Police identified a 21-year-old Wisconsin man Friday as the suspect in the case of 13-year-old Jayme Closs, who was found alive Thursday after disappearing the day her parents were murdered in October. Police identified the suspect as Jake Thomas Patterson of Gordon, Wisconsin, and said he was charged with the killings and the kidnapping.

Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald told reporters at a press conference that it appeared Patterson went to the Closs' home with the intention of abducting Jayme. Fitzgerald said he didn't know how Patterson knew her.

Police were not looking for additional suspects, Fitzgerald said. The sheriff said Gordon, where Jayme was found, was not on authorities' radar.
