 In 1972 a seven-year-old boy named Steven Stayner was abducted while he walked home from school in Merced, CA. His case drug on and went unsolved for so long, most people gave up any hope that Steven would ever be found alive. In 1980 Steven Stayner was found...alive. For over seven years-from age seven to the fourteen-the boy had been held captive by a child predator named Kenneth Parnell.

This is the Bakersfield connection to that story.
