Details: On June 10, 1991, 11-year-old Jaycee Dugard left her South Lake Tahoe home to go to her bus stop when she was abducted by an unidentified couple. The woman grabbed her, pushed her into the car, and drove away. Her stepfather tried to catch up to the car by riding on her bicycle, but was unable to make it and she was never seen again.

She had two daughters with Garido and had assumed a new identity, probably due to Stockholm Syndrome. She and her daughters had been living in tents in the Garidos' backyard. On August 25, 2009, her daughters went with Garido to a local college, where their actions were noted as suspicious. The next day, the three were brought to Garido's parole office, where she came forward and told them that she was Jaycee Dugard.
Jaycee and her daughters were reunited with their family, while Phillip and Nancy Garido were arrested. Phillip pled guilty to several charges related to the abduction and rape, and was given a 431 year sentence; Nancy got 31 years to life. The Dugard case has become extremely famous because after the amount of time that Jaycee was missing, she was found alive.
