(WLUK) -- A long road ahead, that's what Jennifer Naiberg Smith had to say about her niece Jayme Closs Saturday morning.

In a Facebook post, Smith says Closs "had a pretty good night sleep and it was great to know she was next to me all night."

Her post went on to say, "As a family we will get through all of the healing process Jayme has. It will be a long road but we are family strong and we love this little girl so much!! We will do anything and everything!! My beloved sister Denise pooh and brother in law Jim can rest at peace and I keep assuring them Jayme is safe and we will make sure forever."

Another family member also posted on Facebook.

Those who have been following Closs' story are also seeing a new photo of the teen smiling with two dogs by her side.

Closs was reunited with her aunt Friday.

A P.O. Box was set up for Closs for anyone who wants to send her cards or other items.

Closs managed to escape from a man's home earlier this week and told deputies she was held against her will for 88 days.
