FILE - In this Aug. file photo, Patty and Jerry Wetterling show a photo of their son Jacob Wetterling, who was abducted in October of 1989 in St. Joseph, Minn and is still missing, in Minneapolis. Patty Wetterling said Saturday, Sept. 2016
If you lived in Minnesota 27 years ago, the Jacob Wetterling story is seared into your mind. The reality of the unbelievable abduction and disappearance of a boy riding his bike is one that we have never forgotten. His disappearance is part of the collective story of our state and we all held our breath--and hoped--for his safe return one day. As we learned today, his remains have finally been found. We pray for peace & closure for his family. Jacob you are loved!!!!!!!
