Amber Alert-Michigan

The AMBER Alert System began in 1996 when Dallas-Fort Worth broadcasters teamed with local police to develop an early warning system to help find abducted children. AMBER stands for America's Missing: Broadcast Emergency Response and was created as a legacy to 9-year-old Amber Hagerman, who was kidnaped while riding her bicycle in Arlington, Texas, and then brutally murdered. Other states and communities soon set up their own AMBER plans as the idea was adopted across the nation.

I find it odd that the girl "managed to escape", made it home, they know what house she was supposedly held at, yet there is nothing about charges, an investigation, etc. I am glad she is safe. I'd just like to know if it's something she cooked up or if there was a real abduction.

The girl later admitted to police that she was not kidnapped but went willingly with her boyfriend to a home where there were several other young men. She reports that she was touched inappropriately and was afraid to leave until they fell asleep.
