Elizabeth Johnson is out of jail again.

The mother of "Baby Gabriel" was released from a Maricopa County jail on Thursday morning.

Johnson was captured and returned to Arizona in March after she admitted she skipped town and traveled out of New Mexico, which is a violation of her probation.

ABC15 was there as Johnson was released from jail. She did not answer any of the reporters questions.

Around 1:30 p.m., the New Mexico Corrections Department said Johnson was approved to return to the state.

Johnson had served 5 years for custodial interference. She admitted that she took her son, known to the general public as “Baby Gabriel,” to Texas and gave him to a couple at a San Antonio park.

Police were never able to confirm her story or find Gabriel.

Johnson will be under probation until July of 2018.

A judge warned her that if she violates any more terms of her condition of probation then she could face fines and prison time.
