alexismanigonbcssKamiyah Mobley’s saga goes on as her ‘mother’ has now entered a ‘Not Guilty’ plea in a Florida court. Mobley, born Alexis Manigo was abducted from her teenage mother’s hospital 18 years ago. The kidnapper, Gloria Mobley was arrested last month on child abduction charges. It’s believed that Kamiyah herself initiated the discovery after confronting the woman she knew as her mother. reports:

Mobley was just eight hours old when Williams allegedly posed as a nurse and stole her from a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida, in July 1998. Following her kidnapping, she was apparently raised as Williams’ daughter under a false identity, authorities say.

Williams has been charged with first-degree kidnapping and third-degree custodial interference. She is scheduled to appear again in court in April. Her attorney could not be reached for comment.

Mobley was discovered alive and well in Walterboro, South Carolina, in January. Investigators confirmed her identity via DNA, after they were led to her by tips through the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. Williams was arrested soon after and extradited to Florida to face charges.

While she remains behind bars, Mobley — who goes by Alexis Manigo — has openly defended the woman she believed to be her mother. She told ABC News, “[Williams] loved me for 18 years. She raised me for 18 years … I will always love her.”

Manigo has since reunited with her biological parents and says that despite growing up with any knowledge of them, that she will give them a chance.

    Can’t blame the kid for defending the only “mother” she has known for 18 years, however what Ms. Williams did was beyond selfish and definitely criminal. She has damaged this girl and her birth family for life.

    How could you plead not guilty, whats wrong with you? You took away 18 years of the real parents lives which they can never get back.shame on you.

  3. The fact of the matter is that the baby was stolen away from the parents. How can you plead not guilty. Was she insane? You know, mentally health? I get it that the girl loves “her mom” but a crime has been commited here.

    She is not this child’s mother, she is her abductor. Let’s not cute this up, she is a kidnapper who didn’t care about the biological family’s pain at losing their baby. I understand how this young lady may feel but the truth is this woman is a criminal.
