"These funds are going to go towards the journey with the family as they help Jayme through whatever it may be...driving to take care of her, taking her to the clinic, medical costs or anything", said De Andriano.

"Jayme was the hero in the case".

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

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

Jayme has been described as "medically cleared", although Sheriff Fitzgerald was unable to comment on whether the youngster had endured any abuse while being held captive.

"There is a reunification process in place going on right now that includes medical mental evaluation, questioning by detectives and Federal Bureau of Investigation agents, and then reunification with family".

Closs was released from a Minnesota hospital Friday and is staying in Barron, Wisconsin, with an aunt. He was being held in Barron County's jail on preliminary charges of intentional homicide and kidnapping, and will have an initial court appearance Monday.

Jake Patterson, 21, is accused of shooting and killing Jayme's parents before abducting the 13-year-old at her northwestern Wisconsin home on October 15.

Fitzgerald says authorities don't know of any social media connection between Patterson and the girl.

"The million-dollar question is why", Fitzgerald said Saturday. Once the police arrived and confirmed her identity, they left with Jayme.

However, authorities believe that Jake Patterson acted alone in kidnapping Jayme Closs and murdering her parents James, 56, and Denise Closs, 46. "And the dad I guess, I don't know".

She said, 'I'm Jayme, ' the woman told CNN affiliate WCCO.

Teacher Kristin Kasinskas was at her home, in Gordon, Wisconsin, on Friday when a neighbour started frantically knocking on her door.

As for what actually happened, Winter notes, "Maybe it happened that night and maybe it doesn't, but it doesn't really matter". Casting for the movie is underway with production on " The Many Saints of Newark " getting started later this year.


Investigators have said Patterson's goal was to kidnap Closs, but he appears to have no connection to the family.

Investigators believe Jayme was at the home when her parents were killed, and that Patterson abducted her from there, Fitzgerald said.

James Kuffel, the township's lone constable, said he knows nearly everyone in the area but has never encountered the Pattersons. He did work for one day at the same meat products plant where James and Denise were long-time employees, but authorities said they did not cross paths in Patterson's short time there.

"I was elected to keep people safe and not having that unknown out there", Fitzgerald said on Fox & Friends.

Also unclear is why he allegedly targeted her in the first place.

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

Almost three years ago, Patterson worked for one day at the same meat products facility where Jayme's parents also worked - the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron - the company's president said.

He said the unemployed suspect had ties to the Barron area, but did not elaborate.

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. "Call 911 right now!"

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said investigators are trying to figure out what happened to Jayme during her captivity and why she was seized, and gave no details on how she escaped except to say Patterson was not home at the time.

"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. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household". So we're determining, did he even let her go outside?

"She looked. kind of in rough shape".
