ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — An Arizona woman convicted in her young son’s disappearance nearly five years ago and recently released from prison is living in New Mexico.
KOB-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1qIj7dy) Elizabeth Johnson asked for permission [auth] to live with her grandmother in Albuquerque after she was released last Friday from a state prison west of Phoenix.
A KOB crew tracked Johnson to the grandmother’s house this week, but she reportedly refused to answer any questions.
Johnson was given a 5 ¼-year sentence in 2012 for custodial interference and unlawful imprisonment in the 2009 disappearance of her then-8-month-old son, Gabriel.
A jury deadlocked on a kidnapping charge against Johnson, who turns 28 later this month.
Johnson has maintained her story that she gave Gabriel away to a couple in Texas. The baby has never been found.
