Police search Manhattan building for child missing since 1979

| 1 Comment

FBI officials are searching for any traces of Etan Patz, a 6-year-old boy who disappeared in 1979, in the basement of a building in New York City's SoHo neighborhood, the Associated Press said.

Utility workers began ripping up the basement in the building on Friday after an FBI dog indicated the scent of human remains in the room, Fox News said.

Patz vanished after leaving his family's apartment for a brief walk to the bus stop- his first time ever walking there alone.

The investigators are digging up the floor and the drywall in an attempt to find flood, clothing or human remains in the building which is down the street from the Patz's home,Fox News said.

The search temporarily stopped Sunday due to bad weather but will resume Monday morning.

I am shocked when such cases become apparent. I pray for the family of that boy and hope that such things would not happen often in the future.
