Ken Slayton, 63, says he dated Dugard's mother for about a month in 1979 when she became pregnant.

He says he only learned Dugard's mother had a child through friends. Now that Jaycee has been found alive, he says he wants to be a part of her life.

"We understand that Jaycee and the girls have suffered greatly and may need time before we are reunited, however we are reaching out now and hoping see hear's us so we can take the first step to confirm she is my daughter," said Slayton.

Slayton says he's willing to take a paternity test. He has enlisted the legal help of attorney Gloria Allred.
