    Police 'sorry' for kidnap blunder


    <!-- S BO --> <!-- S IIMA --><!-- E IIMA --> <!-- S SF -->Police in the US have apologised for missing an opportunity in 2006 to find kidnap victim Jaycee Lee Dugard who was freed after 18 years in captivity.
    Phillip and Nancy Garrido have denied abducting Ms Dugard when she was 11 and keeping her in a shed as a sex slave.
    Police are now searching the Garrido home in Antioch for clues to several prostitute murders in the 1990s.
    Several bodies in the unsolved murders were dumped near an industrial park where Mr Garrido worked.
    <!-- E SF -->Ms Dugard and two children she bore in captivity in Antioch, 200 miles (320km) away from where she was abducted, were freed this week.

    <!-- END - caption -->
    <!-- end of the embedded player component --> <!-- END of Inline Embedded Media --> Phillip and Nancy Garrido denied 29 charges including kidnap, rape and false imprisonment when they appeared briefly in court in El Dorado County on Friday.
    Mr Garrido, 58, a convicted rapist and kidnapper, is suspected of fathering Ms Dugard's children while he kept her in his backyard.
    He and his wife Nancy, 54, are accused of abducting her in the town of South Lake Tahoe, in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
    Ms Dugard was bundled into a car in the county in 1991 as she waited at a bus stop on her way to school.
    Bus stop abduction
    Police visited the Garrido California home in November 2006, when a neighbour alerted them to suspicious behaviour there.

    But the investigating police officer only spoke to Mr Garrido and did not enter his property to carry out a search.
    "I'm first in line to offer organisational criticism and to offer my apologies to the victims and accept responsibility for having missed an earlier opportunity," said Sheriff Rupf.
    The suspects are being held without bail and a further court hearing has been scheduled for 14 September.
    'Like a marriage'
    Ms Dugard and her children are staying at a motel near San Francisco after being reunited with Ms Dugard's mother, Terri Probyn.
    Her step-father, Carl Probyn, saw his step-daughter being snatched from a bus stop in 1991.
    His now estranged wife told him that Ms Dugard appeared young but healthy.
    She added that her daughter felt "really guilty for bonding with this guy", Mr Probyn told CBS news.
    Mr Probyn said: "Jaycee has strong feelings with this guy. She really feels it's almost like a marriage."
    'A disgusting thing'
    Fred Kollar, undersheriff in El Dorado County, described finding a makeshift compound in the backyard consisting of sheds, tents and outbuildings.
    The true identity of the backyard's inhabitants only emerged after Mr Garrido was called in along with his "family" for a parole office hearing on Wednesday.
    <!-- S IBOX --> <!-- E IBOX --> Suspicions had been aroused when Mr Garrido, who has a printing business, was seen acting suspiciously towards the children as he tried to enter the University of California, Berkeley, campus to hand out religious literature.
    Diane Doty, a neighbour, said she often heard children playing in the backyard, and wondered why they were living in tents
    The alleged abductor has himself told a US TV channel that his story was "heart-warming".
    "It's a disgusting thing that took place with me at the beginning, but I turned my life completely around," Mr Garrido told KCRA television from El Dorado County jail.
    Court records show that Mr Garrido was convicted of kidnapping and raping a 25-year-old woman in South Lake Tahoe in 1976.
