The parents of murdered schoolboy Etan Patz have sold their SoHo loft - 40 years after their son vanished after leaving the home in one of America's most infamous missing child cases.

Stan and Julie Patz reportedly received $3.75 million for the property, located at 113 Prince Street.

Etan's disappearance sparked a nationwide manhunt and he became one of the first missing children to have his photograph splashed across milk cartons by the police.

His parents helped establish a missing children's hotline and the anniversary of his disappearance is marked by National Missing Children's Day.
