(HUFFINGTON POST) The NYPD and FBI might have a lead in the case of the first missing child to appear on a milk carton -- 33 years later.
Officials are searching the basement of a SoHo building in NYC for the remains of Etan Patz, who went missing in New York in 1979 on his way to the school bus stop.
FBI spokesman Tim Flannley told 1010 WINS, "The FBI and the NYPD are looking for evidence in the Etan Patz investigation. It’s one of many leads that we’re pursuing. It is a joint matter between the FBI and NYPD and no conclusions should be made about specifically why we’re here or what we’re looking for."
