AURORA, Colo. – Police would like to talk to the 15-year-old girl who staged her own abduction last week, triggering an Amber Alert and a lot of police resources wasted on her dumbass.
It all started with a 911 call (you can listen to it here) in which Jasmine Fike tells the dispatcher that she needs help, that someone is breaking into her home and trying to kidnap her. When police arrived at her home, they did not find Fike but did find signs of a struggle in her bedroom.
An Amber Alert was issued Wednesday morning in which a man named Franky Session, who has since been cleared of any wrongdoing, was named as a possible suspect.
Police still don’t know where Fike is, but they say she is travelling with known ciminals and that she had faked the entire abduction.
“We had dozens and dozens of people working on this case and what we learned is this is all a hoax,” says Det. Bob Friel. “There’s a bit of astonishment to the lengths she went to carry out her hoax. This was well-planned for a 15 year old.”
While their current priority is getting the teen back home safely, police may charge her once they do. They had pulled dozens of officers from their regular duties to help search for the teen, and had even got assistance from the Eff. Bee. Eye.
As for the man originally tied to the abduction, he says all this negative attention has tarnished his reputation as a convicted drug dealer.
“It’s been quite devastating, actually,” Frank Sessions said. “Everybody at first was asking me, ‘Where’s the girl?’ There’s been a lot of rude threats – a lot of things going on.”
Sessions has a long rap sheet of drug-related offenses, but says that doesn’t mean he had anything to do with Fike’s disappearance and he doesn’t even really know Fike that well. He told reporters he met her once when he gave her and her boyfriend a ride.
Fike’s mother says that’s bullshit, that Session knew her daughter well and that she had even lived with him off-and-on, but I totally get why a 37-year-old convicted drug dealer would lie about a possible romantic relationship with a 15-year-old girl.
