A newborn kidnapped from a Jacksonville, Florida, hospital in 1998 has been found alive, now living as an 18-year-old woman in South Carolina

During a news conference Friday, Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said Kamiyah Mobley, who now goes by an unreleased name, was found in Walterboro, South Carolina, which is about 50 miles west of Charleston.

Kamiyah Mobley was not present at the news conference and no current photos of her were shared.

Walterboro native Gloria Williams, 51, is being charged with the child's abduction and extradited back to Jacksonville. Kamiyah Mobley reportedly believed she was her biological mother.

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office partnered with the FBI throughout the nearly two-decade investigation. Missing child resources, tips and Kamiyah Mobley's own suspicions helped lead the authorities to her location.

According to Sheriff Mike Williams, it is Kamiyah Mobley's, who is now legally an adult, decision to reach out to her biological family, including her half siblings.

Gloria Williams posed as a nurse during the kidnapping. Kamiyah Mobley was 8-hours-old when it happened.

According to the Florida Times-Union, Gloria Williams allegedly roamed the hospital for 14 hours asking about Sharara Mobley's baby. She spent 5 hours with the mother and child before she said the baby had a fever and needed to be checked. She wrapped the baby in a white blanket and brushed past the grandmother on her way out of the hospital.

The kidnapper was captured on surveillance video, but the footage was too blurry to provide assistance to law enforcement. The story was covered nationwide.

The Times-Union spoke with the mother, Sharara Mobley, on the 10th anniversary of Kamiyah Mobley's disappearance. She said it was stressful "to wake up every day knowing that your child is out there, and you have no way to reach her."

The Jacksonville Sheriff's Office said members of Kamiyah Mobley's biological family, who were not present at the news conference, were"elated" by her discovery.
