Jaycee Lee Dugard found alive after 18 years

Jaycee Lee Dugard was an 11-year-old girl who was kidnapped in 1991 as she was walking to a school bus stop in South Lake Tahoe, California. Dugard was kidnapped by a man and woman in a grey sedan as her stepfather Carl Probyn witnessed the kidnapping from the driveway of their home. On August 26, 2009, Dugard showed up at the Concord Police Department. According to Dugard's stepfather, Carl Probyn, two people were taken into custody. The 29-year-old woman spoke to her mother, Terry Probyn on the phone and said she "remembers everything." A press conference was scheduled for August 27, 2009.

The girl, now a woman of 29, will reunite with her mom Terry Probyn, today. Her stepfather, Carl Probyn and Terry broke up after the kidnapping. Carl, who was the last person to see Jaycee, said ""The FBI put me through the wringer, being questioned and having people say the stepdad did something," he said. "I have been kind of the villain these past 18 years."

Carl said Terry Probyn and their daughter Shayna, flew to meet Jaycee today.
