Authorities investigating two missing girl cases say that cadaver dogs have picked up a scent that may indicate there are buried remains in the backyard of a Northern California couple already charged in a kidnapping. Alameda County Sheriff's Department spokesman Sgt. J.D. Nelson said Thursday two dogs alerted at a site in the backyard of Phillip and Nancy Garrido.

The couple is charged with the 1991 kidnapping of Jaycee Dugard.

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.
