Jaycee Dugard: Amanda Berry & Missing Women Need Time To ‘Heal’
“These individuals need the opportunity to heal and connect back into the world. This isn’t who they are. It is only what happened to them,” Jaycee, 29, told PEOPLE in a statement.
She added, “The human spirit is incredibly resilient. More then ever this reaffirms we should never give up hope.”
Amanda Berry & Other Women’s Heroic Rescue
Like Jaycee, who gave birth to two daughters while being held captive by Phillip and Nancy Garrido, Amanda allegedly gave birth to a child, now 6, during her time in captivity.
Authorities are currently investigating the kidnapping. They’ve arrested 52-year-old Ariel Castro, who owns the house the girls were found in, along with his two brothers.
