HAYWARD, Calif. -- Philip and Nancy Garrido, the couple convicted in the rape and abduction of Jaycee Dugard, are being questioned by police investigating the kidnapping of another young girl more than two decades ago.
Michaela Garecht, 9, was abducted from a grocery store parking lot in Hayward in 1988.
A suspect description of the man seen taking Michaela is similar to a photo of Phillip Garrido in the late 1980s.
At the time, Garrido was living in a half way house 20 miles from where Michaela was taken.
After Dugard's discovery in 2009, Hayward police searched the Garrido compound for possible clues to Michaela's disappearance.
But they found nothing.
Hayward police told reporters when they met with the Garrido's last week the couple denied any involvement in their case.
They said they will interview them again after going over details of their first meeting.
Authorities have also investigated Garrido's possible connection to the abduction of another Bay Area girl.
Ilene Misheloff disappeared from a street in Dublin on January 30th, 1989.
Both Ilene and Michaela were believed to be abducted by a Caucasian male driving an American-made gold car.
Phillip Garrido was sentenced to 431 years to life in prison in June for abducting Dugard in 1991 and holding her captive for 18 years at his Antioch home.
His wife Nancy was sentenced to 36 years to life in prison.
