Jayme Closs has reunited with her loved ones, one day after escaping the 21-year-old man who allegedly abducted her and killed her parents nearly three months ago.

PEOPLE has obtained the first photo of the 13-year-old with her aunt Jennifer Smith and her dog Molly. Smith, who is Jayme’s mother Denise’s sister, will act as the teen’s legal guardian.

The picture, in which Jayme can be seen smiling, is the first time the public has seen her since news of her being found.

Jayme had been missing after vanishing on Oct. 15 — the same night her parents, Denise, 46, and James Closs, 56, were found dead in their home in Barron, Wisconsin, nearly 70 miles south of Gordon. She had been declared “missing and endangered,” an AMBER Alert was issued for her and thousands of people joined investigators in their search for her.
