Elizabeth Johnson, Mother of Missing 8 Month Old Son Gabriel Johnson Jailed on Felony Charges Kidnapping, Child Abuse …


23 year old Elizabeth Johnson, the mother of missing 8 month old Gabriel Scott Johnson, has been charged with kidnapping, child abuse and custodial interference. The Tempe Police Department states that Elizabeth Johnson is being held at the Maricopa County jail on the three felony charges after being extradited from Florida. Gabriel Scott Johnson has been missing since December 26, 2009.


Police say she’s being held on a cash only $1.1 million bond.

Authorities are trying to determine what happened to Johnson’s 8-month-old son Gabriel, who was last seen with her in San Antonio last month. They are asking anyone who has the baby to turn in him to a fire station or hospital.

Authorities are calling a Scottsdale couple “persons of interest” in the case.

The couple has said they befriended Johnson at an airport and that she wanted to give her son up for adoption.

Authorities are calling the Smith’s, a Scottsdale couple, “persons of interest” in the case. The Smiths told police they befriended Johnson at an airport and she offered to give her son to them to adopt, but the baby’s father didn’t agree. The Arizona couple, persons of interest, in the case of a missing baby took polygraph tests on Friday.

Jack and Terri Smith spent hours at the Tempe, Ariz., police station answering questions as part of the police investigation into the disappearance of 8-month-old Gabriel Johnson.

Police said Thursday they believe the Smiths, who had wanted to adopt Garbriel, may know more about the missing child’s whereabouts than they’re telling investigators.

      This is one woman I would personally waterboard myself to find out where that precious baby it.

      And if that didn’t work, I am sure I could come up with something else.

      Sorry if I am posting too much on this, but this egg donor is really making me angry. Get this quote regarding her mood last evening when she talked to her grandfather.

      “Johnson did call her grandfather, Robert Johnson, who told NBC News that his granddaughter was very upbeat.

      ‘More than cheerful,’ he said of her mood. ‘Happy. I guess in her mind, she’d accomplished her goal, which was to adopt her son — give him to somebody.’”

      WHO gave her the exclusive right to give Gabriel away? She can’t mitigate the father’s rights just because she wants to.

      Please refrain from using “egg donor” as a slur. It’s an insult to those who have used an egg donor to become parents themselves.

      #4. DD –

      I can not tell if you are being sarcastic, but I hope so. If not then you must take every descriptive phrase literally including many vulgar or profane words I could have chosen for this woman other than what I did.

      Elizabeth Johnson is


      I am surprised George Anthony is not out tackling
      poor unsuspecting camera operators for HLN trying
      to squeeze the bottom of the toothpaste tube for
      another 15 minutes of GRAMPY JO JO TIME on this

      The major difference between the Elizabeth Johnson
      and Casey Anthony cases…

      …is that Gabriel’s father is a young man.

      Caylee Anthony’s father was an old dirty one
      that liked to play switchy-roo with his gas cans.
