    Mom in missing Tempe baby case due in court today
    Last Update: 8:54 am

    ABC15 spoke with forensic psychologist Dr. Michael Bayless, who has not evaluated or treated Johnson, to get some insight into the reason she's being so uncooperative with authorities.

    "Possibly, she has an emotional disturbance which is causing her a great deal of fear and anxiety, which she is attempting to avoid," he said.

    As for why Johnson took off with her son Gabriel in the first place, Bayliss said the young mother may have thought what she was doing was good for her child.

    "Sometimes people become very obsessed," said Bayless. "And they're compelled to do something, in their mind, they feel as though they are saving the child. Preventing the child from being like the father or being like the mother."

    The mother of missing baby Gabriel Johnson is scheduled to appear in court Wednesday morning.

    Judge Timothy Ryan said Johnson must be in court to ask for a new lawyer.

    Elizabeth Johnson, 23, asked for new representation because she said her current attorneys were ignoring her request to ask the judge to reconsider letting her out of jail, according to Judge Timothy Ryan.

    Johnson also told the judge she felt her lawyers were pressuring her, but Ryan said it was for her own good.

    "The reality is they have a case involving baby Gabriel, and the police want to know where baby Gabriel is located," Ryan told her. "So when your attorneys come to you for information from the police &#8230; the reason they're doing that is not to pressure you. It's their ethical responsibility to talk to you about those things.

    In her motion, Johnson wrote that Smith was "inadequately representing" her, adding that Smith had discussed the case of an unrelated client with her and that she thought Smith had been discussing her case with others.

    Judge Timothy Ryan denied Johnson's request to fire Smith at a hearing Wednesday, telling her why Smith didn't file a motion to change her release conditions, and that she has been acting properly as her attorney.

    "Right now the reality is they have a case involving baby Gabriel, and the police want to know where baby Gabriel is located," Ryan said. "So when your attorneys come to you with requests for information from the police ... the reason they're doing that isn't to pressure you, it's their ethical responsibility to talk to you about those things."

    Johnson's lip quivered at the mention of her son, but she otherwise sat quietly in shackles and answered Ryan's questions with one-word responses.

    Ryan granted Smith's motion to excuse Johnson from attending future hearings in her case except during trial or when otherwise ordered to do so. He also denied a motion by Smith to ban video and still cameras from the courtroom.

    Smith had said the media coverage would taint potential jurors and deny her client the right to a fair trial, while media attorneys argued it was their clients' constitutional right to record the proceedings for the public and that any tainted jurors can be vetted before the trial.

    During the hearing Ryan refused to fire Elizabeth Johnson's lawyer. Johnson had asked the judge to fire attorney Vanessa Smith, saying in a motion handwritten on notebook paper that Smith "does not file motions I request and pressures me to do what she wants." The 23-year-old Johnson's lip quivered when Ryan mentioned her son Gabriel, who was 8 months old when he was last seen in late December in San Antonio.

    Judge Ryan would have ruled on two motions had Johnson come to court last week. Those motions -- to designate counsel and designate the case complex -- can not be ruled on without the defendant in court.

    ABC15 spoke with forensic psychologist Dr. Michael Bayless, who has not evaluated or treated Johnson, to get some insight into the reason she's being so uncooperative with authorities. "Possibly, she has an emotional disturbance which is causing her a great deal of fear and anxiety, which she is attempting to avoid," he said.

"Sometimes people become very obsessed," said Bayless. "And they're compelled to do something, in their mind, they feel as though they are saving the child. Preventing the child from being like the father or being like the mother."

    "Just tell me where he's at," said Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary.

    The mother of a missing boy last seen here in San Antonio was in court in Phoenix Wednesday.

    Elizabeth Johnson asked the judge to fire her attorney Vanessa Smith.

    Johnson says Smith does not file the motions she requests and pressures her to do things she doesn't want to.

    That request was denied.

    Mother of missing baby has to keep lawyer
    March 17th, 2010 @ 11:15am
    <snipped>
    A Phoenix judge on Wednesday refused to fire the lawyer defending the mother of an Arizona baby who has been missing for nearly three months.

    Elizabeth Johnson, 23, had asked the judge to dismiss attorney Vanessa Smith, saying in a motion handwritten on notebook paper that Smith ``does not file motions I request and pressures me to do what she wants.''

    Johnson's son, Gabriel, was 8 months old when he was last seen in late December in San Antonio, and police don't know whether he's alive. Johnson, who remains in jail, has pleaded not guilty to kidnapping, child abuse and custodial interference in the case.

Johnson had refused to leave her cell for a court hearing last week, but Judge Timothy Ryan ordered deputies to "use any means necessary" to get her to Wednesday's hearing. The 23-year-old Johnson is being held in Maricopa County jail in connection with her son Gabriel's disappearance.

    Private Investigator: 'Elizabeth Johnson Wasn't Alone'
    Multiple Witnesses Say Johnson Had Male Company In San Antonio

    POSTED: 8:03 pm MST March 17, 2010
    UPDATED: 8:34 pm MST March 17, 2010
    <snipped>
    The newest private investigator to join the search for baby Gabriel says he has made significant progress. Ken Gamble, of Gamble Investigations Inc., interviewed several witnesses in San Antonio who said Elizabeth Johnson had a male companion starting the first night she was in San Antonio.

    Gamble was in the audience during a hearing Wednesday morning in Phoenix, when a judge denied a request from the mother of missing baby Gabriel Johnson for a new lawyer.

    Gamble wanted to meet with Johnson, but she has yet to agree. But even without that meeting, Gamble told CBS5 that there is no evidence that Johnson killed Gabriel. He said everything points to her giving him up in an underground and illegal adoption. Gamble remains confident Gabriel is still in the United States.
