Suspect in Hillsborough kidnapping cold case captured

HILLSBOROUGH, Calif. (KFSN) -- Hillsborough police believe they've captured a kidnapping suspect who's been wanted for more than 20 years.

Kevin Lin is now in custody, after being arrested in Southern California Friday night. He is suspected of abducting then nine-year-old Kristine Chiu and holding her for ransom in 1995.

The kidnappers gave up on their plan after learning the girl's wealthy parents were in Taiwan. She was found unharmed inside a hotel at San Francisco International Airport.
