Sacramento, Calif. (AP) – Police say a convicted sex offender and his wife have been arrested in the kidnapping of an 11-year-old in 1991 who recently walked into a Northern California police station.

Police say 58-year-old Phillip Garrido and his 54-year-old wife Nancy Garrido were arrested in the kidnapping case Wednesday. The Megan’s Law Database says Phillip Garrido has a conviction for rape by force or fear.

The woman came into a San Francisco Bay Area police station and said she was Jaycee Lee Dugard, a blond, ponytailed girl when she was abducted as she headed to a school bus stop 18 years ago.

The woman was in good health. It was not immediately clear when she had surfaced at the station.
