Last night a teen was 'kidnapped' while walking down the street with her mother in the Bronx at around 11:30 pm and this afternoon the same 16-year-old who has been identified as, Karol Sanchez, turned herself over to police in the same location she had been taken. 

Many in the New York metro area woke up this morning to an Amber Alert of her kidnapping and just hours ago police reported that she had been found safe and well. 

Here is video footage of the believed 'kidnapping'. 

And here is video footage her being reunited with her family. 

But according to NY Daily News, this is only half of the story. Karol Sanchez the 16-year-old teen allegedly staged the kidnapping in order to get away from her overbearing mother, who was planning on moving her family to Honduras and in doing so has made herself a household name, etched into hoax anthologies right next to Jussie Smollett. 

It is unclear at the moment if she or the four men (her friends) who kidnapped her will be charged. Both she and her family denied commenting on the story, though a source close with the NYPD said the event was without a doubt 'staged'.
