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!!!!!!!
