Kamiyah Mobley Gloria Williams

Gloria Williams, the woman who kidnapped a newborn baby from a Florida hospital in 1998 and raised her as her own has been sentenced to 18 years in prison.



Kamiyah Mobley was only hours old when Williams snatched her from a Jacksonville hospital and raised her as Alexis Manigo in South Carolina.

Kamiyah, now 20, learned the truth about her real identity when she tried to apply for a driver’s license and was informed Alexis Manigo didn’t exist.

Kamiyah was reunited with her birth parents and paternal grandmother following Williams’ arrest in 2016.

“I can love my grandbaby as my own now,” paternal grandmother Velma Aiken told the Post and Courier outside the courtroom. She said she crossed paths with the kidnapper who was leaving the hospital with baby Kamiyah in 1998.

“I remain focused on mending my family,” Kamiyah’s father Craig Aiken told the Courier.

But Kamiyah, who attended every day of Williams trial, remains loyal to the only mother she knew. Kamiyah pleaded with Florida Circuit Judge Marianne Aho for leniency.

Judge Aho sentenced Williams to a year in prison for every year Kamiyah was missing.

In addition the 18 year sentence, Williams receives credit for 511 days she’s served since her arrest. She will also serve five years concurrently for custody interference.



  • sunni_daze

    Damn, they gave her a year for every year she had Kamiyah.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    I see why she had to steal a kid because no one would do her with that butter face not even with the lights off and paper bag over her face.

  • no name

    I have been waiting on her sentence. I hope Kamiyah is OK with the verdict.

  • no name

    Yep, basically.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I saw a story similar to this on lifetime with Keke Palmer.

  • BadAss Will

    Kamiyah not gonna be happy. She have anger problems that Iyanla was brought out.. Iyanla fucks up alot of people life.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Cant be out here stealing folks kids. The lives of everyone involved will never be the same.

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    I disagree, it’s worst looking bishes in Brooklyn.

  • Dr. P

    Iyanla, do not try and fix her life again. This child dayum near killT you. Technically you ain’t fixed nobody’s life anyway, so gone head and call her up…

  • Ain’t Misbehavin

    Iyanla stirs the pot… I would love to see the raw unedited footage of her shows. I’m sure it’ll show her egging folks on to the point of violence.

  • BadAss Will

    Yes will love to see it too.. But that girl was bout to beat her ass

  • no name

    Nope, that’s the sad part.

  • Nikkiknows

    Was this the one when the girl was yelling and calling her all kinds of b*tches?

  • 100milesperhour

    That girl was a live grenade. She would’ve exploded eventually (look how she spoke to her father). Iyanla wanted it to happen in a controlled environment. She got her temper from the diabolical baby thief that raised her.

  • sunni_daze

    Never.

  • Thingamajig

    The adoption process must be really difficult that she decided to kidnap instead.

  • candy

    Yup. That’s her. ?

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    She was (and still is) a pretty lady. You have high beauty standards.

  • cherrypie

    I remember when it happened. I just had my son who is now 20. I remember feeling so sorry for the family. Imagine waiting 9 months to have your baby only to come home empty handed. There are consequences and reprocussions to every bad decision we make. She has to know one day it would come out. This isnt the 1920’s. You need ID for everything these days.

  • Dr. P

    yep that’s her. Her daddy and her man were all kinds of ignant

    I have a few of Iyanla’s books but have never watched her show.

  • Yardgirl

    I would have ended up in a mental institution!! 9 months is damn near a whole year and the not knowing would have been torturous!! No winners in this sad case, not a one!!

  • Kemi

    The $1.5mil settlement her parents received from the hospital, where she was stolen is BS! Losing your child for 18years not having no clue of her disappearance or her existence must have been traumatizing. And they rewarded them peanuts… foh !!

  • Alextra Ballard

    They could have given her life.I guess 18 years will feel like a life sentence to her. How old will this heffa be when she gets out? Oh well. Now as for Kimiyah,she will remain loyal. kimiyah is young she just don’t get it. In time when she has a child of her own,and they commence to place that child in her arms maybe she will then see how her birth mother felt and how fu (ck) up the situation was with her been abducted.hopefully.

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    It’s easier for White people to adopt Black kids.

  • Yardgirl

    Could have been about Carlina White kidnapped from NY. That one was close to home as the kidnapper lived in New Haven CT. She got 12 years. Le sigh.

  • Miss Thang

    Justice has been served!

  • Prettybootnikki

    I’ve wondered if any blacks have successfully adopted any white children before??? There’s a white couple that lives close to me and they have adopted 2 elementary aged black girls. Makes me wonder though. Can you do a story about this one day soon Auntie??

    agreed bo money can replace the lost of a child but shit the should have been rewarded at least 75million for expected life

  • SoulfulLove

    Yes. I know of two personally.

  • RAE23

    OMG…My grandson was in Nationwide Children’s in Columbus. Security does not play there! You definitely cannot gain access to an elevator without proper visitation badges! It’s because of things like this. It’s so sad and devastating to steal someone’s baby.

  • RAE23

    I don’t think justice will ever be served here. It’s just sad!

  • Carrington

    I feel sorry for the girl (although she’s very unlikeable) because, although she was kidnapped, she was brought up in a loving home and her loyalty was to the only person on the planet she’d ever referred to as “ma”… and was being taken away from her. The birth mother tried to force her to be as mad at the abductor as she was, and that simply wasn’t going to happen. Birth mom showed up and thought that blood could break that bond – and it wasn’t going to happen – never. You just can’t show up out of nowhere and be like, “You know I’m your real mama…. come on. And f*ck that b(tch over there!” and have an expectation that the kid was going along with that. That lady was her mother, whether she stole her, or not, and she simply wasn’t going to choose you, or anyone else, over her. She was looking at birth mom like, “B*tch… that’s my MAMA!” – so she should’ve tried a different approach because hers caused more strife. All this chick knows is that her “Mama” is in jail and feels like the birth mother (a literal stranger to her) is the reason for it. Nobody wins here. Hide ya wife. Hide ya kids.

  • RAE23

    I am certain that girl is struggling something terrible. How is she ok with her ‘mother’ getting 18 years after finding out that she’s really not her mother. She can’t just turn the love for her ‘mother’ off . Talk about conflicting emotions. I simply cannot image how that baby feels let alone how she will cope with all of this mess. Prayers for all involved.

  • Kemi

    Exactly. They lost fundamental years with her, that can’t be redeemed. The family dynamic is messed up because she was stolen from them from a place, that’s suppose to be protective!

  • Soda

    Part of the reason for her loyalty may be that Kamiyah was mad when she found that her birth parents had spent the settlement money they received from the hospital—as if she was entitled to it.

  • pika12

    Keke’s movie was about Carlina White, who was kidnapped after birth at the hospital. The stories are so similar that they are easy to mix up.

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    THis story is sad mainly because how conflicted that young lady is with all of this ? I know that girl gone most likely go visit that lady for years to come and her biological mom will be upset with every visit. I pray they find peace

    This gif.. XD

  • https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1lo6u-UIbo Nancy Drew-Natural & Luv’n It!

    her bio mom will have to be the ‘adult’ in the situation, and if she really cares for Kamiyah, she’ll have to ‘show’ support for her even if it hurts her to do so. this is fugged on so many levels, smh.

  • Liah

    I have no sympathy for her!

  • Prettybootnikki

    Oh ok, awesome. I’ve just already wondered. Seems rare

  • KcoolMuziq

    The old saying is P—Y doesn’t have a face.

  • Tiff J

    This is such a f’d up and hard situation to have to deal with…. but the birth parents should’ve handled this VERY slowly. Birth parents should’ve treated the daughter the same way you would if you were meeting your child who had been put up for adoption. But the birth parents were never going to win as long as they were pursuing putting the kidnapper in jail.

  • Raquelle Dellaghetto

    She’ll be ok. Kim K will rescue her.

  • cherrypie

    Yep. Safeguards are in place for this very reason. They match and check the wrist band of the mother and child at least three times before they hand the baby over. This was 20 years ago and its much hard (Thank God) to get away from it nowadays. But as many kids out here looking for a good home, all up in the system and she stole a baby???…smh

  • SumthinSweeter

    Good! Saw the young lady on Iyanla and she is a complete mess. Sounds like there are issues with her biological mother also causing even more instability to the situation. Biological father was the only family it seems she can interact with without issue.

  • SumthinSweeter

    right on point too!

  • Cannelle

    Thanks for that information. I was going to ask to confirm. I don’t have kids, but some who do have told me that the hospital staff is not playing with this (good!).

    One friend even told me that the staff went out to their car to make sure that they had the proper car seat in the correct position, before letting them have the baby. Her daughter is now 7. I wondered if the hospital staff checks under the car hood as well?? LOL. Seriously, though. I am very happy for these checks.

  • YetAlive

    Iyanla tried it. That little girl was ready to head up with her old ass.

  • Cannelle

    This reminds me of another story. There are so many, it seems. I think it happened in Virginia (or D.C.?). The mother was very young, maybe 17 – 19 years old. The baby was days old. They were traveling by Greyhound. On the trip, another woman asked if she could hold the baby, to help the young mother out. The mother was tired and young and didn’t know any better. She gave the child to the stranger. Turned around… and they had vanished. This was 35 years ago and they still haven’t found the kidnapper or the woman who the baby may have become. After the abduction, when the young mother got home, she was blamed by the entire town. I think she had two other children since then, in the late 80s. Imagine having to grow up and hear all about your kidnapped sibling. A really sad story.

    She’s not trying to fix people’s lives just give them the tools to do so.

    As the old saying goes you can’t lead a horse to water and I found that out for myself last year and decided to drop a friend because I was wasting my time giving her advise.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    True, that girl along with her loyalties, and her emotions are confused as anyone in her situation would be.

  • BingBangBoom

    She got off easy. I was hoping for the full ride for her. I cannot imagine the emotional drain she put on this little girls family. Years of not knowing what happen to your daughter. She clearly brainwashed the child. #Iyanlafixmylife

  • Kemi

    Yup, you echoed my sentiments exactly!

  • FukkFolks2018

    I think that was the case here. Well The lady was caught here. But that baby was born out of Harlem Hospital

    You hit the nail on the head!! So sad

  • FukkFolks2018

    Carlina White. Maybe this girl was mad too tho. Smh. A mess. Both stories.

  • Soda

    You’re right, I knew it happened to someone, somewhere!

  • tintin

    and unfortunately that Kamiyah is a mess after seeing her on Iyanla, i don’t know how she can be helped. There are going to be issues with her due to what this woman did.

  • supastar

    plus 5 years for interring with custody.

  • sunni_daze

    Zamn… Oh well, don’t take people’s kids.

  • supastar

    True. you put that in perspective. I am sure its not easy for Kaymiah to turn her back on the lady who raised her. It a sad situation all the way around. I do believe that i probably would feel the same way as the biological mother felt. She has been hurting all these years not knowing what happened. That couldn’t of been easy for her.

  • FukkFolks2018

    I hope they can move on. I do think the birth parents tried to rush things. I get it though. I’m sure it was not malicious. Human nature. Prayers for all.

    They should have thrown her ghetto disrespectful as.s. hoodrat fake daughter Kam-shiit-yah in the cell right along with her. That little heffa, is a nasty disrespectful Jacksonville FL, hood rat!

  • supastar

    right. Sorry she couldn’t have any but others are off limits. She has been made an example out of.

  • Chocolate Bliss

    When I had my sons, you couldn’t even take them off the maternity floor. They had ID bracelets with a chip in them and an alarm would have been set off. It even shut the elevators down. I lived in a white area so I don’t know if that had something to do with it.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Whelp she got what she deserved. One year for every year she had her sounds about right to me. Both families suffer though. I hope Kamiyah and her family can heal and really become close and love one another.

  • xenaD

    Right?! Can you imagine

  • http://thedevereauxshow.com/ Ms.Devereaux

    Yep I agree even tho it would hurt me to my core if my child called her kidnapper mother and supported said kidnapper at the end of the day I would try and support my child. Her bio mom is falling out with her child over her choice to support this woman when she can’t see that her child is trying to cling to the only thing she knows man I know I wouldn’t take it well but I would smile and try to support them go to a kick boxing class and light my trainer up! Or that punching bag. Her mom thought once they reunited they would be mother and daughter and make up and catch up on lost time but she feels like her daughter is not acknowledging her by calling the other lady mom ????? It’s sad ?

  • the guest

    It’s evil that baby was kidnapped but she is mentally brainwashed and destroyed by ignorant criminals who have rationalized the crime of kidnapping. It does not negate the crime of kidnapping because the kidnapper and the kidnappers family took care of their victim. They don’t see the kidnapping as a crime and that is the problem. The child has been brainwashed to be complicit with her own victimization and its easier for her to rationalize than deal with the truth of the crime. The geographical environment where is from is prone to these crimes against children and a lot of ignorance. Susan Smith, the other mother who drove her kids off the bridge, and countless others. The south values ignorance as nostalgic and romantic. The young lady has no chance of ever getting better in her location and environment.

  • Strip Club Veteran

    This disrespectful ass bitch should’ve stayed in Jacksonville with her ghetto ass parents. She had a life way better than the one she would’ve had. Definitely didn’t like her spazzing out on Iyanla.

    This kid isn’t read for the New Yorker, Iyanla. This lady backs down to no one; not even DMX. She was about to get him!! Kamiyah needs guidance and a good ol fashioned butt whipping! Iyanla doesn’t “fix” people’s lives; she gives them the tools and the rest is up to them.

  • Malcom Flex

    Part of her healing and understanding the serious crime her kidnapper did is hopefully, marrying then having her own baby. That’s when she’ll have a breakdown and a breakthrough, once she feels that biological connection mothers have to their child, only then will she ‘get’ what really happened.

  • BloodBlood

    Ok

  • IamAllnatural

    Exactly, that’s the crazy bxxch she needs to curse out and want to fight. Kamiyah is out of control & needs some serious counseling.

  • Dora LaBelle

    I say she exposes the truth about people and their situations that they try to sweep under the rug rather than discuss. No, the problem may not be solved, but it is exposed. Most people don’t want to own their sh*t and come up with all kinds of excuses for it.

  • TruthshallsetUFree!!!!

    Iyanla provoked her to pop off.

  • Mister Fantastic

    The kidnapper has mental and anger issues that she taught the girl through her actions. This cannot be unlearned.

  • Mister Fantastic

    You want to REALLY trip out?

    SO the birth mother sued the hospital for negligence in 1998, and was awarded 1.9 million dollars. 1.2 upfront and 725k into a annuity to pay $3000 a month for the rest of her life. Another provision was more money ($307k) to be set aside for a trust fund so if the kidnapped baby was found by her 18th birthday on July 10, 2016 (verified via DNA), she would have it.

    Of COURSE by 2017, mom blows the 1.2, and SELLS OFF THE 3k for life to get the upfront money and all rights. Hoodbugger! The kidnapped girl does not do the DNA testing and is “found” until after her 18th birthday, missing the trust fund deadline. So what does the kidnapped girl do?

    She sues her newly found birth mother with the help of her disgruntled birth father… The hell? *Face palm*

  • Ghost

    Sandra…Thank you for posting this. I watched it again and all I can do is smh at the end. I understand this is a horrible situation…but we will be reading about this girl in the future and its not going to be nice…This is a reflection of her upbringing and the kidnapper did a HORRIBLE job! And she better stop slapping men before she gets slapped back…just a shame…sigh

  • Ghost

    Unfortunately…I have to agree…smh

  • http://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I agree. The kidnapper probably gave her everything she wanted rather than be a mother and a disciplinarian. She raised a narcissist who believes everyone answers to her. The most telling part of the video was when Kamiyah said her father was her “ride.” Iyanla correctly told her he was not her “ride,” he’s her father.

  • EMILY POST

    Whoooaaa that was the most out of control fix my lifes… Everybody looked confused and scared… except Iyanla….
    The kidnapped daughter seemed to have had a nervous breakdown… and temper tantrum at the same time.

During that grief I use to hope and pray my baby was switched instead of dead……I remember when the phone would ring, I would be hoping and praying on the inside that it was the hospital calling me to inform me my baby was accidentally switched for whatever reasons…….Needless to say, I never got that call……Again, I wish this was my ending…..

    The girl’s behavior is typical of black youth and young adults in South Carolina.

    My uncle and his wife moved there two years ago to consult a new development. Their three children are among the handful of black children in private school without a scholarship.

    They were not shocked by the Iyanla video. They said the state still keeps black people down and what you get are ignorant, angry, and dangerously violent young people like the kidnapped girl. It seems like the kidnappers justify their crime because of the mentality in that state.

    My uncle’s wife said the public schools in South Carolina are still unspoken segregated and rated worst performing in the entire United States. According to her, black youth violence is covered up to protect the tourism reputation.

    Not surprised.

    My uncle and his wife say this behavior is common of black youth in South Carolina. Elders are not exempt from disrespect and violence from black youth.

    It is a crazy situation all around for real. As they say, “The truth is stranger than fiction.”

    she was and still is a cute girl. looks just like her real mom and dad from day one. please put some lip gloss or mild lipstick on your lips. it is driving me crazy to see your lips so so very very dry.

    she will always see this con woman as her mom and it is unfair to the bio mom but she has to face reality. the fact that the con is in jail might give the situation a different turn in the years to come.
