Jaycee Lee Dugard Abduction: Phillip & Nancy Garrido Arrested
Jaycee Lee Dugard has turned up at an Antioch, California police station after having disappeared on June 10, 1991, and was brought to nearby Concord. (Jaycee Lee Dugard pictures, via updated FBI file) Jaycee Lee Dugard has been missing for 18 years. Jaycee Lee Dugard was last seen as an eleven-year-old girl on her way to a bus stop in South Lake Tahoe. The case was treated as an abduction, and was never solved. Jaycee Lee Dugard has met with her mother and stepfather, Carl and Terry Probyn, who are convinced that she's who she claims to be. Meanwhile, Phillip Garrido, a registered sex offender, and his wife Nancy Garrido were arrested in connection with Jaycee Lee Dugard's disappearance. (Phillip Garrido photo)
Phillip and Nancy Garrido admitted to keeping Jaycee Lee Dugard as a sex slave in their garage or garden shed, and face kidnapping and rape charges.
Now, at age 29, her story is considered credible enough that the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department and the FBI are investigating further.
The stepfather of Jaycee Dugard, told our Sacramento affiliate, "It's an absolute miracle if it is her. Can you imagine this after 18 years?"
During questioning by a parole officer, Garrido admitted to having abducted Dugard and said the two children were his, said Scott Kernan, undersecretary for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.
Though the police have not issued an official statement, court records reflect that two arrests have been made: Phillip and Nancy Garrido of Antioch.
Authorities are keeping mum until a press conference at 6 p.m. ET, but court records show that a search warrant was issued Wednesday for 1554 Walnut Ave., Antioch. Records indicate it is the address of Phillip and Nancy Garrido.
