FERNANDINA BEACH, Fla. -- Peyton Keiter is a happy, healthy, two-and-a-half-year-old who plays with dolls and really likes to dance.

But if you find her picture on the internet, you'll see a completely different story. 

"Her name's Hayley and she has Cystic Fibrosis, and it's all a lie," Peyton's mother Jennifer Keiter said.

A week ago Peyton's mom was contacted on Facebook by someone she had never met, asking if photos on the popular networking website were her daughter.

"It's very odd. I don't understand it, I don't get it," she said.

Keiter says she believes someone stole images of her and her daughter and created a new profile - with different names and a phony medical condition for Peyton.

Searching further, Keither found the same photos on MySpace, a Cystic Fibrosis blog, and on two YouTube videos.

"I'm on there constantly. I'm kind of obsessed with it now because I find something new every day," she said.

Of the 10 links she says she found containing her daughter's picture, Keiter says they all ask only that the viewer donate money to fight Cystic Fibrosis.

But the emotional nature of the videos has her worried.

"It's like this person is obsessed with my child," she said.

She's reported the imposter to the local police, FBI, and Florida's Attorney General's office. While she waits to hear back, she's successfully convinced Facebook and Myspace to take down the fake profiles.

Keiter has also made her own profile private, and taken down all of Peyton's pictures.

"Now, I don't think I will ever put a picture of my child on the internet," she said.
