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.
