◼ Jaycee Dugard Found After 18 Years, Kidnap Suspect Allegedly Fathered Her Kids
◼ Kidnapped Jaycee Lee Dugard Found 18 Years Later cbs5.com
Jaycee Lee Dugard, a girl who was kidnapped nearly two decades ago from South Lake Tahoe at age 11, was found alive and well in the East Bay, authorities said Thursday. A registered sex offender from Antioch and his wife were arrested in the kidnap case and officials said the man confessed.
...Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado County Sheriff's Office said the case unfolded on Wednesday when the now 29-year-old woman came into the Concord police station with her two alleged captors.
"We are very confident at this point in time that it is her," said Lovell, who described Dugard as being in good health.
Dugard was reunited Thursday afternoon with her mother, Terry Probyn, who was overjoyed to learn that the daughter she feared dead was actually alive and well.
Dugard's stepfather, Carl Probyn, said the news was like winning the lottery.
...Ironically, federal prison officials said Phillip Garrido was on parole for a conviction in another kidnapping case at the time Dugard was taken.
He was convicted of kidnapping in U.S. District Court in Nevada, and in March 1977 was sentenced to 50 years in prison. He was later transferred and paroled in Northern California in 1988, officials said.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation on Thursday collected evidence at the Garridos' gray, one-story home home at 1554 Walnut Avenue in Antioch, which is where authorities indicated Dugard raised her two girls in a tent complex that had been set up in the backyard.
"None of the children have ever been to school, they've never been to a doctor," El Dorado County Undersheriff Fred Kollar said. "They were kept in complete isolation in this compound, if you will."
