July 2, 2010, 7:12 AM
ST. JOSEPH, MN -
Authorities have left a central Minnesota farm near the site where 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling was abducted nearly 21 years ago.
Investigators spent two days on the St. Joseph farm and used a backhoe Thursday to dig up the property. Stearns County Sheriff John Sanner tells the St. Cloud Times that this phase of the investigation is complete and no arrests have been made. The sheriff would not comment on what investigators are finding or looking for - citing a court order - but says a news release will be issued Friday morning.
Jacob Wetterling was abducted by a masked gunman October 22, 1989, about a half-mile from his home. Authorities have cleared more than 40,000 leads in the case over the years.
