Woman Held For 10 Years Speaks Out
Santa Ana, CA (CBS 2/FOX 28) - The California woman who was held captive for ten years is speaking out for the first time.
She was taken when she was 15 from her mother's home by her mother's then boyfriend; Isidro Garcia.
Police say Garcia made her move into an apartment, marry him and have a child.
Police are now saying the woman was from Mexico and was in the country illegally, which is why Garcia threatened her with deportation if she ever contacted them.
The woman doesn't want to be identified but says she is grateful she finally found the courage to come forward.
The woman finally became free when she re-connected with her sister through Facebook.
