Teen kidnapped as newborn in 1998 found alive, well in SC

A teenager was reunited with her family after being abducted from a hospital in Jacksonville, Fla. She did not comment.

Aiken said that even though she is filled with hope about their reunion, she is also a little anxious. Mobley's mother was 16 years old at the time. "They've taken footprints from 15 babies and have done DNA testing on two others".

The abduction of Kamiyah Mobley from a newborns ward was so shocking that the police stopped every train out of Jacksonville, a city in north-eastern Florida, and searched each one, row by row, in 1998.

"I know now he heard my prayers", her grandmother, Velma Aiken, said upon learning the fate of her long lost granddaughter.

Walterboro native Gloria Williams, 51, was arrested Fridaymorning, Williams said. There is no statute of limitations in the case and she could face life in prison. "She appears to be normal and healthy".

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said members of Kamiyah Mobley's biological family, who were not present at the news conference, were " elated" by her discovery. Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said the teen has a lot to process. A nurse told WJAX that the hospital changed it security procedures over the years.

Manigo reportedly thought that Williams was her biological mother until Friday morning when police gave her the news.

The president-elect called it a 'great meeting'. " China and US relations should be strengthened and more friendly", he said. The job pledge comes amid tensions between China and the incoming United States administration over trade and Taiwan.

It is believed Williams suffered a miscarriage shortly before July 10, 1998, when a woman wearing a blue floral smock and green scrub pants took eight-hour-old Kamiyah in a white blanket and disappeared. It followed about 2,500 tips over the years. "She has a lot think about, as you can imagine", Sheriff Williams said.

Jenkins says the girl police say Jenkins passed off as her daughter seemed to be happy.

"All I know are tears of joy and happiness and a good feeling, knowing that she's all right and looking good", Ms Aiken said.

Hiers came to the Colleton County Detention Center to see Williams on Saturday.

"I just hit it off with Gloria".

"She's very intelligent, smart as a whip", Mr Boatwright said. She was living under a different name established through fraudulent documents, the sheriff said.

"At the fish market, the hair dresser, the gas station, they're all talking about it", said Ruben Boatwright, who said he has known Ms Williams for about 15 years.
