    FL - Kamiyah Mobley, newborn, Jacksonville, 10 July 1998

    Missing Since: July 10, 1998 from Jacksonville, Florida
    Classification: Non-Family Abduction
    Date Of Birth: July 10, 1998
    Age: Several hours old
    Height and Weight: 1'9, 8 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Black hair, brown eyes. Kamiyah's name is pronounced "KAH-mi-yah." She had an umbilical hernia at birth, which is seen in the illustration posted below her vital statistics. Her navel extended approximately three-quarters of an inch when she was undisturbed, but would increase to three inches when she laughed or cried. Kamiyah was also born with Mongolian spots near her buttocks. These marks were a result of delivery and resembled bruises. The spots usually fade within six to eight months after delivery.
    Clothing Description: A white t-shirt and a diaper, wrapped in a white receiving blanket with pink and blue stripes.
    Medical Conditions: Kamiyah's mother tested positive for sickle cell anemia and strep type B while pregnant with Kamiyah. The baby did not receive her infant metabolic screening at the time of her abduction, so Kamiyah was in need of medical attention at the time she was last seen.

    FL - Kamiyah Mobley, newborn, Jacksonville, 10 July 1998

    10 YEARS AGO TODAY A woman posing as a nurse in a Jacksonville hospital took an 8-hour-old girl from her mother's room in the middle of the afternoon and vanished with the baby in her arms.

    After all this time I think it's highly unlikely this little one will be found. I think the only ways Kamiyah could possibly be found are if Kamiyah's abductor gives a deathbed confession or if Kamiyah herself one day becomes suspicious that she doesn't look like her 'family' and does an internet search. I really hope I'm wrong and Kamiyah's mother will find her daughter but sadly I don't think so.

    I'm glad you posted this. I was thinking about this case the other day and was trying to remember her name.

    OMG that's horrible. It says there are other cases like this, too. I could not imagine the pain this family must feel. I know in VA you need a birth certificate to get a drivers license. Is it the same in FL? Maybe the truth will come out when she goes to get hers, and she will be reunited with her family.

    On the Charley Project site it says that the parents refuse to give permission for age-progression pictures to be done. That's a shame and it's too bad they need their permission to do it.

    When this first happened I felt really sorry for Kamiyah's mother, but I'm thinking that after a few months I saw something on the news that made me suspect that she was involved for money.

    I don't know which channel I was watching, but it was probably 12 or 4 (here in Jax). If I can find the story in any online archives, I'll link it.

    Hi
    I remember when this happened.I feel if she was involved she had changed her mind and wanted to keep her baby.Why does the family not want an age progression done?

    I don't know why they wouldn't. It said they hadn't been very cooperative with the investigation.

    Kamiyah's conception happened when her mother was underage, which lead to the baby's father being charged with statutory rape. Given all that unpleasantness, perhaps the family simply wants to forget it.

    No matter who is involved. Someone knows where this child is. Maybe they will come to the point that they cannot live with this secret anymore.

    I can think of a reason her family doesn't want an age progression. It may be too incredibly painful for them to see a grown Kamiyah. For their own state of mind they may need to avoid a visual confrontation of what they have missed. While it's not what I would do I don't think we should judge them for that.

    I'm sorry. I shouldn't have posted my suspicions of her mother since there's no evidence against her. I don't even remember what it was in that news story that first made me think that. It might have been the law suit she filed, and if so that was unfair of me. Most people in her position would sue the hospital. I apologize.
