APRIL 26, 2017: A teen was found alive in North Carolina and she is 18 years old. Her name is Kamiyah Mobley. A woman kidnapped her when she was a newborn baby in the hospital. It has been almost two decades since she was missing. She is now old enough to know who is her birth mother is, right! The woman who kidnapped her was Gloria Williams. She got arrested for kidnapping. Kamiyah felt sorry for her and she said, “My mother raised me with everything I needed and wanted. My mother is no felon”. The police have been searching for her since 1998 when she was first missing. When Kamiyah found out that Gloria wasn’t her real mother, she got in touch with her real parents after the police told Kamiyah they found her. Gloria has two of her own kids. So now Kamiyah is with her birth mother living the way she was supposed to.
