Abducted Jacksonville Florida girl found after 18 years

If your child were abducted in July 1998 (some 18 years ago,) and that child was recently found; as parents and as the almost grown child, what would you do and how would you react?  Kamiyak Mobley (renamed Aexis Manigo) was taken from the University Medical Center (now UF Health Shands JAX) maternity ward by a woman dressed up as a nurse (See story here).

Found on Friday, January 13, 2017, Kamiyah is not holding any ill-will towards her abductor (Gloria Williams), whom she has known as “Mother” all this time.  The young teenager was also happily reunited in SC with her birth parents (Shanara Mobley and Craig Aiken), on Saturday Jan. 14th.

Kamiyak visited the incarcerated Williams on that Friday and made this statement according to Moberly’s Facebook page and a Daily News report which stated, “She raised me with everything I needed and most of all everything I wanted,” Mobley wrote. “My mother is no felon. The ignorant ones won’t understand that.”  Williams had reportedly suffered a miscarriage about a week before she drove from South Carolina to the Florida hospital, where she allegedly snatched the newborn, according to Walterboro Live.

There remains so many unresolved issues and so many emotions, yet the questions that remain unanswered are: What will be the outcome of all parties concerned?  How will each person live their life from this point forward?  And finally: What would you have done?
