Stolen baby found alive in U.S. 18 years after abduction

Tracy FergusonJan 16, 2017

It was a newborn kidnapping case which lay unsolved for 18 years, but Florida police have found the victim alive, living with who she thought was her biological mother.

Officials in Florida said she was found on Friday and that the SC woman she believed to be her mother had been arrested for kidnapping.

Her family have been notified about the break in the case but police have stressed that, as Mobley is now an adult, any reunion with them will have to be on her terms.

The sheriff's office says their investigation started when a tip was received from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

He said Kamiyah has had "some inclination" beginning several months ago that she may be involved in the case but otherwise "appears to be a normal 18-year-old young woman". Times-Union reporter Tessa Duvall tweets that Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams says he does not believe Williams was on the initial suspects list.

Mobley's biological family came up from Jacksonville, Florida, to meet with her today.

"I haven't seen her since that day was taken from the hospital", Aiken said.

She later wrote about Ms Williams on Facebook: "My mother raised me with everything I needed and most all everything I wanted".

Fifty-one-year-old Gloria Williams has been charged with kidnapping. "She has a lot to process", the sheriff said.

She said she still remembers seeing Kamiyah being taken by an unknown woman wearing a nurses outfit in the hours after she was born in July 1998.
