BARRON, Wis. (AP) — The grandfather of a 13-year-old northwestern Wisconsin girl says she's in "exceptionally good spirits" after being found nearly three months after authorities say she was kidnapped during a home invasion that left her parents dead.

Jamye Closs had been missing for nearly three months when she approached a stranger Thursday near the small town of Gordon. Officers arrested 21-year-old Jake Thomas Patterson minutes later based on Jayme's description of his vehicle.

Robert Naiberg told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Sunday that he's spoken with his granddaughter the last two nights. He's says she's "doing exceptionally well for what she went through."

Authorities are holding Patterson on suspicion of kidnapping and homicide. Charges are expected Monday.
