Florida Mom Arrested After Making Up Story About Daughter's Kidnapping
According to the New York Daily News, a Florida woman by the name of Maria Irias reportedly got so drunk that she forgot where her six-year-old daughter Nataly was.
The 29-year-old mother lied to the cops by saying that Nataly was kidnapped by a "bald" man with a "thin build" who drove off with her daughter in the car around 4 p.m.
Irias , who couldn't be reached for comment by reporters, told deputies that she was drinking the entire day Saturday (Mar. 25) and couldn't remember where her daughter was. The young girl was located a short time later after an Amber Alert was sent out in West Palm Beach.
"After further investigation the mother admitted to detectives that she was not at the store, she did not accept a ride from a Hispanic male and the child was NOT kidnapped," a news release from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office read.
Irias was arrested on Sunday (Mar. 26) on charges of neglect and filing a false report.
