This case I had never heard of

On CNN there’s an open letter to the Cleveland girls by Ronique “Pepper” Smith. She was abducted by her babysitter at the age of four and didn’t get out of the situation until she was twelve. She got a nasty case of PTSD out of the experience, and didn’t reunite with her biological mother until she was well into adulthood.

I don’t know the details of this case and I’m not sure the police even investigated the case at all. The fact that it was 1974 and Ronique appears to be black or biracial probably didn’t help. But even twenty years later, kids have been kidnapped by their baby-sitters and nothing has been done about it.
