WOMAN IN CUSTODY CASE IS FREED

The woman found masquerading as the mother of a child kidnapped in San Diego seven years ago has been freed on bail and says she expects to visit the girl she still calls her daughter.

"I'm very happy and confident that I will see her over Christmas," Nilsa Gierbolini Guzman, 35, said Tuesday night as she left the women's prison in the coastal town of Vega Alta.

Last week, Ms. Gierbolini's lawyers said she would ask a Puerto Rican court for custody of Crystal Leann Anzaldi, now 8. The girl's parents, Jeffrey and Dorothy Anzaldi, who divorced after their daughter's disappearance, also are seeking custody.
