Teen's Abduction Story is False; FBI Was Involved in Interviewing Her

August 10, 2014, 5:31 PM

Hayley Turner, a Bedford Township teen, claimed she was abducted on Thursday on the way home from a video store. She was missing 16 hours before she was found on Friday.

Well, guess what?

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office says Sunday that the "incident did not take place, as originally reported," according to WXYZ

Turner, 18,  went to the Ecorse Police station on Saturday afternoon, the day after she resurfaced, to talk to detectives, the station adds. 

She was discovered 45 minutes away from her Monroe home after someone called 911 saying they had seen a woman jumping from a moving vehicle.

Police found her with a few scratches, the station reports. She could face charges for lying to police. Local prosecutors will review the case. 

The following is a statement from the Monroe County Sheriff's Department that was posted on its Facebook page:

The Monroe County Sheriff's Office is continuing the investigation of the alleged abduction of Hayley Turner that occurred in Bedford Township on August 7th, 2014 at approximately 10:10PM.

This afternoon, Sunday August 10th, 2014 at approximately 3:15PM, Detective Sergeant Jeff Pauli, along with a Special Agent from the FBI, conducted a follow-up interview with the alleged victim.

As a result of that interview, it was determined that the incident did not take place, as originally reported. The Monroe County Sheriff's Office will be closing out the investigation and forwarding the complaint to the Monroe County Prosecutor's Office, for review.

The family requests that everyone respect their privacy during this most difficult time.

Sheriff Dale Malone would like to thank the citizens of Bedford Township for their support during this investigation and would like to reassure them that they live in a safe and secure community.
