Sept. 18, 2009— -- Authorities have hauled away dumpsters full of trash and debris along with potentially damning evidence from the property of Jaycee Dugard's accused kidnappers, but authorities say they found no definitive sign of two other missing girls.

Police from Hayward and Dublin, Calif., have been leading an intensive search of Phillip and Nancy Garrido's Antioch, Calif., property since last week after deciding there were enough similarities between Dugard's kidnapping and the disappearances of 9-year-old Michaela Garecht and 13-year-old Ilene Misheloff.

But Phillip Garrido is still considered a potential suspect in both abductions and authorities are now tasked with combing through several items removed from his home and backyard including clothing, photos and Garrido's writings.

A bone fragment found earlier in the search was found to likely be a human tooth, though judged too old to be relevant in either case. More labwork has been ordered.

Phillip Garrido is being held on $30 million bond. Nancy Garrido's lawyer has not requested bail. Both have pleaded not guilty to 28 counts, including kidnapping and rape, in the Dugard case.

Police have said there were several similarities between Dugard's 1991 kidnapping and the others, including method of abduction. And the grey Ford sedan impounded from the Garrido's lot matches witness descriptions in all three abductions.

Michaela Garecht was yanked into a car in 1988 after she and a friend took their scooters to the corner store, the first time they'd been allowed to do so on their own.

That friend, Katrina Rodriguez, told "Good Morning America" earlier this month that she recognized something in Garrido's eyes when she saw him on television after Dugard was found.

"I see that same intensity," Rodriguez said. "That creepy look that I don't think I'll ever forget."

Ilene Misheloff's January 1989 disappearance was not as brazen, but witnesses have reported seeing a similar car in the area around the time she vanished while taking a shortcut home from school.
