    Investigators went over the Garrido property with a fine-toothed comb.

    Northern California investigators probing two old kidnapping cases say bone fragments found on the property of a man charged in a separate abduction are likely from animals.

    Hayward police Lt. Chris Orrey said Thursday that preliminary test results from the fragments collected on Phillip Garrido's property show they are likely not human.

    Hayward police searched the Garrido property last month for any links to the kidnapping of Michaela Garecht in 1988. Dublin authorities also combed for evidence as part of their probe into the 1989 disappearance of Ilene Misheloff.

    Garrido and his wife, Nancy, have been charged with 29 counts for allegedly kidnapping Jaycee Dugard in 1991 and holding her captive in a shabby backyard compound on their property near Antioch for 18 years. Both have pleaded not guilty.
