    Monica Libao - Woman thinks she was abducted -1960's

    http://www.unsolved.com/0205-Libao.html

    I thought this was interesting. Monica Libao feels she was possibly abducted as an infant/young child. This was on unsolved mysteries and is on their site.

    Interesting case... I wonder if she ever found out anything? There isn't any update so its unlikely it has been resolved.... right?

    Wow, first off I have to say wow because I was an unsolved mystery obsseive and didn't thing there were any segments I did not see. This one is completly unfamiliar to me. One thing I did notice was the picture of her ear really does not look deformed to me. It looks like a variant of normal to me. It could be the picture does not show the defect well. Earlobes are very very variable and It is possible if she is a victim of abduction her real family might not have recognized her earlobe shape as a defect and this clue could throw them off.

    I'd love to find an update on that also

    I couldn't imagine growing up that way and living that way...never knowing what's true and what isn't. It has to be hard.

    There's a thread on Monica on an UM site that says it's unresolved. The folks on the site usually know pretty quick if there's anything new.

    Missing or Lost Identities

    We are seeing more lost identities showing up now. Think it's possible we can get WS forum to start a new section just for cases like this?

    The weird thing is that she looks exactly like the Leslie girls age enhanced photos.

    I saw the thread at Unsolved Mysteries - perhaps I should have worded my comment/question differently.

    Does Unsolved Mysteries update their web pages as throughly and as quickly as they do the show?

    Maybe that I am mistaken but I thought that UM went off the air a couple of years ago. Isn't what is being aired now re-runs of previously aired shows? If I am correct, then I doubt that updates on cases are being done. The phone number for the tip line on their website is still good though so maybe they are still working behind the scenes on cases.

    I haven't seen the show in a long time and I too thought it was off the air. I remember though, the first time it was cancelled (and then later brought back) the reruns would have a screen shot at the end with a black background with white type giving any updates. It may have been just my local TV outlet that did it, but I doubt that.

    That's why I was asking about the updates....

    I don't think she was the sister's baby or that she was sold for a bus ticket because if she was they wouldn't of had to move so often. My question is this....how in the world did they survive? Who worked? Kidnapped or not this seems very odd to me. Could one of them been running from the law for something?

    My mistake

    I just realized that there is a forum on Elizabeth. The resembalance and the facts were so similar, that Elizabeth's sister took a DNA test and so did Monica. It was not a match. I apologize to all.

    The thing is, if her father was in the military, he would have been moved all over the place. And he would have taken his wife and child/children along with him. So that would explain the moving. As for the fights she overheard, I just don't know about that....

    Oops my bad

    He was in the military but he was retired military when she was supposedly, "born to the couple". So sorry bout that. I found this on a website post,

    "Monica's story begins in Chicago, in the spring of 1964. She was born on May 15th, 1964 to 58-year old retired military man, Pablo Libao, and his wife, 41-year old Clide McCall Libao. "

    Although some military people have been known to get used to and even enjoy the constant moving around, and I guess he could have been one of those.

    And I think she should

    Definitly get a DNA test. She could find out if she was either, A. Their real child or B. Related to them at all. If she took a test and found that she was their daughter, well mystery solved, although she would probably never know what they were talking about telling her and why they moved so much. If she was related, well, now she knows to talk to supposed sisters, brothers, (who may have gotten a young girlfriend pregnant), aunts, uncles, etc. And if not at all, she knows she was either adopted, (Legally or illegally), or stolen from someone else.

    Ok

    Just had a thought. Anyone here a fan of unsolved mysteries? I would never miss an episode. Okay. I remember a very odd story. And I just looked it up to see if it could possibly coincide somewhat to this case. In 1962, a woman went to the hospital in severe labor pains. She had just divorced her husband, and was looking towards raising a baby all alone. She had the baby, who cried and moved about, and asked if she could hold it. She was pretty drugged for pain, but remembers distinctly seeing the baby moving and hearing her crying. It was a girl. The doctors told her they needed to usher the baby out to clean her up and they would bring her back. The next thing she knows, the doctors come in and tell her the baby had died.

    She asked to see the baby, and they refused. She asked over and over and over and finally a nurse bought in a box and opened it for a few seconds, than closed it. The woman was unsure as to whether the baby was hers. Anyway, her mother came in and told her she would take care of all the funeral arrangements. When funeral time came, she and her mother stood there, and another family showed up. They stood a small ways away, not near any of the other stones, and watched. The mother and father had a small infant in their arms. The casket was placed into the ground.

    Now here's the kicker. The woman went there to visit the baby and found that there was no gravestone, although her mother said she had purchased one. Assuming there was a mistake, she talked to the people who owned the cemetary. They told her no baby was buried there. She got a court to agree to open up the supposed grave. When they did, there was a casket, no body at all.

    Than she recieved a strange photo in the mail. No return addresses, no letter, just a photo stuffed into an envelope. It showed a couple with a little child. She said the child looked exactly like her husband, but did not look like the parents in the photo.

    This may be a long shot, but it's a thought. Year is right. Not sure where it was, will look it up tomorrow, if you all think it is worth doing so. btw- Any idea as to how to contact this woman if we find anything?

    Why doesn't she have her own site? The internet would be such a great tool in this circumstance. Does anyone know if she 'retrieved' DNA from her parents to do a secret test of her own?
    Only my opinion, no one else need agree.

    Yup, I remember that case Laura very clearly. She said there was never a marker for the grave and where she thought she buried her child, that other family was there crying. Could be just coincidence but I think that case was talking about that woman who sold children / babies in the 50's & 60's. Cannot remember the woman's name. I believe as well she was ultimately convicted?

    Georgia Tann was the woman's name who kidnapped and sold children. From the Tennesee Childrens Society or something like that.

    Stolen baby

    Georgia Tann was no longer operating after 1950. In fact she died in the very early 50's. There were plenty of other stealers and dealers though at the time.

    first off i want to say that i am in NO way discounting the OPs story. but i have a question as an adopted person to any others out there that are adopted. i was adopted in 1959 and it was a private adoption thru a lawyer. i know as an adult chances are everything was totally legal and above board. but off an on thru my youth i often wondered if i was a child that was kidnapped and had dreams of finding my birth family. yes i would like to find my birth family but as i said i doubt i was kidnapped. but my question is this. as a person adopted does/did anyone else have this thought or idea or dream what ever you want to call it?
    we need to encourage harder sentencing on those that are harming our children. our children are worth it!!

    stop the circus!! these children as all children deserve to be found and justice brought forth for what has happened to them!!

    Of course. I think all adoptees think that. Speaking for myself, and, this is my opinion only (I was also adopted in 1959 ;o) ) I think the reason is we all would like to think that our biological mother had no choice in giving us up for adoption - ie being kidnapped would have taken it out of her hands entirely. JMHO, YMMV.






    All kinds of hugs!

    A lot of birth mothers didn't have a choice about keeping their babies. Many years ago it was a horrible thing for a woman to be unwed and pregnant. It also depends on how old the mother was If she was young her parents could have forced her into putting her baby up for adoption. I have yet to hear of a woman who was happy she gave her baby away. I am sure there is a few but very few. I have done adoption searches for years. If anything the birth mothers have suffered since they had to give their child away.
