After years and years of searching, the cold case of abducted baby, Kamiyah Mobley, has now been reopened due to her true identification coming to light. Mobley was recently found in Walterboro,South Carolina, and told her whole life has not been what she thought.

Only hours after her birth in Jacksonville,FL, Mobley was taken by a woman who claimed to be a relative of the family. The abductor was only seen through hospital video and was disguised in women’s scrubs. She was abducted by Gloria Williams, a now 51 year old woman who lives in South Carolina.

According to the authorities, Williams was charged with kidnapping and interference with custody. Apparently she also used fraudulent documents to disguise Mobley and make sure no one knew her true identity.

The woman Mobley longed to believe was her mother has been arrested in association with the abduction.

As any teenager would be, Mobley is having a hard time with the transition of her life. A South Carolina Sheriff stated, “She’s taking it as well as you can imagine,” he said. “She has a lot to process. She has a lot to think about.”

For the last 18 years, Mobley has seen this woman as her mother. In a press release, Mobley is seen with her mother, on opposite sides of a prison window, saying, “I love you, Mom.”

As for Mobley’s biological mother and father, they are ecstatic that their daughter has been found alive and healthy. Shanara Mobley, who was 16 in 1998, told investigators that a woman she thought was a nurse entered her hospital room and she never saw her daughter again,until now.

Her biological family was ‘overwhelmed with emotion,’ the sheriff says and they are glad they get a second chance to be with their daughter.
