Jaycee Lee Dugard was just 11 years old when she was kidnapped by strangers off of a South Lake Tahoe street.  Her abduction sparked a flurry of local and national media coverage, and it was the subject of an episode of America's Most Wanted.  In spite of the attention, her whereabouts remained unknown for nearly two decades.
 
In August 2009, a man named Philip Garrido met with his parole officer in Concord, California, along with his wife Nancy, a young woman they called "Alyssa," and two young girls.  After repeated probing, "Alyssa" revealed the truth, and Garrido finally confessed.  She was Jaycee Lee Dugard, and Garrido had been her abductor for more than half her life.
 
What came out in the days and weeks that followed was the kind of horror none could imagine.  Garrido detained and raped Jaycee, fathering her two young girls.  She was only 14 when she gave birth to her first child.  Jaycee and her children were kept in backyard sheds.
 
Jacyee's reunion with her family moved readers from across the country.  With LOST AND FOUND, acclaimed true crime writer John Glatt tells the full-length story of a horrifying abduction, the will to survive, and a family's commitment to finding their daughter.
