Jaycee Dugard’s First Public Grown Up Photo

October 14, 2009

(ChattahBox)—The horrified nation followed the news this summer of Jaycee Dugard’s rescue from 18 years of captivity, after being snatched off the street when she was just 11-years-old, by kidnappers Phillip and Nancy Garrido. Each disturbing story of Jaycee’s ordeal was accompanied by a photo of an adorable blond and freckled little girl. Now, People Magazine has the first public photos of Jaycee, as a 29-year-old woman.

Jaycee was raped by her sex offender captor and gave birth to two of his children, Angel, 15 and Starlit, 11. Jaycee and her two daughters spent most of their lives in squalid shacks and tents in the backyard.

People following Jaycee’s story have wondered what she looks like today. Surprisingly, Jaycee looks happy, young and pretty. Her hair has darkened from the straw blond shade she had, as a little girl, but her bright blue eyes and cute upturned nose remain the same.

Since her return to her family, she told People Magazine, “I’m so happy to be back with my family.” She and her daughters have been in seclusion, out of the public eye, since her rescue, living with her mother Terry Probyn, 50. And Jaycee has become reacquainted with her sister, whom she hadn’t seen since 1991.

According to a preview of the People Magazine interview, Jaycee has been enjoying her new life, cooking and riding horses. She says she is thinking of collaborating on a book.

The new issue of People Magazine, featuring Jaycee Dugard, will hit newsstands on Friday.
