NEW YORK (AP) - Police in New York say a man has confessed to killing 6-year-old Etan Patz, who disappeared 33 years ago, but his body may never be found.

Police say Pedro Hernandez, who used to work in a city convenience store, admitted luring the boy from his school bus stop in 1979 and choking him to death in a basement.

Hernandez says he put the boy's body in some trash.
