There was media frenzy when the boys returned home. It was, what they dubbed as a wonderful miracle. However, the 14 years in captivity affected Stayner the most. He had changed but life was never normal for him ever again. In fact, he struggled a lot despite being surrounded by the family who loved him unconditionally.
