Girl Missing For 18 Years ‘Found Alive’

A woman kidnapped nearly 20 years ago in California when she was a girl of 11 has apparently turned up alive and well at a police station in San Francisco.
Jaycee Lee Dugard was abducted from outside her house in South Lake Tahoe in 1991 as she was walking to the school bus stop.

Police are currently carrying out DNA tests on the woman but say they are “99% sure” it is Miss Dugard.

The El Dorado Sheriff’s department is to hold a news conference later, where it is expected to confirm the woman is Jaycee Lee.

Two people are being held in custody over the kidnapping.

The missing girl’s family have spoken to her and are travelling to San Francisco in the hope of being able to positively identify her.

Jaycee Lee’s stepfather, Carl Probyn, described it as “like winning the lottery”.

“To have this happen where we get her back alive, and where she remembers things from the past, and to have people in custody is a triple win.”

Mr Probyn, 60, witnessed his stepdaughter’s kidnapping 18 years ago from the drive of their home.

She was bundled screaming into a car and driven away. He gave chase on his bicycle but failed to catch the vehicle.

The case attracted national coverage and was featured on the TV show America’s Most Wanted.

Police sources have revealed the kidnappng suspects are Phillip Garrido, 58, and his wife, Nancy, 55, who live near Antioch.

Phillip Garrido is being held on suspicion of kidnapping, rape, lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, sexual penetration and conspiracy.

Nancy Garrido has been detained on suspicion of conspiracy and kidnapping.

The couple were arrested after they walked into the police station with Ms Dugard to make an inquiry, authorities said.

They would not say what it was but it apparently aroused the suspicions of a police officer.

He ran a check on Garrido and found he was a registered sex offender with a conviction for rape. Records show he also has a conviction for kidnapping in 1980.

Neighbours of Garrido have described him as “weird”. One told the San Francisco Chronicle there were bars on the windows and doors of his house and he believed he could talk to God.

His next-door neighbour Haydee Perry said that when Garrido helped her jump-start her car a month ago, he had a pre-adolescent girl clinging to him in a manner that struck her as odd.

The girl told Perry that Garrido was her father and that she had older sisters, including one who was 28 – a year younger than Jaycee is believed to be now.

“She stayed close to him at all times,” Perry said of the girl. “It wasn’t normal behaviour. She had a blank stare on her face.”

It has emerged Garrido has a blog entitled ‘Voices Revealed’ and has been running a church from his home.

His last blog was posted on Friday August 14, 2009. In it he writes: “… the Creator has given me the ability to speak in the tongue of angels in order to provide a wake-up call that will in time include the salvation of the entire world.”

    Dear John, Big Daddy G mentioned that you have a question for me and here is the answer: past+present=future. The reason I won’t be returning anytime soon is because so many of you turned the world into a big mess and I ain’t no cleaning lady.
