Jayme Closs's aunt, Jennifer Naiberg Smith, posted an update on Jayme's condition Saturday morning, shared via the Healing For Jayme Closs Facebook page.

Hang Lee was a Highland Park High School senior when she left her family's St. Paul apartment for the last time in January 1993.

It's been an emotional roller coaster as the timeline of events involving Jayme Closs' kidnapping, escape and reunion with her family continue to unfold.

Smart said she would tell Jayme that "she is a survivor and she is a hero".

Officials say Closs is doing well after having been missing from the Barron area since October 15.

"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. Officers arrested 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson minutes later based on Jayme's description of his vehicle.

Authorities have said they don't believe Patterson crossed paths with Jayme's parents there.

In the post, Jennifer writes 'Everyone is so proud of you, Jayme!'

Jake Thomas Patterson, 21, who allegedly killed two people and held their daughter captive for three months.

Closs was found alive almost three months to the day she was abducted from her western Wisconsin home where her parents were found shot and killed.

"I can tell you that the subject planned his actions and took many proactive steps to hide his identity from law enforcement and the general public", he said. "That's the million-dollar question, is why". She said they stole things and spent time in foster care.

On Thursday, Closs was able to escape from a cabin before flagging down a person walking a dog in Gordon and asking for help, authorities said.

"He didn't know Jayme, he didn't know Denise or Jim", Naiberg said.

Celtics Roster & Lineup vs. Heat; Impact on NBA Standings in East
Currently, Miami sits at 19-20 and in the No. 7 spot, but a remain 5.5 games back of Boston and 10 games back of first place. Miami shot 53.1 percent from the floor, and the Celtics were 19-for-49 (38.8 percent) from the field after two quarters.

The cabin is in Eau Claire Acres, a development about 10 miles outside the tiny town of Gordon, nestled in the dense evergreen forests of northwestern Wisconsin that are popular with vacationers in the summer and snowmobilers and ATV riders in the winter.

They sought refuse with husband and wife Kristin and Peter Kasinskas while the police turned up.

She vanished October 15 after James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, were gunned down inside their home in Barron County, about 80 miles northeast of Minneapolis.

Investigators believe Jayme was at the home when her parents were killed, and that Patterson abducted her from there, Fitzgerald said. Patterson took such measures as shaving his head beforehand to avoid leaving evidence at the scene, the sheriff said.

Almost three years ago, Patterson worked for one day at the same meat products facility where Jayme's parents worked - the Jennie-O Turkey Store plant in Barron.

He has no criminal record, the sheriff said.

Mr Patterson was interviewed by Douglas County officials and then transported to the Barron County jail.

While authorities are still trying to determine the motive behind the kidnapping, more details about Patterson have emerged.

They went to a nearby house and pounded on the door with Jeanne shouting 'This is Jayme Closs! "Call 911 right now!"

"The suspect had specific intentions to kidnap Jayme and went to great lengths to prepare to take her", said Fitzgerald.

"I went to her and she just sort of grabbed onto me and she told me who she was".

"I don't recall anything that would have explained this, by any means".

In a newly released photo, the teen is seen smiling with Smith.
