A dig that began Monday on Philip Garrido's property in Antioch, California has been fruitless so far. Detectives say they are digging in targeted areas where cadaver dogs and scientific equipment indicate the possible presence of human remains. Two bone fragments have been found on the property during the search, but analysis indicates they are too old to be related to the cases under investigation.
Detectives are looking for evidence that could connect Garrido with the disappearance of two young girls. Michaela Garect went missing in 1998, Ilene Misheloff was last seen in 1999. Despite a lack of conclusive evidence so far, Hayward Police Lt., Chris Orrey says she thinks the leads that brought them to the property are very strong. She encourages the public to continue to call in any information they think might be helpful. Digging on the property is expected to continue Tuesday, but if nothing is found by the end of the day the search will likely be terminated.
Philip Garrido, is accused of holding Jaycee Lee Dugard captive, since her abduction from South Lake Tahoe 18 years ago. Investigators who spoke with Dugard in hopes of learning more about Michaela and Ilene say she was unable to provide any specific information.
