The Daily Press (Timmins) - - WORLD NEWS -

JACK­SONVILLE, Fla. — A new­born girl stolen from a Flor­ida hos­pi­tal 18 years ago has been found alive in South Carolina, where po­lice ac­cused the wo­man who raised her of kid­nap­ping.

Jack­sonville Sher­iff Mike Wil­liams said Fri­day DNA anal­y­sis iden­ti­fied the young wo­man, who never knew that her birth name was Kamiyah Mob­ley. He said she’s in good health but un­der­stand­ably over­whelmed.

Po­lice ar­rested 51-year-old Gloria Wil­liams of Wal­ter­boro, S.C., on charges of kid­nap­ping and in­ter­fer­ence with cus­tody. The sher­iff said the wo­man’s birth fam­ily is re­joic­ing, but how and when to re­con­nect with them is up to the young wo­man.

She was only eight hours old when she was taken by a wo­man pos­ing as a nurse from Univer­sity Med­i­cal Cen­ter in 1998.
