Manhattan DA to reopen 31-year-old missing child case
Six-year-old Etan Patz vanished on May 25, 1979.
One of the most extensive missing-child searches was mounted, but two decades later, the boy was officially declared dead. No one has ever been arrested.
Now, the Manhattan district attorney's office will take a fresh look at the evidence collected against the prime suspect, a convicted child molester serving 20 years in prison in Pennsylvania.
