12-year-old boys tend to be dirty LIARS. At least this one had a reason most of us can RELATE to.
Last month, a 12-year-old in France disappeared. Then when police found him hiding in some bushes, he told them he'd just been ABDUCTED. But he managed to get away, and was able to give them a pretty detailed description of the kidnapper.
He said it was a white guy in his 30s, about 5-foot-7, wearing a black shirt and jeans, with a scar on his right cheek. And he also described his car. So they had a sketch artist draw a picture of the guy. And for the past month, they've been looking for him.
But they realized it didn't add up after they went over security footage from the area where the kid said it happened.
So last week, they decided to interview him again. And he finally admitted he HADN'T been kidnapped . . . he was just hiding in the bushes because he didn't want to go to the DENTIST.
It's not clear how much money was spent searching for the guy. It's also not clear if the kid's parents will have to pay for it. (The Local / Yahoo)
