A US girl kidnapped aged 11 has been found after 18 years in captivity.

Jaycee Dugard, now 29, has spent all her time living in isolation in a shack in the backyard of a house owned by her alleged abductor, Phillip Craig Garrido.

He allegedly fathered two children with her.

What happened in the intervening years is just starting to be revealed, as Al Jazeera's Monica Villamiza reports.
