The story of Jaycee Lee Dugard looks like it was taken from a nightmare. She was kidnapped in 1991 when she was just 11 years old, she was never found for 18 years. But now, she surfaces, walked into a police station and revealed her identity. She is now 29 years old. Here is the detail of Jaycee Lee Dugard's kidnapping (from CharleyProject.org):

Dugard was last seen walking to her school bus stop on Washoan Boulevard in her hometown of South Lake Tahoe, California on June 10, 1991. A gray two-tone 1980 mid-sized Ford or Mercury sedan, possibly a Ford Grenada, Mercury Monarch or Mercury Zephyr, made a u-turn on the street where Dugard was walking between 8:05 and 8:15 a.m. An unidentified man and woman were inside the vehicle. The woman grabbed Dugard and forced her inside the car, then the vehicle sped from the scene.

Dugard's stepfather heard her scream and witnessed the abduction from inside their house and proceeded to chase the vehicle while riding a bicycle, but the suspects were able to escape. Dugard has never been seen or heard from again. She was only about 150 yards away from her home when she was abducted.

Sketches of the female suspect in Dugard's abduction are posted below this case summary, along with a sketch of the vehicle. The woman is described as having long black hair and a dark complexion. The suspect was approximately 32 years old in 1991 and stood five feet, five inches tall.

Investigators believe Dugard may have been taken across the state line into Nevada after her abduction. There was also a sighting of her in Fallen Leaf, California, about three miles from where she was taken. Dugard's biological father was quickly ruled out as a suspect; at the time of her abduction, he did not even know where she was living.

I could imagine the pain that Jaycee's mother and stepfather have carried in their hearts for 18 years. To be deprived of your child for so long, to have your parenthood stolen away from you is the most painful thing that could happen to a mother. Now, Jaycee is reunited with her mother and stepfather, I don't know how they feel, how the try to catch up with each other. Imagine the lost years--18 long years of catching up needs to be done.

Two persons are now being held in connection with Jaycee's kidnapping--Philip Garrido and his wife Nancy. Garrido is a convicted sex offender. More on this later, story is developing...
