A woman who orchestrated her own fake kidnapping has received 10 days in detention at the end of an extensive search in Southwest China's Chongqing Municipality.|
Huang Lan, 43, and her husband You Jiang, 52, live in Dasheng Town of Chongqing's Yubei District and have two daughters.
The couple disagreed over finding jobs elsewhere to support the family, so Huang went to live with her sister in-law. After failing to find a job in 10 days, Huang left without telling anyone of her plans.
On June 23, the husband received a call from his wife, who sobbed and repeatedly said "let me go, I want to go home," sounding as if her mouth was covered.
You Jiang was able to determine the general location from the call, and immediately called the police.
Local police searched for the missing woman and traced her to a relative of her ex-husband, who confirmed that Huang had not been kidnapped. Huang was later found roaming the street.
At the police station, Huang said she wanted to test if her husband cared about her or not. To make her disappearance look like a kidnapping, she had covered her own mouth while speaking on the phone, and also removed the battery from her phone because she thought "it was fun."
In 40 hours, local police sent 29 officers to search for her.
The woman was put under administrative detention for 10 days for faking facts and disturbing public order.
