Missing Baby Gabriel Johnson: Couple Who Hoped to Adopt Ariz. Baby Took Lie Detector Test

written by Edecio Martinez

PHOENIX--Scottsdale couple Jack and Terri Smith, who briefly took care of missing baby Gabriel Johnson, say they know nothing about where the 8-month-old is now. Arizona police are trying to determine if the baby was given to strangers in San Antonio, as Gabriel's mother Elizabeth Johnson told them, or murdered, as she told the boy's father.

They are also trying to understand what exactly Jack and Terri Smith know. The couple had hoped to adopt Gabriel and police asked them to take a polygraph test last Friday.

The couple has said they befriended Gabriel's mother Elizabeth Johnson, 23, at an airport and that she wanted to give her son up for adoption. The child briefly stayed with them, but the boy's father, Logan McQueary, did not want to give up parental rights...

She had also sent McQueary a text message saying she had killed the infant.

"She never ever gave specific details. Whether it be a domestic violence shelter, the underground, whether it be a hotel. Whatever it was that she continued to tell me and now I feel like a fool because knowing more stuff now after all the facts have been laid out in front of me, I see that she was lying to us and playing us," said Terri Smith.

...She was taken into custody Dec. 30 after failing to show up for a custodial hearing in Phoenix. Elizabeth Johnson has been charged with kidnapping, child abuse and custodial interference.
