In System Preferences -> Security & Privacy -> General, Location Services lists a variety of items that you can opt to give permission to accessing your location. I have listed in this pane an application which I deleted and which I am unable to find any other trace of on my computer. EasyFind usually works for me to find any hidden file, but it's not happening this time. I want to remove this item from the list of things I can grant location access to since it's not even installed anymore. How do I do this? Where is this item hiding?

Rebooting does nothing to change the situation.

The computer is a MacBook Air 2014 running the latest build of Yosemite. The application is called FaceBar and is a menubar app that runs a small version of FaceBook and I found a different app that does the same thing but in a way I like better so I deleted FaceBar and what I thought were all of its associated files with AppCleaner. As I mentioned, even while searching hidden files nothing with the name FaceBar appears but there it sits in Location Services.

    Please give more detail about your computer... model and OS version. What application? How did you delete it? Was it installed with an installer?...? – Flying Trashcan Dec 15 '14 at 14:11

    Also, rebooting the OS is a good thing to give the location daemon and system services a clean start without that App requesting location data. – bmike Dec 15 '14 at 14:22
