Where is Gabriel Johnson?
The vehicle belonging to the mother of missing 8 month old, Gabriel Johnson has been found outside a San Antonio, Texas hotel this evening. The car is being processed for evidence, but there were no obvious signs of violence.
Elizabeth Johnson, 23, abducted her son and was arrested in Miami, Fl. last week after she failed to appear for a custodial hearing in Phoenix, Arizona. The little boy was not with her when she was arrested.
Gabriel’s father, Logan Scott McQueary, told authorities the mother had threatened the little boy in the past. He had previously filed a protective order against her after she “tore apart a baby crib, took a knife and cut up baby clothes, his (MceQueary’s) clothes, the couch, and smashed windows of the apartment and a television set.” That protective order was dismissed when he tried to reconcile with her. (are you kidding me???)
Documents also say that in a request for custody of Gabriel, filed by McQueary on Dec 14, Johnson hid the boy and accused McQueary of taking him. The child was found several hours later with friends of Johnson’s. McQueary stated that “She has said several times in the past she doesn’t want the baby, has yelled and screamed at him when I would go to work, I would put him in his room and when I would come back 5 hours later, he would still be in the room with no changed diaper and crying. I would ask her what she was doing, and she would just yell at me and say, ‘shut that thing up’.”
After Johnson took Gabriel, she texted McQueary that she had murdered the child. She told McQueary that Gabriel was “dead and blue colored” and that she put him in a bag and dropped him in a dumpster. She said she was leaving the country and would tell him where the baby’s body was when she was safely gone.
McQueary said that he just recently found out that Johnson had been trying to have the baby adopted by a couple she met on an airplane, and when she tried to get him to sign adoption papers, he refused saying he wanted his son. The couple has come forward and are not considered to be involved in Gabriel’s disappearance at this time. Tempe Police Sgt. Steven Carbajal said they were receiving conflicting information that Johnson tried to sell Gabriel or give him away, and that she is not helping them in any way to recover the child. He has not ruled out murder, although McQueary, who has know Johnson since Jr. High, has said he doesn’t believe his son is dead.
Gabriel was born May 3, 2009 and went missing December 27, 2009 from Tempe, Az. The little boy is 2′ tall,weighs 20 lbs., has light brown hair and blue eyes.
Anyone with information regarding Gabriel or his whereabouts is urged to call Tempe Police at 480-350-8311 or Silent Witness at 480-948-6377.
This just breaks my heart. I look at Gabriel’s smiling face with Santa Claus above, and then at the second picture where his little eyes look so sad, and it makes me want to cry. I pray they find this precious little boy alive and unharmed, and that they put this sorry excuse for a mother and a human being away for the rest of her life.
