CLOSE

When an Iowa coach, teacher or administrator is thought to be in violation of ethical standards, the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners investigates and when appropriate imposes sanctions to their license.

In January, a state licensing board permanently revoked Michael Loren Ross’s teaching license, which he had voluntarily surrendered. He was previously authorized to teach kindergarten through sixth grade.

Gloria Williams and Alexis Manigo/Kamiyah Mobley (Florida State Attorney’s Office)

In 1998, Gloria Bolden Willians sneaked into the neonatal nursery of a Jacksonville, Fla., hospital dressed as a nurse.

Since that fateful day, Williams’ family and friends believed she had a daughter named Alexis Manigo.

In 2016, Williams’ story began unraveling when the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received tips that baby Kamiyah was living in Walterboro, S.C. Nearly two decades later, 52-year-old Gloria Williams faces 22

A nearly 20-year mystery is coming to an end as 52-year-old Gloria Bolden Williams pleaded guilty Monday to kidnapping newborn Kamiyah Mobley from what was then the University Medical Center in downtown Jacksonville.
