Updated: June 25, 2019 07:05 PM

The lessons learned from the Jacob Wetterling case are helping shape how cases involving other missing and exploited children are now handled.

And they were the topic of a presentation delivered Tuesday by Alison Feigh of the Jacob Wetterling Resource Center as part of the Minnesota Coalition Against Sexual Assault's 2019 annual training symposium.


The event began Monday and ends Wednesday.

"When Jacob was taken back in 1989, there was a 60% recovery rate for missing people," Feigh said. "And last year, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children listed a 97.5% recovery rate.

"A big part of that is there are more tools and sharing of information thanks to conferences like this."
