WALTERBORO, S.C. -- A South Carolina teen kidnapped as a newborn first began to question her identity when she started looking for a job, and prospective employers told her her birth documents were fake, police say.
Kamiyah Mobley met her birth parents on Saturday at the police department in Walterboro, the South Carolina city where she was raised under a false name, multiple media outlets reported. Walterboro is 50 miles west of Charleston. Mobley was only eight hours old in 1998 when she was taken from a Jacksonville, Florida, hospital by a woman posing as a nurse.
“We’re not sure of what details she knew or how much she knew or how much she was told,” said Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said Monday, according to CBS affiliate WJAX. “But we believe that there was a conversation at some point with some explanation about why her birth documents were fraudulent.”
