Karol Sanchez, the 16-year-old girl who was thought to have been pulled into a car and kidnapped in front of her mother, has confessed to staging the whole scene.
Sanchez confessed to the hoax after being reunited with her family Tuesday.
No charges have been filed at this time, but police are looking for four male accomplices.
The blurry surveillance video of the incident that took place Monday showed two men snatching the 16-year-old off the street, pushing her mother to the ground and forcing Sanchez into a car.
The NYPD put out an Amber Alert and flooded the neighborhood with missing posters.
At 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sanchez suddenly showed back up at the scene and turned herself in to police as stunned people on the street watched.
Sanchez was brought to the 40th Precinct stationhouse, where sources told CBS2 she staged the whole thing with four accomplices. Family issues are apparently at the root of her unhappiness.
The NYPD wants to talk to all involved before deciding who, if anyone, to charge.
