Woman arrested for falsely reporting kidnapping

Update: Woman who reported kidnapping arrested for filing false report

Lisa Bode, 44 years old of Ball Ground, who reported that she was kidnapped on Interstate 575 Monday afternoon was located overnight in Fannin County. After interviewing Bode investigators charged her with False Report of a Crime and Giving False Statements. She is currently in the Cherokee County Adult Detention Center with an $11,880.00 bond.

It appears Bode was dealing with numerous personal problems which lead to her fabricating the abduction story, according to a press release from the Cherokee Sheriff's office.

Lisa, if you get a chance to read this I just wanted to let you know that what you did was stupid. My daughter saw you walking back toward Jasper as she and her friends were heading to Canton. She was so upset that she did not stop and assist you that she cried about her lack of a sense of community. Needless to say it is stunts like this that make people cold and indifferent. I told her as she was getting off the phone with the police for her not to beat herself up that it was more than likely a hoax. I based that on the fact no kidnapper would put someone in a trunk with a cell phone. You truly are in need of help.

I wish we could all find out why Lisa Bode choose to call 911. I attempt to be open-minded, I can not wrap my head around the reasons she called wolf?
