Probe of 1979 disappearance leads to NYC basement
Investigators search NYC basement for clues in 1979 disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz
By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' A team of police officers and FBI agents are digging up a basement in Manhattan as part of a decades-old investigation into the disappearance of a 6-year-old boy.

The missing child is Etan Patz (AY'-tahn PAYTS), who vanished in 1979 after leaving his family's SoHo home for a short walk to his school bus stop.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne says the building being searched is about a block from where the family lived.

He says the excavation is the result of a recently-ordered review of the case by the Manhattan district attorney.

Investigators expect to be at the site for two to three days, examining a space that now sits beneath a clothing store.

Authorities didn't say what evidence led them to that location.
