Police in California have been searching a house where a woman was apparently held prisoner for 18 years after being abducted as an 11-year-old. The police say the abducted woman, Jaycee Dugard, and her two children ? allegedly fathered by her captor, convicted sex-offender Philip Garrido ? had been living in concealed outbuildings and tents. Police also say the children have never been to school or seen a doctor.
In 1991, 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard was forced into a car on her way to school and not heard of again... until she walked into a San Francisco police station earlier this week with her alleged abductor and their children. Following this extraordinary case is Clint Van Zandt, a former FBI profiler who served as a special agent with the FBI for 25 years. He's now President of Van Zandt Associates, a risk and threat assessment group.
