Jaycee Dugard Recalls Reunion With Mother on ‘Primetime’ [VIDEO]
On a special edition of ‘Primetime’ Sunday, Diane Sawyer interviewed Jaycee Dugard, who was held captive for 18 years after being abducted at age 11 by a convicted pedophile and his wife. During her captivity, Dugard gave birth to two daughters, both of whom were fathered by her kidnapper. Dugard was rescued by authorities in August 2009.
Mother Terry Probyn said she was stunned when notified over the phone that her daughter was alive and well. “Unbelievable. Absolutely unbelievable. And then it was just disbelief. I said, ‘No, you’re joking. Don’t do this to me. This is not funny,'” she said.
“I was crying, you know, when you’re crying and you can’t speak,” said Dugard, taking a shuddering breath. “I just said, ‘Come quick.'”
