    This older link contains several article son Jacob. The 4th article down is an open letter from Patty W. to the kidnapper, and the 6th article down is the story of Jacob's kidnapping as it was printed in the Reader's Digest in 1999. The article has a lot of detail.

    For Wetterlings, It’s Been A Long Road To Answers
    October 29, 2015 11:21 PM By John Lauritsen

    MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Since his abduction, Jacob’s family has been through a roller coaster of memories, anniversaries, and false hope.
    Through their grief, the Wetterlings have worked to help other families of missing and exploited children.

    [...]
    “There’s no explanation. I don’t feel anger. I just want him home,” Jacob’s mother Patty Wetterling said the day after he was abducted.

    That day his father Jerry urged Jacob to stay strong.

    “I’m very optimistic,” he said. :My son is very intelligent, and if he can pull through he’ll do so.”

    UPDATE: 26 years later, ‘person of interest’ named in Jacob Wetterling disappearance

    MINNEAPOLIS -- Twenty-six years after the disappearance of 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling brought national media attention to central Minnesota, a person of interest in the case has been named.
    Recommended for you

    Authorities say Daniel James Heinrich, 52, of Annandale, was identified by authorities after being the subject of a child pornography investigation. The U.S. Attorney’s office said Thursday a search warrant had been executed at Heinrich’s home seeking evidence in a Jan. 13, 1989 kidnapping near Cold Spring and Wetterling’s disappearance on Oct. 22, 1989, near St. Joseph. [HR][/HR]MISSING CHILDREN: Stearns County abduction cases have been linked before
    By Stephanie Dickrell, St. Cloud Times on Oct 29, 2015 at 10:03 p.m.

    [...]
    On Thursday, officials announced that DNA evidence connected Daniel Heinrich to that Cold Spring case. On the basis of that evidence, they were able to obtain a warrant where evidence of child pornography was discovered.

    Heinrich is considered a person of interest in the Wetterling case, but officials emphasized that Heinrich has not been charged in that case and he has denied any involvement.

    However, anyone with information about Heinrich's activities in the late 1980s and early 1990s is asked to contact authorities.

    Whether a link existed between those two cases has been investigated since Wetterling was taken in October 1989, Sherrif Sanner said.

    [...]
    The boy [Cold Springs victim] described his attacker as a man wearing military fatigues and black boots, possibly military boots. The abductor had husky shoulders and a low-pitched, raspy voice.

    [...]
    The boys in the Wetterling case described the kidnapper as wearing dark clothing and black boots. The man also was described as having a raspy voice.

    Searching for Jacob: A timeline of an 11-year-old boy's disappearance
    By St. Cloud Times on Oct 29, 2015 at 9:52 p.m.

    It's been 26 years since Jacob Wetterling disappeared. Countless hours of investigation have led federal agents to a person of interest. The search to find Jacob continues, and the St. Cloud Times presents the timeline that spans more than a quarter of a century.

    Oct. 22, 1989: Eleven-year-old Jacob Erwin Wetterling is abducted by a masked gunman about 9:15 p.m. along 91st Avenue, southeast of St. Joseph. Firefighters and 35 officers from the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office and other law enforcement agencies search the area. Two local FBI agents and five from Minneapolis are assigned to the case. A state helicopter with a searchlight searches the nearby woods and fields. A command post is set up at Del-Win Ballroom in St. Joseph. Searches are called off at 3 a.m. until daybreak.

    Oct. 23, 1989: The search resumes at 8 a.m. Department of Natural Resources officers use all-terrain vehicles to search a 2-mile radius around the abduction site. Helicopters fly over a 25-square-mile area. A Minneapolis bloodhound leads officers to tire tracks, prompting officers to believe the kidnapper had a car nearby. By 1:30 p.m., fliers are distributed.

    Oct. 24, 1989: An FBI expert in psychological profiles flies in from Washington, D.C., to join about 14 other investigators.

    [...]

    July 2, 2010: Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner said investigators released “a number of items” during a search of the St. Joseph Township property. It could take months for the items to be analyzed. Sanner calls Dan Rassier, a man who lives at the property, a person of interest in Jacob’s disappearance.

    [..]

    2014-2015: The Stearns County Sheriff's Office, the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension and the FBI conducted a full, cold-case review of the Wetterling case. It resulted in the identification of leads and other avenues of investigation. Authorities say examination of DNA evidence connected Heinrich to a sexual assault case of a 12-year-old boy in Cold Spring, 10 months before Jacob disappeared. On the basis of that evidence, authorities obtained a search warrant. Authorities say evidence of child pornography was discovered.

    Danny Heinrich on Wetterling investigators' radar since 1989

    [...]

    Robert Dudley wrote a book on the investigation and said this break in the case doesn’t come as a surprise to him. The author is only the most recent to hand over evidence pointing to Heinrich.

    [...]

    A private investigator, whose notes are used in Dudley's book, interviewed a man once considered the main suspect in the case.

    "That suspect actually suggested that Heinrich had committed the crime,” Dudley said. “He described Heinrich's car, and police scanner radio as being very similar to that in Jared's case."

    [...]

    "I sent the notes to Stearns County and the FBI and I don't know if it was helpful or not,” he said.

    According to the complaint, the person of interest acknowledged that he had child porn in his home, stating that some of the things law enforcement would find are "pretty damning...

    "Heinrich faces significant prison time if convicted on the child pornography charges. He made an appearance in federal court in St. Paul on Thursday and will have a detention hearing in the near future.[HR][/HR]Annandale Man Named 'Person of Interest' in Jacob Wetterling Case
    By KSTP TV on Oct 29, 2015 at 3:35 p.m.

    [...]

    Investigators say they found more than 100 pictures of suspected child pornography at the home. They say they found 19 three-ring binders that were full of images of children, including naked, young boys. Some of them were known child victims, Luger said.

    They also found hours of videos, apparently recorded by Heinrich, of neighborhood children delivering newspapers, riding bikes, playing on playgrounds and participating in sports.

    [...]

    Luger said Heinrich was interviewed by investigators about the disappearance of Wetterling, and he denied any involvement in it. Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner also said Heinrich was looked at “very closely” in 1989 and 1990, and that he is “not someone new to us.”
