Stepfather: 'Jaycee feels guilty'

Carl Probyn, the stepfather of abducted US woman Jaycee Lee Dugard, has said she "feels guilty" for bonding with her alleged kidnapper.

Phillip Garrido, 58, is being held on suspicion of various kidnapping and sex charges. His wife Nancy Garrido, 54, is also being held in custody in California.

Speaking to ABC's Good Morning America, Mr Probyn, who witnessed the abduction on 10 June 1991, said it had "ruined" his family's lives and described how he himself had been a suspect after she disappeared.
