ST. JOSEPH (GaeaTimes.com)- 21 years after the then 11-year-old boy Jacob Wetterling was abducted by a masked man on gunpoint, the investigators are still unable to find the whereabouts of the boy and continuing their search. On Wednesday the police returned to the property near which Jacob Wetterling was abducted. Around 17 vehicles that included trailers and all-terrain vehicles were spotted in front of the property of Robert Rassier and Rita Rassier. As per reports the two have confirmed to some media sources that their property was being searched by the police who came to the spot along with some FBI officials.

Although the police was found in front of the property of Robert Rassier, nothing was mentioned by both police and Robert Rassier over the proceeding. While the latter declined to comment on the issue, the former said that the court has ordered not to divulge any information on the matter. It is not yet clear whether the police are in any way suspecting the two to be involved in the Jacob Wetterling case. FBI spokesman said that they were assisting the police in the area to carry out a search warrant operation.

Patty Wetterling said to media sources that she is glad about the fact that the police are still continuing its search for Jacob Wetterling adding that she hopes to find her son alive one day. However, she maintained that Robert Rassier and his wife are “wonderful people” and that they were in Europe when Jacob Wetterling was abducted. She also maintained that she believes the investigation was related to one of the family members of Robert Rassier who had been questioned earlier.
