Prosecutors say woman, 18, caused false police report in Michigan after claiming abduction


MONROE, Michigan — Prosecutors in Michigan say they've charged an 18-year-old woman with causing a false police report to be filed after she was reported missing and found a day later.

Monroe County Chief Assistant Prosecutor Joseph Costello Jr. says the charge filed Thursday against Hayley Turner is a felony. It carries a punishment of up to four years in prison.

Authorities say Turner claimed she was abducted Aug. 7, just north of Ohio in Bedford Township and was found safe 16 hours later in the Detroit suburb of Ecorse. They say they found problems with her story.

Costello says prosecutors were working with Turner's lawyer Bill Godfroy for her surrender. Godfroy didn't return a message to The Associated Press on Thursday.
