Cops believe 1991 kidnap victim found alive

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) -- Sheriff's officials say they believe they've found a woman alive after she was kidnapped as an 11-year-old in 1991 outside her South Lake Tahoe home.

Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado Sheriff's Department says a woman came into the Concord police station and said she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, the victim of a 1991 abduction.

Lovell says deputies are 99 percent sure it's Dugard. He says DNA tests were being conducted.

Witnesses reported that a vehicle with two people drove up to Dugard and abducted her while her stepfather was watching.

Lovell says two people have been taken into custody.

The sheriff's department has scheduled a news conference to discuss the case later Thursday.
