They gave no details on how she escaped except to say Patterson was not home at the time.

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, is charged with two counts of first-degree intentional homicide, and one count of kidnapping, in the abduction of 13-year-old Jayme Closs, and the slayings of her parents in Wisconsin.

Elizabeth Smart, who was 14 when she was kidnapped at knifepoint from her Salt Lake City home in 2002, told The Associated Press that everyone endures different mental and psychological trauma after kidnappings, but Jayme will have to confront the fact that there "is no going back to the way things were".

Jayme escaped Thursday from a cabin in Gordon, Wisconsin, where she said he had imprisoned her. Police arrested Patterson minutes later. Authorities are trying to track down their movements over the past three months to see what they can learn.

Closs was found by police Thursday after she had been missing for the previous 88 days.

Erik once lived in the same rural cabin in Gordon, Wisconsin where Jayme was held captive.

Her discovery led to the arrest of suspect Jake Thomas Patterson, who police said was driving around searching for the girl. "Did he buy food?" he said.

"She just said, 'I'm lost, and I don't know where I am, and I need help, '" Jeanne Nutter said.

The president of the Jennie-O Turkey store in Barron, where James and Denise Closs had worked for decades, said Patterson had been an employee there for a single day three years ago. "(Jayme) don't know him from Adam.

Jayme disappeared from her home near Barron after someone blasted their way in and shot her parents, James and Denise Closs, on October 15.

Naiberg, Jayme's grandfather, said he spent a few hours with her on Friday and she was largely silent. His initial court hearing is scheduled for Monday and records showed he does not have an attorney.

"We believe Jayme was the target, and he was getting rid of possible barriers to taking her", Fitzgerald said. They said there is nothing to indicate that he knew or had contact with the family before the incident, and said they do not know how he came to fixate on Jayme.

Kasinskas called 911 to report the girl had been found after another neighbor out walking her dog encountered Jayme and brought her to Kasinskas' house.

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

He says she has already met with an aunt and will be reunited with her other relatives on Friday night.

He also went to "great efforts" to avoid leaving any traces of himself at the crime scene, Fitzgerald said - including shaving his head so he wouldn't leave hair behind.

Authorities say Jayme managed to escape Thursday from a remote home near Gordon, which is about 60 miles (100 kilometers) north of Barron. The sheriff said he didn't know whether Jayme had been physically abused.

"She was crying when I first met her, but once I grabbed hold of her and held her as she walked, then she was calm", she said.

"It was great to know she was next to me all night", Jennifer Smith posted on Facebook on Saturday.
