Smiling Jayme Closs enjoys a meal with Grandpa, who promised her a steak when she returned home

The grandfather of abducted teen Jayme Closs, who reunited with her family last month, promised to get his granddaughter a steak once she returned home, and apparently he lived up to his promise.

A photo shared on the Facebook group, “Healing for Jayme Closs” showed the 13-year-old smiling while enjoying a steak dinner with her grandfather, Robert Naiberg. The photo was reportedly taken at Naiberg’s Wisconsin home.

“What an awesome picture. He spent 88 days wondering and worrying sick,” the photo caption read. “Now he’s got her back and giving her the meal he said he was going to give!!! We can’t love this enough.”

According to NBC 13, Naiberg said in December that Jayme was a fan of steak.

“I just wish that I had you home, I’d take you out for a steak if I had you home, she likes steak,” Naiberg said.

FOX News reports that Jayme’s aunt, Jennifer Naiberg Smith, said that Jayme always had a special bond with her grandfather.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jayme disappeared from her Barron home after two adults, identified as her parents, James Closs, 56, and Denise Closs, 46, were found dead a little after 1 a.m. on October 15. Both victims were shot to death, according to police.

On January 10 at around 4:45 p.m., a woman was walking a dog in a housing development just outside of Gordon, when a girl with matted hair wearing men’s shoes and tattered clothing approached her for help. The girl was Jayme and she had just escaped a home in the rural area. A suspect named Jake Patterson, 21, is accused of killing Jayme’s parents before forcing her into his car and driving her to the home, where he’s accused of holding her captive for 88 days.

Patterson is now facing a slew of felony charges, including murder, kidnapping, and armed burglary. He remains behind bars without bail.
