Trying To Find Etan, The First Boy On The Milk Carton

This is interesting: The New York Times had a piece on developments in the 1979 disappearance of 6 year old Etan Patz who vanished while walking to school in New York City. Etan became the first of many missing children who were publicized by being put on milk cartons.
The building now being searched, 127B Prince Street, at the corner of Wooster Street, is less than a block from where Etan lived, at 113 Prince, and is along the route he was to have traveled in May 1979, when he was allowed to walk to the school bus stop by himself for the first time. Somewhere between his home and the bus stop, on West Broadway, he disappeared.
Even though it's been 33 years, these parents deserve to have closure just like any other parent of a missing child. Let's hope that NYPD and the FBI will help them find it.
