'Jayme is home': Barron County church holds service to honor missing teen's return

CAMERON - For 88 days, the people of Barron County prayed that Jayme Closs would be found.

On Sunday night, the community turned to church for a different sort of prayer — one expressing gratitude for the 13-year-old's safe return home.

Family, friends and neighbors gathered at St. Peter Catholic Church in Cameron for a prayer service to honor Jayme, who freed herself from the northern Wisconsin home of Jake Thomas Patterson on Jan. 10 after nearly three months in captivity. Patterson is charged with shooting and killing Jayme's parents, James and Denise Closs, on Oct. 15, abducting her and holding her in his Town of Gordon home.
