11-year-old girl who claimed abduction to appear in court
The 11 year old girl who claimed she had been kidnapped on June 23rd is in custody at the Nueces County Juvenile Justice Center.
CORPUS CHRISTI -
The 11-year-old girl who investigators say faked her own abduction will appear in juvenile court today.
The girl surrendered to police last week after a directive to apprehend, which is an arrest warrant for juveniles, was issued for her. At that time, she was ordered to remain in custody to undergo a psychological exam.
It was back on June 23 when officers responded to a 911 call stating a young girl was grabbed off of the street by a man that had been following her and a group of friends, according to investigators. Two girls that were with the girl told police they tried to fight off the alleged abductor.
The news spread quickly through the city. Residents immediately began searching for the truck that officers gave a description of. An Amber Alert was also issued for the girl. She was found a few hours after she was reportedly abducted.
Three days later, officers released information stating that they believe the abduction never happened. The directive to apprehend was issued on July 11.
The judge should decide whether the 11-year-old will be released to her parents at a hearing this afternoon.
