PI: Missing Baby Gabriel Johnson Still Alive
Private Investigator Says He Believes Mother's Handwritten Journals

Gamble said Wednesday that he has looked through the journal and it puts Rimkus Park off Evers Road in San Antonio at the center of the investigation into the case of the missing baby.
"She also wrote down directions to this park in her journal," said Gamble. "And that is a key piece of evidence because it shows her story about coming to the park is credible. You can't get any better evidence than handwritten notes made by herself."
Gamble said Wednesday that Johnson also describes the park in detail: from the jogging trail, to the wooded area, and the park bench where she says she met a couple on the morning of Dec. 27.
Gamble said he believes that the couple was sent there by a third party who she trusted.
"I was able to see the handwritten notes and it's very compelling, because it tells the story of what she did when she was down here," said Gamble. "It gives details about her contacting women's shelters, crisis centers."
"We have good reason to believe the baby is alive and again we can't say why at this point, but we have very good reason to believe that the baby is being cared for by persons that are not known at this time," said Gamble.

PI believes Baby Gabriel is alive

"I was able to see the hand-written notes," said Ken Gamble, an investigator hired by the missing boy's father, Logan McQueary.
He said Elizabeth Johnson's journal "is very compelling because it tells the story of what she did when she was down here (in San Antonio). It gives details about her contacting women's shelters, crisis centers."
Johnson fled the Phoenix area with Gabriel in December to avoid a custody hearing. She and the boy were last seen at a San Antonio motel Dec. 26. Johnson -- who was arrested a few days later in Miami -- has told conflicting stories about what happened to her son, including one story that she gave him to an unidentified couple in a San Antonio park.
"She wrote down directions to this park in her journal," Gamble said. "And that is a key piece of evidence because it shows her story about coming to the park is actually credible. You can't get any better evidence than hand-written, contemporaneous notes made by herself."

The billboards are the result of an effort by Arizona resident Cathy Dean, who was first alerted to the possibility of billboards in a discussion on the Facebook group "Bring Home Gabriel Johnson."
"(I thought,) 'Gosh, that's a great idea,'" Dean said, and with the blessing of the McQueary family, she began to research billboards.
Dean called Lamar, who agreed to run the notice free of charge on its digital billboards.
"(Digital billboards) allow us to be able to do this kind of (public service) work at a good price," said Chris Stokes from Lamar.
Less than 24 hours after Dean's first phone call, Lamar was running the message.
"We'll continue to run it, hopefully until baby Gabriel is identified," Stokes said.
Clear Channel Communications has also expressed interest in putting Gabriel's photo up on its digital billboards.
Missing Baby Gabriel Still Alive, PI Says
Baby Gabriel Victim Of Illegal Adoption, Ken Gamble Says
POSTED: 1:49 pm MST April 1,2010
UPDATED: 2:50 pm MST April 1,2010
Missing baby Gabriel Johnson is alive and probably the victim of an illegal adoption, according to a private investigator hired by the boy's father. "I do believe he is alive because I do believe the meeting here occurred," Gamble said. "I believe a third party is involved. This is what the evidence is suggesting."
Gamble said he thinks the third party set up the meeting where Johnson gave Gabriel to the couple. Gamble said the mystery couple probably knew the adoption was illegal.
"It's very unlikely that the couple don't know what's going on," he said. "They just have very strong beliefs about the child." It's unlikely that Gabriel is still in San Antonio, Gamble said. The couple probably drove to Texas to pick up the baby.
Johnson has cooperated with authorities, Gamble said. "She's made full admissions to police," he said. "At this stage, some of that information we can't discuss because it's still under investigation."
Gamble also said he's waiting for more information, including records and subpoenaed documents, but he's "very confident we can find out who was involved."
"Someone out there knows," Gamble said. "Someone has enabled these people. Someone must realize that these people have taken in a baby recently."
