Jan. 5 trial date set for man charged with murder in case of New York boy missing since 1979

A man charged in one of the nation's most notorious missing-child cases is scheduled for trial Jan. 5 in New York.

Pedro Hernandez appeared Wednesday before a judge, who set the trial date and said the proceeding may take at least two months.

The 53-year-old New Jersey man is charged with murder in the disappearance of 6-year-old Etan Patz (AY'-tahn payts).

Etan disappeared while walking to his school bus stop in New York City on May 25, 1979. He was one of the first vanished youngsters featured on a milk carton, and his case helped mobilize a nationwide missing-children's movement.

Hernandez was arrested in 2012 after police got a tip. He appeared in court Wednesday, wearing an orange jail jumpsuit. He said nothing.

A pre-trial date was set for Sept. 18.
