The man who raised Kamiyah Mobley as his own daughter for 18 years says he never expected that his ex-girlfriend had actually abducted Kamiyah from a Florida hospital when she was just a baby and raised her in south Carolina as Alexis Kelly Manigo.

According to Manigo, it's a 'million dollar question' as to why Williams did what she did, but as devastating as this situation is, it doesn't change anything because even the young woman is not his real daughter any feeling he has for her had changed because she is his child.

Manigo also said that he and William shared custody of Kamiyah when they split in 2003.

Manigo said his ex-girlfriend Gloria Williams had told him she had given birth to the baby in South Carolina while he was away back in 1998.

She is thought to have suffered a miscarriage a week before she kidnapped Kamiyah from a Florida hospital and it is believed she then passed off Kamiyah as her own daughter to family and friends, who said they never suspected a thing.
