New hope in old missing child case?


In New York, the district attorney is reopening the case of Etan Patz, the first missing child to appear on milk cartons. It's been more than 30 years since Patz, then 6, disappeared while walking the two blocks to his school-bus stop. A convicted child molester was named as a suspect, but charges have never been brought against him. He's expected to be released from prison in 2012. May 25, the day that Etan disappeared, is now National Missing Children's Day.
