Missing Baby Update: It Was All A Lie

Talk about waste of time and resources! I can't understand why someone would make up such a drastic lie just to cover up a miscarriage. Police are saying it was a desperate attempt to fix a broken relationship. Nearly 20 detectives worked the case during Christmas Eve and Christmas. Now police want McCormick to pay for the resources that were used in the search.

Police: Missing Baby Story Was A Hoax


The search in Florida for a missing toddler with ties to Massachusetts has been called off - because it was a hoax.

Miami police had been looking for help in their search for 6-month-old Riley Buchness, who was reportedly last seen by his mother December 23 in Miami. 
It turns out there is no Camille and there is no Riley.


Miami police said Friday that the whole story was fabricated by the woman who claimed to be the missing child's mother.


That woman, Megan McCormick, has now been charged with filing a false police report.
According to Miami police detective Freddy Ponce, McCormick made up the story about her missing 6-month old son to cover up the fact that she had a miscarriage six months ago and didn't want her ex-boyfriend, John Buchness, to know the truth.

Police say Buchness had no knowledge of the miscarriage and was in Miami to meet his son for the first time.

That's when the story started to fall apart.
