WEST PALM BEACH (CBSMiami) – A mother has been arrested for lying to authorities about the whereabouts of her young daughter.

Maria Irias, was taken into custody Sunday after telling police that her daughter was kidnapped.

An Amber Alert was issued early Sunday morning for 6-year-old Nataly Irias.

The story Maria told police was that she was with her daughter at the store when a black male offered to give them a ride home, which she accepted. Upon arrival at their home, the woman exited the guy’s vehicle only for him to suddenly drive off with her daughter still inside.

The mother gave police a description of the made-up man, as well.

Hours later, she admitted that the story was made up because she had been drinking most of the day and couldn’t remember where her daughter was.

Soon after, police located the girl and brought her to a safe location.

Maria Irias was arrested and charged with Child Neglect and Filing a False Reports of a Non-Existent Crime.
