Florida teen accused of faking abduction after fight with boyfriend
A Florida teen is accused of faking her own abduction following a break-up with her boyfriend.
WOKV in Jacksonville, Florida reports the 16-year-old was “looking for sympathy” when she was bound on the side of the road four hours after calling her father to say she had been abducted.
WOKV reports that authorizes say “she maintained the “ruse” at that time, but had really acted deliberately to avoid being detected by deputies.”
Authorities tell WOKV about “40 investigators responded in the first two hours following the report,” in addition to other resources and estimates the cost at several thousand dollars.
