own disappearance had been a major subject of news and attention in the area.

Closs was missing for almost three months when she approached a stranger in the small, isolated town of Gordon and pleaded for help.

Additionally, authorities "don't believe there was a social media connection" between Closs and Patterson and are working to figure out "how he became aware of Jayme", Fitzgerald said.

Fitzgerald said Saturday that investigators believe Patterson acted alone.

For months, thousands of people joined search parties as investigators received thousands of tips. "(Jayme) don't know him from Adam.

They sought refuse with husband and wife Kristin and Peter Kasinskas while the police turned up.

"Did he take things with her, did she go with him to the store, did he buy clothes for her, did he buy food", he said. 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. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".

Closs was released from a Minnesota hospital Friday and is staying in Barron, Wisconsin, with an aunt. While the world may wonder what she went through in captivity, typically if a minor has suffered abuse their identities are kept private. "Jayme was the champion that finally said enough is enough", Fitzgerald said.

"They're probably experiencing a lot of feelings because although they're so overjoyed for the Closs family, there is still that, 'But I'm waiting for my loved one to come home, '" Straub said.
