Most people probably won’t remember the first face of a child who appeared on a milk carton way back in 1979. His name was Etan Patz and the case has remained unsolved. Well, that might just have changed, thanks to Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance who reopened the case in 2010. Etan’s parents urged him to re question Othniel Miller one of two suspects in the disappearance. Seems Mr Miller performed a sudden concrete flooring renovation on the basement shortly after Etan’s disappearance. New York Police are currently digging up the basement as we speak after cadaver-sniffing dogs picked up the scent of human remains. The other suspect, convicted pedophile Jose Ramos (now in a Pennsylvania prison) may also have had access to the basement as he was working for Miller at the time. Etan’s parents have never moved from their home, in the hope their son would one day find his way back and their phone number remains the same as Etan knew it off by heart. Fingers crossed there will be closure for the family.

No need to panic good people of Japan, but it seems the radiation levels in a small area around Tokyo’s Setagaya ward are higher than those around Fukushima. Officials searching for the source found several glass bottles in a cardboard box in someone’s basement which sent the radiation detectors into a friggin fit. Oh, but don’t worry, the local government says there is nothing to worry about and the radiation poses no immediate health threat. Well, that’s alright then!
