Postpartum: Woman's Baby Missing: Told Father She Had Killed Him

Paragraphs four through six read:  “”She should have sought professional help. She did seek help for post partum depression and she was on medication and during that time she seemed a lot more mellow and everything was better,” Bob Johnson said.But she stopped taking that medication shortly before she hopped in Bob Johnson’s car with 8-month-old Gabriel and headed to Texas.

The baby was last seen in San Antonio in December with his 23-year-old mother, who allegedly told Loagn McQueary, her ex-boyfriend, that she’d killed their baby.

SSRI Stories note:

Withdrawal, especially abrupt withdrawal, from any of these medications can cause severe neuropsychiatric and physical symptoms. It is important to withdraw extremely slowly from these drugs, often over a period of a year or more, under the supervision of a qualified and experienced specialist, if available.  Withdrawal is sometimes more severe than the original symptoms or problems.

Johnson’s Grandfather Thinks She’s Lying

TEMPE, Ariz. — Bob Johnson said his granddaughter, Elizabeth, has always been secretive.

“If she didn’t want you to know something, you ain’t gonna find out,” Johnson said.

He said moving in and out of five foster homes as a child made her that way. But he said the straight “A” student also developed an irrational temper that led to bouts of rage.

“She should have sought professional help. She did seek help for post partum depression and she was on medication and during that time she seemed a lot more mellow and everything was better,” Bob Johnson said.

But she stopped taking that medication shortly before she hopped in Bob Johnson’s car with 8-month-old Gabriel and headed to Texas.

The baby was last seen in San Antonio in December with his 23-year-old mother, who allegedly told Loagn McQueary, her ex-boyfriend, that she’d killed their baby.

Elizabeth Johnson was arrested last week in Florida on suspicion of custodial interference after she didn’t show up for a custodial hearing.

“She had this cockamamie idea that she was going to change her Social Security number and name and his Social Security number and name and run forever,” Bob Johnson said.

Instead, in an exclusive interview with CBS 5, Elizabeth Johnson said she simply gave Gabriel to a couple she met in a park.

“I trusted them. I believe in my heart they’re good people,” said Elizabeth Johnson on the phone from jail.

But her grandfather doesn’t buy it. He tried to envision her scenario.

‘Oh by the way, how would you like to have a baby, oh it’s free, yeah it’s free,’ Bob Johnson said. “That’s hard. That’s hard to really believe, but it’s a simple story. It’s a story that you can repeat without stumbling.”

The last time Bob Johnson saw Gabriel was when the whole family got together for Thanksgiving. He has pictures of Elizabeth Johnson posing with the boy’s father, Logan McQueary.

“She’s the sweet Elizabeth,” Bob Johnson said when pointing to a picture of her smiling.

He thinks she gave Gabriel to a family in Texas, and is lying now so the boy will never be found. But she has threatened to harm the child, and Bob Johnson wonders if her past and her struggles with self control eventually got the best of her.

“It’s possible that in a moment of anger, depression, whatever, that she carried out her threat. I don’t even want to think about it because, what a waste. What a waste,” said Bob Johnson.
