Their Antioch home has become a focal point of investigators reviewing outstanding kidnapping cases in the San Francisco Bay area.

Nelson is not saying where in the yard the dogs picked up a scent. He also cautioned about false positives.

Investigators plan to scan the site Friday with high-tech equipment.
