You can take this Florida woman's name out of consideration for Mother of the Year.
29-year-old Maria Irias is under arrest after she called 911 to report that her six-year-old daughter had been kidnapped. She told police she and her daughter were at a supermarket and accepted a stranger's offer of a ride home. But when she got out of the car, the driver sped off with the child. It turns out, though, that Irias made up the whole story when in fact she had been drinking all day and had simply forgotten where her daughter was.
Authorities issued an Amber Alert for the girl and asked for the public's help in finding her. After Irias admitted to making up the story, she was arrested and charged with child neglect and falsely reporting a crime. The little girl was found unharmed. (Sun-Sentinel)
The most important thing here is that the child is all right. When she reported the fake kidnapping, she also gave a description of the fake kidnapper.
