The Contra Costa County Sheriff’s Department has been investigating the property of alleged kidnaper Phillip Garrido since his arrest in August, as they have been trying to find clues in the cases of two other girls who went missing several years ago.  Garrido, who is charged in the kidnapping and rape of South Lake Tahoe girl Jaycee Lee Dugard, is being held in a Placerville jail with his wife, Nancy.  The Sheriff’s Department today said that while they did find bone fragments on the property, forensic experts did not find any human DNA in them.  

The other two cases are that of Michaela Garecht and Ilene Misheloff.  Garecht was snatched outside of a supermarket in 1988 and Misheloff disappeared in 1989.  Both went missing near the ski resort town of South Lake Tahoe, where Dugard was when the Garridos allegedly took her from her bus stop.
