Minnesota's Missing Children

GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - After nearly 27 years, Jacob Wetterling is finally home.

According to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, there are 29 souls from Minnesota who have been reported missing or abducted.

In May, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children held a #RockOneSock campaign to raise awareness for Minnesota's missing kids. Patty Wetterling, Jacob's mother, once served as chair of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. She discussed the effort with KARE 11's Julie Nelson.

On Wednesday, the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center posted on Facebook the concept for #11forJacob. People are being asked to add an 11 somewhere at their next game, concert, or big event if they are committed to making the world a better place for kids.

"It’s one of the many ways to honor Jacob’s spirit and his sense of fairness. 11 for Jacob – 11 things that people of all ages can do so that we nurture a culture of kindness and compassion," the post reads. #JacobsHopeLives
