Parker police want the public to know they do not believe a teenage girl was kidnapped in September and the girl may face charges for lying.

Back in September, police asked the community for help finding a person who had kidnapped a 17-year-old girl from her home, put her in a vehicle, subjected to her to what police called "unlawful sexual contact" and released her in the Willow Park area.

Police now believe the girl lied.

"It is with great relief that we announce that there are no kidnapping suspects at large," Parker police said in a news release sent to Denver7. "No arrests have been made in this case. We have recommended to the District Attorney’s Office that the individual be charged with False Reporting to Authorities."

Back in September, investigators said they couldn't release a description of the suspect/suspects or the vehicle that was involved because the victim said she was blindfolded.

Parker police said detectives spent many hours working this case and wanted to thank the residents of the Town of Parker who contacted investigators with possible leads.
