NEW YORK (CBS) "Jaycee Dugard please step forward," pleaded Cheyvonne Molino, one of Phillip Garrido's business associates who says in recent years kidnap victim Jaycee Lee Dugard and her daughters lived in their accused kidnappers' home, not in tents and sheds in the backyard as authorities have claimed.

Molino also wants Jaycee to clear her good name now that authorities have raided three of her properties, she says, in search of child pornography.

Molino told CBS affiliate KPIX San Francisco that she had been in the Garrido home and backyard and saw nothing suspicious, and that from what she could tell, the girls and Dugard slept in the house.

"They told you guys that that woman and her daughters were held captive til the day he released them. That was not true. And I was the only person that had visual proof that they had been out of that," Molino told KPIX.

Molina also called out Jaycee to tell what she felt was the truth.

"Tell the media, tell the government exactly what happened to you," Molino told reporters as part of an open message to Dugard, who was kidnapped at age 11 in 1991 in South Lake Tahoe, Calif.

Dugard and her two daughters, 11 and 15, allegedly sired by Garrido, are currently sequestered with family members who she has not seen for the past 18 years.

Molino told the Early Show's Julie Chen in an interview that she knew Garrido well. "I met his daughters, I watched them grow up."

Garrido reportedly took one or both of the young girls with him as he toured clients of his printing business, either to discuss work or to hand out religious literature.

"We got to see them more and more over the summertime, three or four times a week," Molino told "Early Show" co-anchor Julie Chen. "They were very nice and polite. They'd come out and deliver water on 102 degree weather days with their dad, stay about 10, 15 minutes, and go to the next location."

On Wednesday, authorities raided three properties owned by Molino and her husband, Jim. Molino says they took DVDs, VHS tapes, and a laptop in search of child pornography connected to Garrido's case. Authorities did not say what they were looking for.

Sheriff's spokesman Jimmy Lee told CBS affiliate KPIX San Francisco that Jim Molino was on probation weapons violation so deputies could search his three properties without a warrant.

Authorities searched the Molinos' business, JM Auto Wreckers in Pittsburg, Calif.; as well as two homes where the couple resided in Pleasant Hill and Bay Point, Calif.
