For more than 19 months, federal agents searched for heiress Patricia Hearst. She was kidnapped in February, 1974 by the Symbionese Liberation Army.
During her captivity, she fell in with her captors and even participated in a bank holdup. The FBI found her on this day in 1975. She was rescued and captured by agents in San Francisco.
Hearst was convicted for her role in the holdup in 1976. Her sentence was commuted to time served by President Jimmy Carter, but, the conviction remained. Then, in 2001, outgoing President Bill Clinton granted Patty Hearst a full pardon.
