NEW YORK (AP) ' Well-wishers are leaving flowers, candles and dolls outside the New York City building where police say 6-year-old Etan Patz (AY'-tahn payts) was strangled in 1979.

The little boy's disappearance from his Manhattan neighborhood was a mystery for 33 years, until a surprise confession this week by a New Jersey man who claimed to have lured the boy into the basement of a convenience store as he waited for his school bus.

Pedro Hernandez was arraigned on a murder charge Friday.

His lawyer says Hernandez is schizophrenic and has a history of hallucinations.

Etan's parents still live two blocks from the spot where he vanished.

A note on their door Saturday said they weren't commenting about the case.
