Baby Gabriel Case

Missing Arizona baby’s mom Elizabeth Johnson seeks release from jail

PHOENIX – An Arizona woman awaiting sentencing for a conviction in her son’s disappearance has asked a judge to release her from jail on her own recognizance.

A jury found Elizabeth Johnson guilty last week of custodial interference, conspiracy to commit custodial inference and unlawful imprisonment in the December 2009 disappearance of her then-8-month-old son, Gabriel.

The child has never been found.

Johnson faces a sentencing range of two to nine years.
Her lawyers are seeking probation.

She is being held on a $1 million cash bond.

Johnson told the boy’s father that she killed Gabriel and dumped him in a trash bin in San Antonio, Texas.

She later recanted and told police she gave the baby to a couple at a park in the Texas city, but she never provided names.
