    Jacob was a fun, active, athletic, kind, 11-year-old boy who loved peanut butter and football. He was most known for his sense of fairness.

    Jacob Erwin Wetterling is a boy from St. Joseph, Minnesota, who was kidnapped from his hometown at the age of 11 on Sunday, October 22, 1989. His whereabouts are unknown. Jacob Wetterling, his brother, and a friend were cycling home from a convenience store after 9 pm on October 22, 1989, when a masked gunman came out of a driveway and ordered the boys to throw their bikes into a ditch and lie face down on the ground. He then asked each boy his age. Jacob's brother was told to run toward a nearby wooded area and not look back or else he would be shot. Subsequently, the gunman asked to view the faces of the two remaining boys. He picked Jacob, and told his friend to run away and not look back otherwise he would shoot.

    Jacob's favorite song that was played many many many times on the radio, maybe around the world. Listen by Red Grammer

    I appreciate this thread and the intimacy of it. It is so important to be reminded that Jacob is a real boy, with a personality and interests, and not just an unsolved case.

    I would actually love to know more about him. He seems like such a nice kid.

    I can't speak for the others, but I never need reminding that Jacob is/was a real boy. I haven't posted much in this thread, but I appreciate those that do. Welcome to WS.

    It's a small world out there. Until last spring I had never actually met someone who had a chance to see and know Jacob. A new guy at work showed up and I got to talking him, he said he had grown up in St. Joe for a majority of his life. I said "What do you know about the Wetterling case?" He shook his head a bit "Don't Know, not much" I then talked a bit about the search on the farm and how that search may not be complete as people think. He said "no, I don't think that guy did it" "I think he was sold into a sex ring". He then told me he had known Jacob, that he seen him many times around town either hanging around at his dads work or with his friends over at Kays Kitchen for ice cream. In fact, he told me he had seen Jacob either the day or the day before he was abducted at his dad's chiropractors office. I asked him what was he like? "oh nice kid, always smiling" "your average good kid" I stood there in awe at him "Wow", feeling a bit closer to Jacob, and glad to know that I know someone that Jacob knew as well. I've since become very good friends with this person.

    I like it a lot, too. It's inspirational, and an appropriate tribute to this lost child, who by all accounts was affable and kind-hearted. Also appropriate is that the song is from an album called Teaching Peace.

    "Jacob was fun, he was smart, he loved sports..he could do a play by play better than the sports caster," Patty recalled. "He hated when things weren't fair. I think that's telling because you can't get more unfair than this. He stood up for his friends. He was a good friend and he had a great sense of humor."

    "On April 1, every year, he'd put a rubber band around the hose in the kitchen sink, so every time I turned it on, I'd get sprayed in the face," she added, laughing. "He was fun and those are the things we share and remember on his birthday."

    Since Jacob was abducted, Patty, who's co-founder of Team H.O.P.E. and chair member of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, has refused to give up on the search for her son.
