    FOX 10 has obtained exclusive jailhouse phone conversations between Johnson and Tammi Smith, the only other person under investigation in the case.

    Smith is the woman who almost adopted baby Gabriel before he disappeared. She's been charged with trying to forge documents to gain custody of the child.

    In the phone call, Smith accuses Johnson of destroying her life. The two spoke via jailhouse phone back in January. In turn, Elizabeth Johnson suggests Tammi Smith and her husband Jack arranged for a couple to take baby Gabriel.

    Johnson is back in her jail cell after spending over a week in a psychiatric unit for refusing to eat. As for Logan McQueary, he is still hopeful that his son is alive.

    Search Stalled On Gabriel's 1st Birthday
    Leads Drying Up In Search For Boy Missing 4 Months

    POSTED: 7:13 am MST May 4, 2010
    UPDATED: 8:06 am MST May 4, 2010

    Investigators believe his mother either gave him away as part of an underground adoption plan or killed him in San Antonio, Texas. With each passing day, Gabriel's return seems more unlikely. His appearance would have changed by now and tips have fallen off to a trickle, investigators said. Those involved in the search said their next steps are unclear.

    "Gabriel needs to come home one way or another," said Tim Maloney, the lawyer for Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary. McQueary chose to speak through his attorney on the boy's birthday because the emotions of the day were too much to bear in public. "To have no information getting you one step closer is really hard. I think it's getting more difficult for him and I think he needs to make some tough decisions about how long he's going to keep it going," Maloney said.

    McQueary this week was on his way back from Illinois, where he was spending time with family. He firmly believes the boy's mother, Elizabeth Johnson, gave Gabriel away in a planned underground adoption and that the boy is still alive. But every lead has been a dead end, and with dwindling tips and depleted resources, Gabriel's family and San Antonio police are left grasping for clues. "In this case, we've exhausted hours upon hours, man hours. We had the landfill search that lasted weeks and weeks. So it is frustrating," San Antonio police Sgt. Chris Benavides.

    The one woman who investigators believe holds all answers is not helpful, they said. The boy's mother, Elizabeth Johnson, was released back into the general population of the Estrella jail on Monday after a brief stint in the psych ward. "Of course she's capable of standing trial. She just doesn't like being in jail," Maloney said.

    She may not be there much longer. Without a body, a murder charge is unlikely, and it may be difficult for prosecutors to find her guilty of kidnapping. Even with a guilty verdict on custodial interference, Johnson could be out in less than a year. "Gabriel is alive or he's not. There was a meeting in the park or there was not. And that's it," Maloney said. "We continue on, and we're going to continue on until we have a resolution one way or another."

    Mother of a missing Arizona baby is incompetent to stand trial
    Posted - 6/3/2010 at 7:11PM
    <snipped>
    Two court-appointed doctors say the mother of a missing Arizona baby who's been missing since December is incompetent to stand trial.

    A Maricopa County judge is expected to make a ruling on the doctors' report soon that could excuse 23-year-old Elizabeth Johnson from participating in further court proceedings involving the disappearance of her son.

    Mother of Baby Gabriel found not competent to stand trial
    Jun. 3, 2010 06:07 PM
    <snipped>
    The mother of missing baby Gabriel Johnson is not competent to stand trial, Maricopa County Superior Court Commissioner Steven Holding ruled today. But with treatment and therapy, she could be tried at a later date.

    Holding made the ruling after two court-appointed doctors submitted a psychological evaluation that found Elizabeth Johnson could not assist her attorney in her own defense. She is accused of kidnapping, child abuse and conspiracy to commit custodial interference. Gabriel, who was born a year ago, has been missing since December.

    Superior Court spokesman Vincent Funari said there will be another hearing August 12 to decide the length and conditions of the rehabilitative process, which could take up to nine months. If after that time, doctors are unable to restore her to competency, a judge must drop charges against her and commit her to state hospital.

    Johnson's attorney, Nicholas Alcock, filed a request for the court evaluation, also known as a Rule 11. Alcock said he felt Johnson was mentally ill since his first meeting with her, and was concerned she would be unable to help him prepare her defense. "A criminal defendant has to be able to assist their attorney," he said. "We're talking about complicated matters of law and fact, and there's a minimal standard a defendant has to pass."

    Elizabeth Johnson Unfit To Stand Trial
    Baby Gabriel Disappearance Now Into Sixth Month

    POSTED: 9:13 pm MST June 3, 2010
    UPDATED: 10:47 pm MST June 4, 2010
    <snipped>
    The last time Elizabeth Johnson took the stand, she was lucid enough to repeatedly plead the "fifth" when asked what she did with her son, but after getting a new and more expensive attorney, Johnson's status apparently has changed. "When we first took the case, we noticed she was having problems really understanding the basics, the way the court system works. They sent two doctors to go evaluate her and they found that she was incompetent," said Nicholas Alcock, Johnson's new attorney.

    Gabriel Johnson would now be 1-year-old.

    Yet, those close to Johnson said they never questioned her volatility. Gabriel's father, Logan McQueary, said he had to call the police after Johnson allegedly slashed up their apartment with a knife. Johnson's grandfather told CBS 5 News that he thought she was bi-polar.

    Now, the trial will come to a halt while Johnson is treated and medicated by doctors, against her will if necessary.

    "I don't know if the medication is going to work. I'm not a doctor, but I do know that after the first couple of weeks after I met her, I understood she was not able to help me. What I'm relieved at right now is that there is some impartial judgment that she suffers from some mental illness," said Alcock.

    Six months later, no answers in missing Baby Gabriel case
    Posted: Thursday, June 24, 2010 3:32 pm

    <snipped>

    Sandy Gutierrez, a spokeswoman for the San Antonio Police Department, told the Tribune on Thursday that there have been no developments in the case since March 12. That was the day investigators ended a 16-day excavation of a landfill in San Antonio after sifting through 4,260 tons of trash in an attempt to find any of the boy's remains or evidence that would help the case. Police also would not say whether they were able to locate a young Hispanic man, a known drug dealer, seen with Johnson at a motel in San Antonio where she was staying, according to authorities. Nor did they release the man's name.

    Gutierrez also said that the police department has received very few tips in the last three months.

    "As unfortunate as it may be, nothing new has developed," Gutierrez said.
