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 Patterson of Gordon, Wisconsin, and said he was charged with the killings and the kidnapping.

Jayme apparently escaped from captivity in Gordon about 65 miles north of her home in Barron, where she was last seen, CBS News correspondent Adriana Diaz reports. Peter Kasinskas opened his front door to find his neighbor standing with a disheveled girl.

The article goes on to state the following:

“‘This is Jayme Closs and call 911,'” Kasinskas said his neighbor told him. “It was literally like I was seeing a ghost because we’ve seen the billboards and the commercials and all that stuff, and there she is in my kitchen.”

Kasinskas said Jayme appeared thin and ragged, wearing what looked like leggings, a sweatshirt and oversized men’s tennis shoes. He said she was quiet while they waited for police to arrive, roughly 15 minutes later.

Below is a video of the entire press conference held Friday morning:
