Baby Gabriel's mother held without bond after extradition from New Mexico

PHOENIX (AP) -- An Arizona woman who served prison time in the 2009 disappearance of her baby is jailed without bond in Phoenix after being extradited from New Mexico.

Elizabeth Johnson appeared briefly Friday morning before a judge who ordered the 29-year-old woman held pending a court hearing next Thursday on alleged probation violations.

Johnson was arrested in Albuquerque. None of the alleged probation violations there stem from the case of her missing 8-month-old son Gabriel, who has never been found.

Among other things, Johnson is accused of failing to get approval before traveling out of New Mexico, associating with a person with a criminal record and not notifying probation officials when she married last December.

Johnson was released from Arizona's Perryville prison in July 2014 after serving about 17 months.
