The 33-year search for missing Etan Patz ends with no substantial evidence found in the NYC basement. His disappearance remains unsolved!
Etan Patz disappeared on May 25, 1979 at the age of six and has never been found, but 33 years later, new evidence tipped off the authorities to re-open the case. Sadly, after police dug up a basement in New York City’s SoHo neighborhood, little evidence came from the search. The Patz family was informed that nothing significant was found on April 22 — no human remains or any other evidence was recovered from the basement on Prince Street, ABC News reports.
There was material found, including some human hair and a possible blood stain. The hair found was not the hair from Etan, but the possible blood stain was sent to a FBI forensic lab in Virginia.
The FBI said in a statement that there is still not a significant amount of solid new evidence to report currently.
“It’s important not to read too much into anything at this time,” the statement reports. “The process of removing material, sorting it and analyzing it proceeds at a deliberate pace.
Our hearts go out to the Patz family!
