Jaycee Dugard’s family had expressed their relief over the acceptance of guilt of Dugard’s captors, as reported by various news sites, April 28 & 29, 2011.

Dugard’s captors Philip and Nancy Garrido had kidnapped her on June 10, 1991, which was witnessed by her step father, Carol Probyn. Her disappearance had sparked national interest and people joined in the search, but 11-yr old Dugard was never found.

Jaycee Lee Dugard had grown in captivity and bore Phillip Garrido two daughters. They were in one compound and Jaycee was introduced as the elder sister of the two girls.

There were instances when police officers had been there but the back portion of the house was always overlooked. Even Garrido’s constant encounters with the cops because of several crimes including a similar incident in 1976.

Jaycee Dugard was only discovered in August 2009, when Garrido reported to his then parole officer. The police noticed the “unusual behavior’ of Dugard and the girls, and suspected something so they questioned them separately. That was the time that they finally told the truth about Dugard’s story. Dugard’s family was promptly informed and the two captors arrested. After 18 years in captivity, she was finally released.

The recent guilty plea of the Garrido’s on April 28 has brought relief to Dugard’s family as relayed by the family’s attorney.
