(REUTERS/NEW YORK POLICE DEPARTMENT) – Etan Patz vanished in 1979 in New York on his first walk alone to the school bus stop.
He’s thought to have been killed at what was then a deli.
His body’s never been found. He was officially declared dead in 2001.
Thirty-six years later a man on trial for his murder has walked free after jurors failed to agree a verdict.
