(WTXL) — According to jail log records, Brianna Williams, the mother of missing 5-year-old Taylor Rose Williams, has been released from the hospital and booked into Duval County Jail on $1.1 million bond.

Williams was hospitalized after ingesting an unknown substance on Nov. 12, right after authorities announced that human remains had been discovered in Alabama during the search for her daughter.

First Coast News reports Jacksonville Sheriff Mike Williams said JSO believes the remains belong to Taylor but is awaiting a positive ID from an autopsy and DNA comparison.

Last week, an arrest warrant revealed that Brianna Williams was accused of giving "numerous false statements" about her daughter's location.

Brianna is now considered a person of interest in the case. She was the one who first reported that her daughter Taylor had gone missing from their home.
