PHOENIX - Their day in court. That's what the McQueary family has waited for, for a long time.
But they left with a bitter sweet taste after getting only some of what they hoped for.
Elizabeth Johnson, whose infant son Gabriel vanished nearly three years ago was convicted of unlawful imprisonment Thursday after a jury failed to reach a verdict on the most serious charge against her, kidnapping.
"I wish she would've got a conviction on kidnapping," said Gabriel's grandfather Frank McQueary. "Because that's what she deserves," he said.
Frank's son Logan is Gabriel's father. He testified in the case, but was not in court today and now lives out of state.
ABC15 tried to reach Logan McQueary several times without any luck.
Frank McQueary also said he hopes the state of Texas will take up the case, charging Johnson with kidnapping.
He also said he does not know if Gabriel is alive or dead.
