Unbelievable Discovery

I'm in complete shock right now!!

I'm sure you all have heard about Jaycee Dugard who was kidnapped 18 years ago from South Lake Tahoe, that she has been found alive. What wonderful news that must have been for her family. It is absolutely shocking that after all these years she's been alive this whole time. I'm sure this has to be such a bittersweet moment for her family though. On one hand, happy she is alive and well but on the other hand, sad that they have missed out on 18 years of her life.

I'm disgusted by the whole situation. To even think that he was married and his wife being in on this and allowing this to go on as he fathered two children with this young girl. I'm appalled!!



Also, the fact that she has been living in the very town I grew up in (however, do not live in now but still too close for comfort!) is so very disturbing in itself. And, to think that just a few weeks ago I drove by the house that backs up to the house she was living in, or rather....the backyard she was living in, is so very upsetting.

I even ate breakfast a few times recently at the cafe which is on the corner right down the street from where she was this whole time. That poor girl! It is so sad to think that all this was going on and no one was able to help her all this time. Well, justice is now being served!! Too bad it took this long though. I bet she is so happy this nightmare is finally over!

It is unbearable to think what this girl or her children have dealt with and will continue to deal with! It is so sad! I teared up reading the article about it. I am so glad they were found and are finally free from those people!

I am so glad she's safe, but that poor girl. What an ordeal to live through.

A tragic story of not just the loss of her innocence but the poor children she had as well. They will never be unscarred.

Prayers for her.

I am still in shock by this whole thing. And to think it only took place 5 minutes from my home.......

It's very hard to comprehend how some people can treat others, sometimes. I feel so sad for her, but I hope she can get on with life on some level.

I read the news too, so shocked. I can't believe such a thing will happen on our human. The poor girl, glad she is safe now.

Prisoners have it better than she did. And dogs. No punishment is good enough for them. They should be locked up in a backyard until they die.
