I am from Northern California and I just heard about it.  I am about the same age as Jaycee, and I remember being afraid when I was a child and heard about it.  Any news on who abducted her, or what’s happened to her in the last 20 years??

Wow, makes you really want to know how she got away, how they kept her hidden and what happened in the intervening time.  I really hope that it’s her.

How sad, I hope that it is her on one hand but on the other, I am afraid of everything that has happened all this time, if it is her the abductees may have told her they would harm her family or something like that if she came forward.

Wow.. what a miracle. The article says that the parents have arranged for a meeting. I wonder what must be going through their minds.

I think her stepdad was even a suspect for a long time.  The emotional toll of this must be massive.

@Mrs. Spring: I watched it earlier today, it’s on hulu right now if anyone wants to see it.  I didn’t find it hard to watch because Jaycee is so strong, honest and open about the horrible things that happened to her.  I also can’t believe how “normal” she seemed, too.  They show her therapist in parts of the show, and I’m sure that these past couple of years of therapy have enabled her to move forward with her life.  I’m guessing her therapy/recovery will be a lifelong thing.  She seems so thankful for her life now, and doesn’t want to waste any of her energy holding onto any hate.  It’s really remarkable.

SO heart breaking! I cannot imagine going through all that for so long as such a young age. It does suprise me how “normal” she seems but I’m sure she’s got a lot of support and she does seem like a very strong women. I want to read her book.
