Five years ago today, Jaycee Dugard was found alive nearly 20 years after being kidnapped at age 11. One of the most notorious missing persons cases in recent memory, Dugard was taken from a street in her South Lake Tahoe, California, neighborhood in 1991. She was held captive in a backyard shed by Phillip and Nancy Garrido for 18 years, giving birth to Phillip Garrido's daughter at age 13 and being raped repeatedly. She was reunited with her family in 2009. Here are several other cases of missing people who have later been found alive:
