A 15 year old boy cried wolf and is now charged with mischief.

Elgin OPP received a call on Saturday from the teen that he had been kidnapped by two people and was in the back of a SUV, driving on the 401.

Police located the vehicle and spoke to all the occupants.

Police say the boy was unhappy that his parents had not allowed him to go to a friend’s house.

St. Thomas-Elgin paramedics had to attend the scene, as the youth was hyperventilating.

The boy was charged with public mischief.
