According to a news report, Tammi Smith says Elizabeth Johnson gave baby Gabriel to a San Antonio couple “who vowed no one would ever know.” Smith has reportedly stated that the couple will stay in hiding and that they “assured Johnson no one would recognize the young boy after a few years.”
The couple has been described by Johnson as Caucasians in their mid-thirties.
Logan McQueary, who is still searching for his 9-month-old son Gabriel, fears that the boy might have been sold into an underground adoption ring. However, Logan is still hopeful that he will find his child alive. On Sunday, he met with an adoption expert who consults with the FBI in underground adoptions, and according to CBS affiliate KPHO, Logan learned some startling things. Apparently, The Homegate Hotel, where Elizabeth Johnson stayed in San Antonio, is known as a place where young girls arrange to meet with families to discuss adoption and to complete paperwork.
Elizabeth and Gabriel were also spotted on surveillance footage outside a Six Flags amusement park in San Antonio. According to an experts in the case, “…girls go to Six Flags to meet with the adoptive family. There’s a lot of people in and out there, and there’s also security there, and it’s a safe place for both the mother and the family to meet, often to bring the child, introduce the child to the family.”
Reports say that two days prior to Elizabeth being seen on camera at Six Flags, she commented on her MySpace page, “Where there’s a will, there’s a way” and “Excited to start my new life.”
