SANTA ROSA, Calif., April 25 (UPI) -- A California mother whose 11-year-old daughter was kidnapped said she spent 18 hellish years until her daughter was found.

Terry Probyn held an audience of some 300 people spellbound as she told the story of her daughter Jaycee Dugard, who was abducted in South Lake Tahoe the morning of June 10, 1991, The Santa Rosa (Calif.) Press Democrat reported.

Dugard was kidnapped by Phillip Garrido who fathered her two daughters during the 18 years she was held in captivity.

Garrido is serving a 431-year prison sentence for kidnapping, rape and false imprisonment. His wife received 36 years to life for aiding him.

Dugard was awarded $20 million by the California Legislature based on her claim state parole agents failed to adequately monitor Garrido.

Probyn, 53, said she bears "an overwhelming sadness and terrible anger" over the years of separation from her daughter.

She also said she never believed authorities who told her the chances of finding Jaycee after 72 hours had passed were "slim to none."
