MIDDLEBURG, Fla. — A break-up with her boyfriend prompted a Florida teenager to stage her own abduction, setting off a state-wide search.

According to WOKV, it all started after Ankita Lavender, 16, called her father saying she’d been kidnapped.

An Amber Alert was issued, but she was found about four hours later.

At first, she maintained to police that she’d been abducted.

But then she finally admitted she made up the story because she wanted sympathy from her ex-boyfriend.

They’d broken up two days earlier.

    This is totally ridiculous. Its sad people so missing for real everyday and its no joke but for some reason this girl thought it was ok to fake her own kidnapping over a stupid boy… My husband and I Are really hoping this girl gets charged for this, then maybe she will learn there are more important things then boys.
