The New York City police commissioner says a person who's in custody has implicated himself in the disappearance and death of Etan Patz (AY'-tahn payts) 33 years ago.
Commissioner Raymond Kelly said in a statement that further details would be released later Thursday.
The 6-year-old vanished while walking to a Manhattan bus stop 33 years ago.
The April excavation of a Manhattan basement yielded no obvious human remains and little forensic evidence that would help solve the decades-long mystery of what happened to Etan Patz (AY'-tahn payts). The 6-year-old vanished while walking to a bus stop in 1979.
