ECORSE, Mich. (AP) — Police say they plan to ask prosecutors to charge an 18-year-old Michigan woman after investigators determined that she lied about being abducted along a road and held hostage for 16 hours.
Ecorse police Lt. Greg Blade told The Detroit News on Monday that the department will send the case to the Wayne County prosecutor's office. Charges could include filing a false police report. She was found Friday in the Detroit suburb.
The Monroe County sheriff's department says the woman reported being abducted after stopping her car when she saw someone lying along a road Thursday night in Bedford Township, about 45 miles away.
The department announced Sunday that a detective and FBI agent re-interviewed the woman Sunday and determined that she wasn't abducted. Monroe County prosecutors also are involved.
