Boy Staged Own Kiddnapping to Avoid Dentist
Fear of the dentist has hit the absurd, as a 12 year old French boy staged his own kidnapping to avoid a trip to the dentist. He had an incredible flair for detail describing his abductor to police as a muscular European man in his 30's with a black shirt, light jeans and a vertical scar on his right cheek. All lies.
Although, odontophobia, or fear of the dentist is common, faking a kidnapping is taking it to the extreme.
For a month, police searched to no avail. Skepticism grew after police viewed camera security footage, and re-questioned the child. He admitted the kidnapping was a rouse to avoid his dental appointment. His parents have not commented as of yet.
