A baby that was kidnapped from a Florida hospital has been found.
South Carolina police came to a Walterboro home after receiving tips that a teen living there may actually be a baby that was kidnapped from a Florida hospital reports the Sun. DNA taken from the teen living at the home revealed she was actually Kamiyah Mobley who had been abducted from the then named University Medical Center in Jacksonville, Florida in 1998.
Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said Friday DNA analysis identified the 18-year-old woman, who never knew that her birth name was Kamiyah Mobley. Further investigation revealed that fraudulent documents were used to establish the woman’s identity, reports the New York Post. At a Friday news conference, Sheriff Williams said the victim began to have an inclination beginning a couple of months ago that she might have been kidnapped.
Authorities have arrested 51-year-old Gloria Williams of Walterboro, South Carolina, on charges of kidnapping and interference with custody.
The baby’s mother, Shandra Mobley who was 16-years-old at the time said the woman was dressed as a nurse with a blue floral smock and green medical scrubs. She told her that the baby needed medical attention, and walked out with the baby and a purse over her shoulder, according to the Florida Times-Union. The police found that the woman had been with the Shandra for hours before taking Kamiyah.
For the time being Kamiyah’s current identity is not being revealed. Shandra Mobley has been informed her baby has been found.
