"Everything is over, thank God. She's OK, and she is in the hospital," her mother Sylvia Pantaleon told ABC News Friday. Prior to Mabel's disappearance, she had confronted family members and accused them of being terrorists, her mother claimed.
"She saw something on the Internet and got very upset, and she started saying a lot of weird things," Sylvia said.
"She said, 'I'm leaving from here, all of you are terrorists, you're not my mother. I knew it wasn't her," her mother said.
