In Memory of Etan Patz

On May 25, 1979, 6-year-old Etan Patz grabbed his school books and gave his mother a goodbye kiss before leaving to catch the bus to school. Etan’s mother was never to see him again. In the months and years that followed, Etan became the symbol for lost children all over America. Then, in 1982, President Reagan proclaimed May 25, the anniversary of Etan’s disappearance, as National Missing Children’s Day. Each year since, the U.S. Department of Justice has held a ceremony to commemorate missing children and to honor men and women across the nation who have worked tirelessly to recover missing children and reunite them with their families. Sadly, Etan was never found, but National Missing Children’s Day continues to be a fitting tribute to his memory.
