The mother of missing baby Gabriel is out of prison and now is out of the state of Arizona.

CBS 5 News first reported last Friday that the mother of missing baby Gabriel, Elizabeth Johnson, had requested through the court to leave the state of Arizona and move to New Mexico.

The request states that she wanted to reunite with her biological grandmother, Sylvia Puckett, also known as Mauzzy, because she is emotionally and financially supportive of Johnson.

The family of Logan McQueary, Gabriel's father, told CBS 5 News that the request was granted and Johnson has already left the state.

CBS 5 News tracked down Johnson and her grandmother on Friday, just hours after Johnson was released from prison. She spent four and a half years locked up for fleeing to Texas with Gabriel where the child was never seen or heard from again. Johnson would not answer any questions on Friday.

Johnson maintains her latest story that she gave her son away to a couple in a Texas park, but Johnson has yet to answer questions from the media. Johnson's attorney said while Johnson would like to reconnect with her son, her attorney doesn't know if that would be in Gabriel's best interest.

Gabriel would now be 5 years old and may have no idea that his father is desperate to find him.
