BEDFORD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) — Southeastern Michigan authorities are closing an investigation of an 18-year-old woman’s claim she was abducted along a road and held hostage for 16 hours, saying it never happened.

The Monroe County sheriff’s department says a detective and an FBI agent re-interviewed the woman Sunday and “determined that the incident did not take place.”

The department says it’s forwarding a report to the county prosecutor’s office for review.

The department says the woman earlier reported being abducted after stopping her car when she saw someone lying along a road Thursday night. The site is in Bedford Township, just north of Ohio.

Ecorse police Cpl. Chris Trevino tells the Detroit Free Press that a motorist saw the woman jump from the vehicle in the Detroit suburb Friday afternoon before it sped away.
