Local News

The $50,000 reward for information on Jayme Closs’s location remains up in the air.

According to Barron County Sheriff Chris Fitzgerald, the status of the reward is being discussed with the FBI and will later determine who will receive it. On Thursday, January 10, Jayme reportedly escaped alleged kidnapper Jake Patterson’s cabin in Gordon by herself before finding a woman walking with her dog. She was then brought to the home of Peter and Kristin Kasinskas, who called 911. 

According to Peter Kasinskas, he and his wife do not want the reward and says if anyone gets the money, it should be Jayme because she “got herself out.”
