[Patz] became the first missing child whose face appeared on the side of a milk carton.
It's interesting to think of the milk carton photo nowadays and how it's become a joke as well a popular halloween costume. I never even wondered who was the first to ever be put on a milk carton.
This is a sad story.
Federal investigators and New York City police got ready to tear up the concrete floor of a Manhattan apartment building today searching for evidence 6-year-old Etan Patz, who disappeared 33 years ago.
A cadaver dog brought to the building's basement indicated a "hit," which helped trigger the new probe.
The search underway today at 127 Prince St., in the city's SoHo neighborhood, is related to a carpenter or handyman who had befriended the boy. The carpenter's name had surfaced in earlier investigations.
Federal sources told ABC News that the night before the boy disappeared he had been in the basement of 127 B Prince St. where the handyman befriended Patz and gave him a dollar.
