'My Mother Raised Me With Everything I Needed... She Is No Felon': Teen Snatched From US hospital 18 Years Ago By Woman Dressed As A Nurse Defends Abductor

Kamiyah Mobley is found alive in South Carolina 18 years after kidnapping
Kamiyah Mobley, now 18, (left in main image, and right) was found alive and well in South Carolina on Friday being raised as Alexis Manigo by the woman who allegedly kidnapped her from a Florida hospital when she was a baby. The 51-year-old woman she thought was her mother, Gloria Williams, (inset right and right in main image) has been arrested and charged with kidnapping. 

The teenager took to Facebook to defend Williams on Friday as news of Williams' arrest spread. 'My mother raised me with everything I needed and most of all everything I wanted,' she wrote. The mystery of Kamiyah Mobley became a national sensation when she was taken from her mother Shanara Mobley's (left) arms at the University Medical Center in Jacksonville in July 1998.

Williams had suffered a miscarriage about a week before she drove the three hours from South Carolina to Florida and abducted baby Kamiyah, Walterboro Live reports
Jacksonville police said the teenager found out on Friday morning that the woman who raised her in Walterboro, South Carolina her whole life was not her real mother.
Within hours, Kamiyah was able to reconnect over FaceTime with her birth parents Shanara Mobley and Craig Aiken who cried 'tears of joy' after a detective told them their baby had been found.


Williams, who also has two biological children who grew up with Kamiyah, will be extradited back to Florida and is being held without bond, according to Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams.
Kamiyah, who has graduated high school and is believed to have a steady boyfriend, was allowed to spend a few emotional moments with Williams in court on Friday.
She cried 'Momma' through the caged window of a security door after Williams waived extradition to Florida, News4JAX reports. 
Williams could face up to life in prison if convicted. 
The news came as a shock to neighbors who have only ever known Kamiyah to be Williams' daughter. They say Williams seemed like a normal person who was employed as a social worker, volunteered and attended church every Sunday.
'She wasn't an abused child or a child who got in trouble. But she grew up with a lie for 18 years,' Joseph Jenkins, who lives across the street, told the Associated Press.
Investigators are currently speaking with Williams' family to learn more about the abduction. Authorities have not yet determined Williams' links to Jacksonville.
