    Nancy Garrido has pleaded not guilty to 29 felony counts of kidnapping, forcible rape and false imprisonment in connection with the 1991 case.

    Nancy Garrido has a message for Jaycee Dugard. She misses her and her two daughters.

    The woman accused of kidnapping Jaycee Dugard and helping keep her captive in a backyard compound for 18 years sent the message via her new attorney Thursday.

    Nancy Garrido was in an El Dorado County courtroom Thursday, where a judge set her bail at $20 million and appointed a new attorney, Stephen Tapson, to represent her in the high-profile case.

    After the Thursday hearing, Tapson passed along a message from Garrido.

    "Mrs. Garrido asked me to tell you to tell -- or at least if Jaycee, or Angel or Starlet see this -- that she misses them and loves them, and wishes she could see them." Tapson said. "But obviously that's not going to happen for awhile."

    Garrido and her husband, Phillip, have both pleaded not guilty to 29 felony counts of kidnapping, forcible rape and false imprisonment in connection with the 1991 case. His bail was set at $30 million in September. The couple is due again in court on March 25.
