Earlier today (December 17), news broke that a 16-year-old girl from the Bronx was kidnapped right in front of her mother.
The incident blew up on social media and stole many of Tuesday’s top headlines. Now, the NYPD 40th Precinct reports that the girl named Karol Sanchez has been found and is being returned to her family. Video later surfaced of Sanchez walking alongside law enforcement.
No charges have been filed at this time, but police are looking for four male accomplices.
The surveillance video, which was released early Tuesday shows four men snatching the teen off of a Bronx street.
CBS2 reports that Sanchez staged the incident because she experienced “family issues” at home. The NYPD says they want to speak with everyone involved before deciding whether to press charges.
