ST. JOSEPH - New York police appear to be close to solving the murder case of Etan Patz.  Pedro Hernandez has confessed to killing the six-year-old boy 33-years-ago today (Friday).

However, Patty Wetterling of St. Joseph, who's son Jacob was taken by a gunman in October of 1989, says there's still a long road ahead for the Patz family.

She says she still holds out hope that Jacob's case will also be solved.

Investigators spent two days in June of 2010 digging up land on the farm near where Jacob was taken, but that did not lead to any arrests in the Wetterling case.

This also happens to be National Missing Children's Day.
