Jacob Wetterling Search Continues 25 Years Later
ST. CLOUD - Jacob Wetterling has been missing for nearly 25 years, and on Tuesday officials are launching a new effort to find him.
The National Center For Missing & Exploited Children, the Stearns County Sheriff's Office, the BCA, and FBI are holding a news conference in St. Cloud asking the public for help in the continued search for Wetterling. Billboards will also be placed in six locations around the area.
Wetterling was abducted from St. Joseph on October 22nd, 1989 when he was 11 years old. Wetterling, his brother and a friend were riding their bikes near their home when a masked gunman jumped out and ordered them on the ground. He asked each boy their age and let them go, except for Jacob.
Wetterling's story was recently featured on CNN's "The Hunt With John Walsh".
Tuesday's news conference is at 11:00 a.m. at the Stearns County Law Enforcement Center in downtown St. Cloud.
