That led to an intense search that ended Thursday when the she was found alive - and Patterson was arrested - about 70 miles from her home.

"Jayme was taken against her will and escaped from the residence in which she was being held and found help", Fitzgerald said. They said they were in the process of confirming that a shotgun recovered in their investigation was the one used the night of the crime.

The grandfather of a northwest USA girl held captive for months says the family has no connection to the man suspected of kidnapping her and killing her parents. Investigators said they've found no evidence of any online conversations between the two.

"He didn't know Jayme, he didn't know (her parents) Denise or Jim", Naiberg said. Patterson quit, saying he was moving from the area, according to the company.

But CBS 2 security consultant Ross Rice says police will need to piece together who Jake Thomas Patterson is and why he allegedly killed Jayme's parents and snatched the 13-year-old girl.

The door of Jayme's family home near Barron 100km away had been blasted down with a shotgun in October, her parents gunned down, and Jayme abducted. "Call 911!" the neighbour told the teacher, according to the Star Tribune. When the dispatcher called back, a voicemail greeting indicated the phone belonged to Denise Closs.

Detectives pursued thousands of tips, watched dozens of surveillance videos and conducted numerous searches in the effort to find Jayme. The authorities did not offer any details about the conditions of her captivity or how she had managed to escape.

"We just prayed she was alive and would be found", said a woman at Season's Cafe.

Jayme was skinny, dishevelled and wearing shoes too big for her when she approached a stranger and pleaded for help on Thursday in the isolated town of Gordon, about 100 km north from her hometown of Barron.

Erik once lived in the same rural cabin in Gordon, Wisconsin where Jayme was held captive. Nutter said Jayme did not have a coat or gloves.

Sears at WestShore Plaza closing in January
The City of Rapid City tweeted that the closing of Kmart is more reflective of national retail issues, rather than anything local. Earlier in the year, Goleta's Kmart closed , with Target intending to take over the space at Storke Road and Hollister Avenue .

The couple went on to say she looked like she'd been held captive and like she hadn't been able to bathe.

The 66-year-old took the teen to a neighbor´s home, where they called police. When police stepped inside the family's home, they found the parents dead but no sign of Jayme.

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

"The suspect had specific intentions to kidnap Jayme and went to great lengths to prepare to take her", the sheriff said, such as shaving his head to avoid leaving traces of identifying evidence behind.

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

"On Monday, Jan. 14 ... at 3:30 p.m., the suspect will make his initial appearance in Barron County Circuit Court to be formally charged with two counts of first degree intentional homicide, and one count of kidnapping", he said.

The area of houses and cabins is where Closs ran up to a woman who was walking her dog on Thursday.

It shows her with Jennifer Smith, one of Closs' aunts, and the girl's dog Molly.

"She is doing great", Fitzgerald told CNN's "Anderson Cooper Full Circle".
