A 7-year-old girl abducted by her mother five years ago might be living in Santa Fe, according to six eyewitnesses.

Samantha Michelle Kibalo and her mother, Ann Yermak Kibalo, disappeared from Suffern, N.Y., in February 2001 after failing to return from a court-authorized overnight visit.

The child’s father, Michael Kibalo, who had sole custody of Samantha, has been searching for her ever since.

After receiving a tip she might be here, Kevin Gallagher, a lawyer and friend of Michael Kibalo, visited Santa Fe twice — in February and in September. He distributed missing-child fliers and talked to six people who said they were certain they had seen mother and daughter — at a mall, a doctor’s office and other places.
One woman who talked to the mother and daughter several times described Samantha as “real quiet, withdrawn.” She said the mother didn’t interact much with the child.

The Mother has been diagnosed with Munchhausen Syndrome by proxy. A disorder where the parent seeks attention for herself by either creating a phantom illness or even actually harming a child to get it medical attention.

Most likely to be identified by a health care provider.

I first saw this on the unsolved mysteries web pages. When I saw this little girl, without even looking at her name she resembled a little girl in my sons class. I was shocked to see the first names are the same. The birth dates are 3 days off, and the little girl in my sons class was adopted when she was around 3 yrs old. She was first a foster child then adopted by a local family. Her adopted mom is a RN, (weird huh?) The only problem is the report posted in the 2nd post. That they could have been spotted in SF, NM

Anyway my son just got home from school and I asked him who the pictures looked like. He said, "where did you get pictures of Samantha?" I know this family, and they are good people. And they love her intensely. This was a NE state adoption. They also adopted 2 other children at the same time. This is one of those things that I just don't know what to do. It's kind of like seeing a UFO...LOL The only people who ever seem to see them are the ones looking for them :). Any advice on how to proceed without causing ANY waves and protecting the family?

Do you think that it could be the same Samatha? Maybe the foster care and the adoption are a story. Could the family be related to Samatha's mother and they are raising her now or something but want that fact kept quiet?

I think I would notify someone and just tell them what you said here. It can't hurt for things to be checked out. They say that everyone has a double and maybe this girl is Samatha's double with the same name but who knows for sure. I would contact someone and let them check it out just to be sure.


Samatha was 2 yrs when her mother took her. This couple adopted this girl when she was 3 yrs. It is very possible that she is the same girl and maybe the couple don't even know it. Maybe the mother decided to place her for adoption when she was 3 yrs and changed her birthdate by 3 days and got birth certificate from someone. If she wanted to punish the father that sure would be a way to do it. The Samatha who was taken by her mom has pretty unique looks. Sightings usually aren't real and so who knows about the ones who said they saw the mom and daughter. I would contact someone for sure just to be certain.

You have no choice but to contact LE in this matter. It's a serious issue and if it were your child missing you'd want every lead looked into. Don't hesitate, call and let LE be the ones to proceed.
