False Report of Kidnapping In Crosby
A report of a kidnapping Sunday afternoon has now been confirmed false by the Crosby Police Department.
The Crosby Police Department responded at 3:24 p.m. to a report that female and another woman were kidnapped and held against their will.
Crosby officers met the woman on Third Avenue Northeast and West Main Street in Crosby, where they received details of the incident.
Crosby Police Chief Kim Coughlin told Lakeland News that the woman said she did not know where the other female was and directed officers to an apartment building where she said the incident occurred.

After further investigation, Crosby police learned there was no kidnapping and the second female was found safely at her own residence.
Officers are continuing the investigations and may be submitting charges against the reporting female for false reporting to the police.
