    And people wonder why we must question facts in news stories when they are originally reported...

    A 17-year-old girl who said she was kidnapped while jogging in western France, triggering a frantic search by hundreds of police, has admitted her story was a hoax, prosecutors said.

    Under questioning the teenager, identified in media reports as Lisa P, said she had "lied" about an abduction by two men on Monday and her eventual escape the next day, said the public prosecutor for the city of Laval, Celine Maigne.
