“I’ve made myself known (to her) so if she elected to see me, she knows where I’m at,” Slayton, 68, sadly told The ENQUIRER on the eve of five-year anniversary of her rescue.
Authorities searched for the girl but the case went cold – and no one discovered that she had been imprisoned on the Garridos’ property. Dugard was also raped by ex-con Phillip and gave birth to his two daughters.
In 2011, the Garridos pleaded guilty to Dugard’s kidnapping and sexual assault. They are serving life in prison.
Dugard has recounted her terrifying ordeal in a book and media interviews, but according to Slayton, she hasn’t contacted him.
However, as Radar reported Dugard’s rep issued a statement in 2010 that said Slayton “showed no interest” in Dugard from the time she was born -- and also didn’t help in the search effort for her.
