Runaways put pressure on Grand Rapids


GRAND RAPIDS, Minn -- On the days early this month that answers to the Jacob Wetterling mystery unfolded, there were four teens from Grand Rapids listed on a national registry of missing children.

They were four of 32 Minnesotans on the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children’s registry, making the city of slightly more than 11,000 people the most frequent location for missing children in the state outside of Minneapolis.

So far, one of those children has since been found safe, said Itasca County Health and Human Services Director Eric Villeneuve, who joined other sources in describing the missing Grand Rapids children, all of them between ages 15-17, as runaways who have left the city’s group homes.
