Aurora detectives now say a teenager there staged her own kidnapping. Jasmine Fike, they believe, is a voluntary runaway.
Investigators say they began investigating Jasmine’s disappearance just before 9:00 a.m. Wednesday. At her home they found signs of a physical struggle and they also had a recorded 911 call in which she said someone was trying to break into her home and take her. When officers arrived, she was nowhere to be found.
An Amber Alert was released for Fike Wednesday.
Originally, the Amber Alert indicated she might have been with Franky Lamont Session, 37. Investigators now say Session did not play a role in the kidnapping hoax.
Investigators are continuing to look for Fike, and say that she may be in the company of known criminals.
Police did not release any information about the new evidence that has convinced them this was a hoax.
The Amber Alert was officially cancelled Thursday afternoon.
