National Missing Children's Day is being observed simultaneously with Memorial Day.

It's held in honor of Etan Patz, who went missing on May 25, 1979. Etan's body was never found. A recent trial in the case ended with a hung jury.

Robert Lowery of the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children says more than 470,000 children are missing across America.
