Jayme Closs: Dog walker describes the moment when she found a kidnapped teenager in the forest of Wisconsin
The dog-walker who saved Jayme Closs after discovering she was strolling through the forest in Wisocnsin, described the moment when she was being taken by the kidnapped teenager.
Jeanne Nutter said she initially did not recognize Jayme, who had been missing for 88 days at the time, but immediately knew that the girl was in trouble.
& # 39; It was 19 or 20F outside and she only had a sweatshirt on and perhaps a black leggings, & # 39; said Nutter in an interview with CBS.
I thought she was in her slippers, so I thought she was leaving where she was hurrying or someone was driving here and dropping her off. & # 39;
Jeanne Nutter described the moment she discovered Jayme Closs in the Wisconsin Woods last week, 88 days after she was missing
Nutter first said that she did not recognize Jayme, but knew that the girl was in trouble because she only wore a sweater and leggings, even though the 20F was outside
As Nutter speeded up her pace to overtake Jayme, she recognized the teenager who fell into her arms and said: "I am Jayme & # 39;
Nutter said that when she approached the girl, she heard her say: "I am lost, I do not know where I am, I need help."
Only after Nutter had speeded up her pace to catch up with the mysterious figure, she realized who she was.
I came to her and she fell on me a bit and said, "I'm Jayme," and I said, "I know," Nutter revealed.
Jayme was first missing on October 15 last year after the police were called to her parental home and found her parents James, 56, and Denise, 46, shot dead.
Officers quickly decided Jayme as a suspect and concluded instead that she had been kidnapped before they started a manhunt.
Despite revising almost 2000 tips, researchers had not found concrete evidence of Jayme's whereabouts until she appeared last week.
Jayme became skinny and dirty, but outwardly OK & # 39; found after she escaped from her prisoner and happened to Nutter.
The Kaiskais family, who lived next to Nutter, described how the dog-walker brought Jayme home after she found her.
Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, has been arrested and accused of killing Jayme's parents in a highly orchestrated plot before imprisoning her.
The police are investigating various locations in Patterson's wooded house where they believe Jayme was kept, including this cellar

The study was filled with soft toys, a dirty mattress, women's clothing and make-up for women
Kristin Kasiskas told Fox: & # 39; When our neighbor Jeanne came with Jayme, she said: & # 39; Take a gun, we do not know if he's after us. & # 39;
& # 39; So we were armed and ready in case this person turned up. & # 39;
The couple called quickly 911 and Jayme gave a description of the car that the kidnapped Jake Patterson (21) drove.
The police say he was on the hunt for Jayme after he missed her.
The Kasinskas said that three officers arrived at their home, brought Closs to safety and told Kristin and their children to come out of the windows in case the kidnapper tried to enter.
Kristin's husband was asked to stand guard outside the door on the top floor.
The suspect was arrested a short time later, near their home.
The police have called him 21-year-old Jake Patterson and accused him of kidnapping Jayme as part of a carefully planned operation.
Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald said that Jayme was & # 39; focused & # 39; on the kidnapping and that Patterson had worked in a processing plant for turkeys where Jayme's parents James and Denise also worked.
However, the owner of the turkey plant said that Patterson had been accepted one day and stopped with the following, explaining that he was retiring from the area.
Patterson was arrested in his car close to home while he was obviously looking for Jayme after she managed to escape
Jayme was missing from the house she shared with parents James, 56 and Denise, 46, after being shot with a shotgun in October last year
