Will Missing Baby Gabriel Johnson Ever Be Found Alive?

Yesterday marked the two year anniversary of the day Gabriel Johnson was first reported missing. At the time of his disappearance, Gabriel was just eight months old.

The boy's mother, Elizabeth Johnson, is suspected to have been involved in his disappearance -- she currently is charged with kidnapping and child abuse.

Initially, Johnson told the boy's father, Logan McQueary, that she killed the boy and threw him in a dumpster. She later changed her story, saying she gave the baby to an unknown couple she met in a San Antonio park.

Two years later, and McQueary isn't holding out hope that his son will be found alive.

"I always knew the evidence was there in the things that police and the FBI told me and listening to the interviews and stuff that Elizabeth said, but I guess I never really wanted to believe it and I guess just over time I came to the realization that this might be exactly what Elizabeth did," McQueary tells a local TV station.
