Jacob Wetterling Abduction Investigation

On October 22, 1989 in St. Joseph, Minnesota, 11-year-old Jacob Wetterling was abducted while biking home from a convenience store with his younger brother and friend. Shortly after Jacob was taken around 9:30pm, a neighbor of the Wetterling's contacted Jacob's parents and the Stearns County Sheriff's Department. By 10pm a search for Jacob begin, but was called off around 3am because it was simply too dark to find anything. The search started up again at 8am the following morning, but by this time Jacob had already been murdered.

It's a simple fact that investigators didn't cover their most basic procedures that evening. Police should've begun the search at the abduction site and then branch out from there. This also means that police should have questioned the people who lived nearby where Jacob was taken.
