If Jaycee Dugard is alive, she would be 29 years old. The FBI is not saying if she's been found, but a Concord police officer told an ABC7 sister station that a woman walked into a county facility on Wednesday claiming to be Dugard.

Investigators left the Concord Police Department saying very little about the Jaycee Dugard case, only that there will be more information Wednesday.

Jaycee Dugard was 11 years old when she was reportedly kidnapped in South Lake Tahoe 18 years ago. The FBI distributed lots of flyers with her picture on it in 1991. Investigators wouldn't say why they were in Concord following this case, so many years later.

When asked "Is Jaycee Dugard in there?" by ABC7's Lilian Kim, an investigator simply replied, "I cannot talk about it, I'm sorry."

Jaycee's disappearance prompted a massive, widespread search. The nationally televised show, "America's Most Wanted," publicized her abduction. Authorities say Jaycee was walking to her bus stop, less than 200 yards from her home, when her stepfather saw a couple drag her into their gray car.

Her mother, Terry Probyn, made repeated pleas for her daughter's safe return. In 1991, Probyn said "She's a pretty, young innocent child and you may like her, but we love her too, and it's time she comes home to her family. Her sissy has been asking for her and she needs to be with us."

Stay with ABC7News.com as more information comes out about this case in the following days. More information is expected to come out on Thursday and the El Dorado County Sheriff's Department plans to hold a press conference.
