NEW YORK (CBS) By now you likely know the story of Jaycee Lee Dugard, who was kidnapped from a South Lake Tahoe school bus stop in 1991.
If police have it right, Jaycee was forced to endure 18 years of horrors including rape and impregnation by her captor Phillip Garrido and was forced to live in a squalid tent in Phillip and his wife Nancy Garrido's backyard.
But this story, unlike so many others, might just have a happy ending. Jaycee has emerged with two healthy daughters, all of whom have recently been reunited with Terry Probyn, Jaycee's mother. And Jaycee's alleged tormentors Phillip and Nancy Garrido, are now in custody and facing 29 charges including kidnapping and rape.
But the road ahead for Jaycee and her daughters will likely be long. Rehabilitation in these types of cases is not easy, say experts. And Jaycee's daughters have never gone to school or a doctor.
So a fund has been setup by the Soroptimist International of South Lake Tahoe. The fund hopes to help Jaycee Lee Dugard and her family get back on their feet after this 18-year ordeal.
The family is accepting donations here:
