State Attorney General Eliot Spitzer is checking into the 1973 disappearance of two missing Brooklyn teens following an appeal by friends and relatives who charge that New York City and Sullivan County police botched the case and misled them.
In addition, the head of a state missing children's agency is expected to meet with family members to discuss what steps could be taken to help solve the 27-year-old mystery.
It was 27 years ago when teen friends Larry Marion and Mitchel Weiser, classmates at Brooklyn's John Dewey High School, bought tickets to attend a major rock concert in upstate New York.
But at the last minute, 16-year-old Larry's mother forbid him to travel to Watkins Glen to hear the Grateful Dead and others at 1973's Summer Jam festival.
"She completely flipped out," recalls Larry, now a 43-year-old music memorabilia dealer.
