Cancun teen fakes kidnapping to get money from parents

Cancun, Q.R. — A teenager has been taken into custody in Cancun for faking her own kidnapping. The incident happened in mid-July when the young woman faked being kidnapped as a way to obtain money from her parents.

Earlier this week during an FGE overview of state cases, State Attorney General head Raciel López Salazar said the case of missing Allison “N” had been solved. He explained that the July 16 missing persons report filed by her parents turned out to be a stunt.

The 16-year-old teen planned the fake kidnapping on July 14. An Amber Alert was issued by the State Attorney General’s Office (FGE) to locate the missing girl after her parents filed a missing persons report.

Authorities were able to find her and three others believed accompliaces. López Salazar did not provide details about the case or the date when she was found. The three people located with her at the time were brought in for questioning for their possible involvement.

Allison “N” remains in the custody of the Adolescent Prosecutor’s Office.
