Real Crime - - They Stole Her Innocence -

The sim­i­lar­i­ties sur­round­ing the dis­ap­pear­ance of Michaela Garecht and that of Jaycee left in­ves­ti­ga­tors won­der­ing if twice- con­victed kid­nap­per Gar­rido, with his predilec­tion for young girls, might be be­hind the ab­duc­tion of an­other Cal­i­for­nia child.

After Jaycee was res­cued, po­lice im­me­di­ately be­gan search­ing the Gar­rido prop­erty to see if any clues about the miss­ing nine- year- old girl would be un­earthed.

Michaela went miss­ing on 19 Novem­ber 1988 in Hay­ward, Cal­i­for­nia, three years be­fore the ab­duc­tion of Jaycee. She van­ished in broad day­light, taken by a man in a white T- shirt who was de­scribed by wit­nesses as a white male in his 20s. He had what was de­scribed as acne or pock­marks on his face and shoul­der- length, dirty blond hair. He was around 1.83 me­tres in height and had a slen­der build with fox- like, blue eyes.

When po­lice com­pared Gar­rido to the sketch they saw a dis­tinct re­sem­blance. How­ever, the con­victed pae­dophile de­nied any in­volve­ment in the young girl’s dis­ap­pear­ance, and no clues ty­ing him to her dis­ap­pear­ance were un­cov­ered. Po­lice con­tinue to search for an­swers.
