#MissingChildrensDay THREAD
41 years ago today, 6-year-old Etan Patz disappeared on his way to school in NYC. On the 4th anniversary of Patz’s disappearance, President Reagan proclaimed May 25 National Missing Children’s Day in the U.S.
In 2012, a man named Pedro Hernandez confessed to kidnapping and strangling Etan Patz the same day he disappeared. Five years later, Hernandez was convicted of the murder. Patz’s body has never been recovered. #MissingChildrensDay
In 2001, #MissingChildrensDay received international designation. Last year, the Italian soccer club @OfficialASRoma joined the effort, using the media attention surrounding new player signings to bring attention to open missing children cases.
One of the biggest missing children’s stories in the U.S. right now is the case of missing Idaho kids Tylee Ryan and JJ Vallow, who haven’t been seen since September 2019. #MissingChildrensDay
Six-year-old Relisha Rudd has been missing since 2014. Despite few leads since Relisha disappeared while staying in a homeless shelter with her mom and her younger brothers, the community has kept the search for her alive. #MissingChildrensDay ietv.co/3b5Np7e

It was a crime of passion that had every New Yorker rapt with attention in the summer of 1972. 3 armed men entered a Brooklyn bank, thinking it would be a straightforward heist, but fate had other plans. The event would go on to inspire a classic film. #NewYorkGritty 🎞️🧵:
1/ On Aug. 22, 1972, John Wojtowicz, Salvatore Naturile & Robert Westenberg attempted to rob a bank in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Gravesend. Unbeknownst to them, the money in the vault had already been collected earlier that day, leaving the branch with half the funds expected.
2/ Within minutes of the robbers entering the bank, a teller triggered an alarm that alerted police to the crime unfolding. Cops dashed to the scene on Avenue P in and formed a perimeter around the bank. 1 of the 3 would-be robbers fled once police showed up.
