COPS IN the Bay Area are taking a fresh look at Phillip and Nancy Garrido in the unsolved kidnapping of 9-year-old Michaela Garecht nearly 23 years ago. Michaela, cute and blonde, like Jaycee Dugard, vanished in November 1988 and has not been  seen since.
Capt. Darryl McAllister of the Hayward Police said: "This is one of those cases that nags at you throughout your whole career." Detectives questioned the couple last week about the Garecht case. There were many striking similarities between Jaycee and Michaela's case, cops said.

McAllister said: "They could almost be sisters. Both of the interviews lasted over two hours. Neither of the interviews revealed any direct link to the Michaela Garecht case."
However, at the time witnesses say a man snatched Michaela in front of a grocery store, taking her away in a car resembling the one Phillip Garrido had at the time. Sketches of the suspect look like  Garrido. At the time, he was living in a halfway house 20 miles away.
With any luck, Phillip Garrido may still end up with a needle in his arm and a one-way ticket to hell.
