MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) - A Morristown woman has been accused of filing a false report after she told police she was kidnapped last week.

Morristown police said in a news release that 25-year-old Ciara Mae Holt had told officers that she blacked out on Sunday and woke up 13 hours later in Arden, North Carolina. She was reported missing that day by her husband.

Police say that after being confronted with evidence contradicting her story, Holt confessed to fabricating the events she reported.

Authorities say filing a false report is a felony and punishable with a two- to 12-year jail sentence.

It is unclear whether Holt has an attorney.
