WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar spoke on the Senate floor today and honored the life of Jacob Wetterling. She also honored the advocacy of Patty Wetterling and the Wetterling family on behalf of missing and exploited children.

She has saved so many lives in Jacob’s memory. I just wanted to take the moment personally to recognize Patty for her strength and her courage and her grace.”
