An 18 year nightmare is over for a California woman who was kidnapped from a bus stop when she was a child.

El Dorado county police say Jaycee Lee Dugard was kidnapped in 1991 when she was just 11 years-old, has been alive and the man responsible is in custody.

Police say Dugard had two children with her abductor, Phillip Garrido, who is being held on numerous charges. His wife also arrested.

Garrido was convicted back in 1971 for rape and kidnap.

He was able to hide Dugard from the world with an elaborate set up behind his house.

Police say Dugard and her children have never been to school, to a doctor, and were kept in complete isolation.
