The Bakersfield Police Department and Kern County search-and-rescue team are looking for clues related to "Bakersfield 3" victim Micah Holsonbake.

Holsonbake, who was last seen March 23, Baylee Despot, who went missing April 25, and James Kulstad, who was killed April 8, have become known as the "Bakersfield 3."

A source also told Eyewitness News on Thursday that an independent DNA test done on an arm found in the Kern River over the summer confirmed that it belonged to Holsonbake.

Officers said Saturday's search is an attempt to find further clues to the disappearances.

Anyone with information regarding any of the cases is asked to contact Detective Garrett at (661) 326-3504 or Kern Secret Witness at 322-4040.
