Bay Area police are searching Philip Garrido’s home and adjacent properties for evidence of two kidnappings in the late 1980s similar to the abduction of Jaycee Dugard, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Nine-year-old Michaela Garecht was kidnapped in 1988 from nearby Hayward, while 13-year-old Ilene Misheloff was taken 2 months later in Dublin. Hayward and Dublin police are searching the area.

“Original agencies that were on the properties searching were not familiar with our cases,” a Hayward official says. “We're taking another shot at the properties to see what we can find.” The two departments are even considering tearing down the Garrido home to search underneath. “We are working with Contra Costa County and the people who have conservatorship of the property to see if that's possible,” a Dublin official says.
