‘There Is No Going Back’: Elizabeth Smart Offers Advice To Jayme Closs

The search for her started with a mysterious 911 call from the cellphone of her mother, who was found shot to death with her father in their Wisconsin home.

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.

"Jayme is safe!" Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said.

"I know all of you are searching for the answer why any of this happened", Fitzgerald said.

"She said that this person's name was Jake Patterson, 'he killed my parents and took me, '" Kristin Kasinskas said.

The few neighbours who know Patterson's family say he grew up in a cabin in a remote development that's a mix of seasonal and year-round homes about 10 miles (16 kilometers) outside Gordon proper.

That just came in on our tipline, ' Baron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerland said. Patterson quit, saying he was moving from the area, according to the company. But the sheriff said it did not appear Patterson interacted with the couple. Investigators are trying to determine whether he worked at another job in the area.

Authorities had been searching for Jayme, 13, ever since October 15, when her parents were found shot dead in their Barron, Wisconsin, home. Their bodies were discovered on October 15. When the dispatcher called back, a voicemail greeting indicated the phone belonged to Denise Closs.

Another aunt, Sue Naiberg Allard, posted that Jayme got "the most awaited hug ever".

During the intense, nationwide investigation for Jayme, officials from the FBI, state patrol and local law enforcement received thousands of tips.

The first two summits were not reported until after Kim left China , and the third was disclosed on the second day of his visit. Kim's visit also marks the 70th anniversary of ties between Pyongyang and Beijing .

The search for Jayme shows the power of collaboration between law enforcement, media and the public. But Fitzgerald said they never exhausted of looking for her.

Jayme Closs had been missing for almost three months when she approached a stranger in a small Wisconsin town and pleaded for help.

The teen was able to escape from a cabin before flagging down a pedestrian walking her dog in the town of Gordon.

"Jayme is the hero in this case, there's no question about it", he said. Even during the 88 days of captivity of Jayme - we still don't think that anybody assisted him in that.

Taken at knifepoint from her Salt Lake City bedroom in 2002, Smart said that during her captivity, she felt like "life had been stolen from me, all the dreams and aspirations had been stolen". "I've met him and talked to him when I walked through the neighborhood, but that's about all I know".

"No matter what may unfold in her story let's all try to remember that this young woman has SURVIVED and whatever other details may surface the most important will still remain that she is alive", Ms Smart wrote.

Less than 15 minutes after Closs' rescue, Patterson was taken into custody after police pulled him over, based on Closs' description of his vehicle. Police say he was out on the streets looking for Jayme after she escaped.

Straub also said Jayme's case brings up the issue of victim privacy.

Jake Thomas Patterson was arrested on two counts of first-degree homicide and one count of kidnapping, police said on Friday.

As Jayme Closs starts her long road toward recovery following her kidnapping ordeal, investigators are working to piece together what happened during the almost three months she was in captivity. So now, "she needs to feel.in control and experience her memories in a way that. doesn't retrigger" her trauma.
