SACRAMENTO,
Calif. - A woman who was 11 years old when she was abducted in 1991
outside her South Lake Tahoe home has been found alive, sheriff's
officials said Thursday.

The
woman walked into the police station in Concord in Northern California
and said she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, the victim of the abduction 18
years ago, said sheriff's Lt. Les Lovell of the El Dorado Sheriff's
Department.

"We're
99 percent sure it's her," Lovell said. He said DNA tests were being
conducted. It was not immediately clear when she had surfaced at the
station.

Lovell
said Concord police did an investigation after the woman surfaced, and
he received a call Wednesday from investigators who had tentatively
identified her as Dugard.

"Her
family has been contacted and they are in the process of arranging" a
meeting, said Lovell, who was a detective assigned to help investigate
the kidnapping in 1991. "We are very confident at this point in time
that it is her."

Witnesses
reported that a vehicle with two people drove up to Dugard and abducted
her while her stepfather was watching on June 10, 1991, the Sheriff's
Department said in a news release Thursday.

The investigation has been ongoing since she was abducted.

Lovell said two people were in custody in connection with the case, but he would not elaborate.

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