    Missing Oregon girl found safe after 18 years

    An Oregon girl abducted as a baby and missing for 18 years finally emerged in Dallas this week when her mother turned herself in to authorities, according to the Polk County Sheriff's Department.


    Thousands of miles away in Iowa, Dan Wilson said he was disappointed deputies allowed his daughter to leave without getting so much as a picture of her. The only known photo of Ashlyn Wilson was taken when she was 8 months old.

    "I've been familiar with the anguish rollercoaster for the past 18 years, but that set a new high and a new low," Dan Wilson said.

    Tara Wilson is due in court on May 28.

    "When Ashlyn talked to detectives, she gave very short, cryptic answers," Sheriff Bob Wolfe said Friday. "She just said she was 18 and had not been held against her will."

    Tara Wilson, meanwhile, turned herself in, posted bail on the only crime she has been charged with so far -- contempt of court -- and left.

    Interesting updates from the Facebook page run by Ashlyn's father. See post on May 14.


    Long story short - He says that Tara turned herself in on 5/13. She was jailed. Ashlyn and her grandfather were also there. Ashlyn said she was not being held against her will and has a wonderful mother. Did not ID her, photo her, question her away from her grandfather, or even tell her that her father had been looking for her for 18 years. Tara was bailed out and they all left.

    In my own reality...it's nicer here.
    This gives me hope that Gabriel Johnson will one day be found. If I live to be 100, I will never stop looking for that little boy! I think about him every single day.
