At the same time, Slovakia remembered that it has been 30 years since five-year-old Ľuboš Bednár disappeared from the front of his house on August 27. Despite the efforts of the police, no information has arisen to help find him. It is one of the oldest and rarest cases in the history of Czechoslovak criminalistics where the disappearance of a child has not been clarified, TASR reported.
