A verdict has been reached in an infamous New York City kidnapping case nearly thirty-eight years ago, after a little boy vanished while walking to the school bus.

FOX's Tonya J. Powers reports from New York:

A jury has found Pedro Hernandez of New Jersey guilty of murder during a kidnapping in the Etan Patz case. Hernandez was a convenience store clerk in Patz' neighborhood when the boy, who was just six-years-old, went missing in the summer of 1979.

Patz became one of he first missing children ever pictured on milk cartons. It was a retrial for Hernandez, he had confessed, but his lawyers said the admission was the imaginings of a mentally ill man.

The previous trial was declared a mistrial when all but one juror agreed to convict.
