PHOENIX -- The father of missing baby Gabriel Johnson held a news conference Tuesday to refute allegations that he is not the boy's father.
Gabriel was last seen in San Antonio, Texas, on the day after Christmas with his mother, Elizabeth Johnson. Johnson was later arrested in Florida and extradited to Arizona, where she sits in a Maricopa County Jail on charges of kidnapping and custodial interference relating to her son's disappearance.
The paternity allegations recently surfaced on a blog. Nevertheless, Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary, and his attorneys said they have all they need to prove McQueary is the boy's father.
McQueary even offered a baby photo of himself, saying the similarities between his appearance at that age and Gabriel's are even more proof he's the father.
McQueary, who is moving to Texas, and his attorneys said they regretted they had to take time out of the search for Gabriel.

This isn't the first time Gabriel's paternity has been called into doubt.
When Johnson and Tammi Smith, who wanted to adopt Gabriel, went to the courthouse to file custody paperwork, Johnson listed Craig Cherry as a potential father of her baby.
Cherry, who is Smith's first cousin, told police that he had never met or spoken with Johnson.
Police said they have evidence that Smith filled out the paperwork, knowing Cherry could not be the father, put his name down anyway.
Smith was later arrested on charges of forgery and conspiracy to commit custodial interference.
