The call proved to be monumental: Garrido's agent was shocked when security officers mentioned his children, as his records showed that he had no children. Authorities were quickly called and soon after, on August 26, 2009, Phillip and Nancy Garrido were arrested. Two days later, the Garridos were charged with 29 felony counts, including rape and false imprisonment.
More than 18 years after she was abducted, on August 26, 2009—a beautiful, sunny day in South Lake Tahoe, California—Jaycee Dugard was reunited with her mother, Terry Probyn.
Soon after, the Dugard family learned from California Deputy Inspector General Dave Biggs that due to Garrido's failed parole supervision, they would be awarded $20 million by the State of California. Additionally, Phillip Garrido was named a strong suspect in several other California kidnapping cases.
In July 2011, Jaycee Dugard published a harrowing memoir, A Stolen Life, about her years spent with the Garridos. In March 2012, in an interview with Diane Sawyer, she spoke about her recent activity, discussing her happiness to be back with her family and her struggle with "learning" how to be free. During the interview, she recalled being overly joyed after ordering pizza during a recent trip to New York City: "Just walking down the street. With everybody. It was my favorite moment," she said.
