Shawn was kidnapped by Michael John Devlin on October 6, 2002, when he was 11-years-old. He was missing for four years and three months. The turning point happened when Devlin decided to kidnap a 13-year-old boy named Ben Ownby. That was on January 8, 2007, but a 15-year-old neighbor saw Ben crying inside the trucl as it raced away. The police were contacted, and the two boys were rescued.
