NYPD Searches for Etan Patz

The FBI and the NYPD on Thursday searched a basement of a New York City apartment building in search of Etan Patz, a 6-year-old boy who went missing in 1979 and captivated the nation. Patz disappeared after leaving his home on May 25, 1979, and has never been found. The basement is about 200 feet from where the Patz family lived, and NYPD spokesman Paul Browne said while the basement has been searched before, there is drywall there that wasn’t there in 1979. Two law-enforcement officials told NBC New York that there is a possible new suspect in the case.
