Both the woman and the neighbour recognised the teen immediately on Thursday due to the enormous public campaign following her disappearance, Fitzgerald said.
They called 911, and Jayme provided a description of Patterson's vehicle. Even during the 88 days of captivity of Jayme - we still don't think that anybody assisted him in that.
Patterson is unemployed, although worked for one day at the Jennie-O Turkey Store in Barron, where the Closs' worked for 27 years. "I've met him and talked to him when I walked through the neighborhood, but that's about all I know".
"All along, Patty (Wetterling) was saying, 'I knew it, I knew she was OK, '" said Jane Straub, victim assistance specialist at the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center.
Fitzgerald said Saturday that investigators believe Patterson acted alone.
"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".
The National Centre for Missing and Exploited Children said it was "overjoyed" that Closs was found alive.
"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.
"I'm lost and I don't know where I am, and I need help", Jayme told Nutter, the woman told the station.
Nutter took Jayme to the closest house, the home of Kristin and Peter Kasinkas, and they called 911.
When deputies arrested him, he was out looking for Jayme, Fitzgerald said.
She was due to be reunited with her extended family later on Friday. "She said that this person usually hides her or hides her when others are near, or when he has to leave the household".
"Jayme had a pretty good night sleep it was great to know she was next to me all night what a great feeling to have her home". I figured if they hadn't found her by now that the person that did this didn't want her dead, so I had hope.
