Is Gabriel Alive?

Tammi Johnson And her husband, Peter Smith, wanted to adopt Gabriel. They are considered persons of interest in the baby’s disappearance. For they were the last to see him before he was kidnapped from Arizona. In March 2010, McQueary was granted full custody of Gabriel. And Elizabeth was denied visitation or any access to the child. Ken Gamble, a private investigator whom Mcqueary hired. believes Gabriel is alive. He believes that Elizabeth gave away or sold Gabriel to a San Antonio couple.

Evidence of Theory

Gamble stated that he had evidence that that a third party made an arrangement for Elizabeth. She was to meet the couple and give Gabriel to them to adopt. Gamble described the man and woman as being in their thirties or forties. The man was tall with short dark hair. The woman was about 5’6″ tall and had long blonde hair. Gamble said he thought that the couple was aware that their adoption of Gabriel wasn’t legal. And Gabriel may no longer be in the San Antonio area. He may be disguised as a girl.

An Adoptive Couple?

An adoption expert stated that the Homegate Hotel is known in adoption circles. THis is one of the San Antonio hotels where Elizabeth stayed. Adoption agencies put birth-mothers in the hotel to meet adoptive parents. This was to complete the paperwork the paperwork. In illegal or “underground” adoptions, the birth-mother will usually bring the child to meet the adoptive parents in a public place. The last known photographs of Gabriel were taken with Elizabeth’s cellular phone in the Homegate Hotel.

False Confession Or True?

In several pictures of Gabriel, he is seen holding a medicine bottle. It was possible infant Tylenol. He appears lethargic, with his eyes half-closed. Elizabeth hired a babysitter during this time. That person didn’t know that Gabriel had been kidnapped. She stated that Elizabeth told her she had given Gabriel some medicine and to give him more if he grew fussy. Elizabeth reportedly confessed to Gabriel’s murder a third time during a jailhouse interview. She confessed this to a police detective in May 2016.

Mental Health Issues

Bring Him Home At Last

The hope is the Elizabeth Johnson did not kill Gabriel. No one wants that outcome. If he is alive (we hope), he probably is growing up unidentified. If Gamble is right, Gabriel is being raised on lies. Should be be reunited with his father and biological relatives, he will think of them as strangers. He has already spent over four years with this couple. If he is found before he reaches his teens, it will be easier for him to transition. If the unthinkable happened, his father and extended family deserve answers and he deserves justice.
