Joan Curry never thought she would see her granddaughter again.  So when her daughter, Terry Probyn, called to tell her that Jaycee Lee Dugard was alive, she could barely believe what she was hearing.  Curry told PEOPLE Magazine that her daughter is not letting Dugard, who was kidnapped over 18 years ago and imprisoned in a backyard compound less than 200 miles from her ski resort town, out of her sight.  ”She’s got them all gathered around her and that’s the way it’s going to stay for a while,” Curry says.  She also adds that her daughter is “very encouraged, very optimistic about the outcome of all of this.”
