Though Dugard and the two children she had with her alleged kidnapper, Philip Garrido, ultimately were rescued thanks more to the quick thinking of a police officer who met the suspect in August than to the image, similar age-progression photos have been instrumental in the recovery of more than 900 missing children.
The parole officer telephoned Garrido and asked him to come in for a parole meeting. Later that day, Garrido arrived at the meeting with his wife, the two girls, and Dugard, still referring to her as "Allissa." After being separated from Garrido for a further interview, the three were discovered to be Dugard and the two children that she had borne. Garrido and his wife were then arrested by local police. An FBI agent put Dugard on the telephone with her mother, Terry Probyn. Dugard retained custody of her children and was soon reunited with her mother.
