Kidnapping Victim Found 18 Years Later While on parole, a sex offender kidnapped an 11-year-old girl, had two children by her and kept all of them in backyard isolation for 18 years. That's the claim of authorities in Antioch, California east of San Francisco. In a phone call with a Sacramento TV station, Phillip Garrido has admitted the 1991 kidnapping and is being held without bail, while Jaycee Lee Dugard, now 29, is in a motel with her two children. Police say she's been re-introduced to her mother. Jaxon Van Derbeken is covering the story for the San Francisco Chronicle.
