A 29-year-old woman who was abducted in 1991 at age 11 has been found [trigger warning]:
Jaycee Dugard is in good health, el Dorado County sheriff's office said in a statement, but provided no further details.

Meanwhile, in Contra Costa County, another sheriff's spokesman confirmed that that a man and a woman have been arrested in connection with the case but could provide no other details.

CNN affiliates have reported that Phillip Garrido, 58, and his wife, Nancy Garrido, have been charged.

Phillip Garrido is a registered sex offender and listed on the Department of Justice's Megan's Law page because of a previous forcible rape charge.
I cannot even imagine what this woman has been through; my heart breaks for her. But she has been reconnected with her mother and stepfather, who she remembers and with whom she'll soon be reunited. Her stepdad, who saw Jaycee getting snatched by two people in a vehicle as she walked to her bus stop, says that finding out she's still alive is "like winning the lotto." Blub.
