Several agencies are looking for a registered sex offender who led them on a chase up and down Highway 99 in Bakersfield with his kids. CHP Officer Robert Rodriguez says they lost Stephen Houk when he turned the RV into an almond orchard off Merced Avenue north of Bakersfield last night when the heavy dust creased by the motorhome forced them to stop. Tuesday’s chase began in Hollywood, the three-year-old son and 11-month-old girl were rescued and are back home in LA. Houk is considered armed and dangerous.
