Long one of my favorite made-for-TV movies, I just found it on DVD. Such a sad story, which has only gotten more tragic in the years since the movie was made.
I thought it was interesting that they updated the end (it was made in 1989) with convicted kidnapper Kenneth Parnell's 2004 conviction for trying to buy a child, but not the murders committed by Steven's brother, Cary Stayner, in 1999. To be honest, it's actually rather creepy watching the character of Cary in the movie, knowing what happened later.
