NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The New Orleans Police Department arrested a woman after detectives say she filed a false report that her child had been kidnapped.
According to a statement from NOPD, 29-year-old Andrewnisha Delmore was arrested and charged for an incident that occurred on March 17.
Detectives say Delmore reported her child had been kidnapped during a domestic dispute, leading officers from multiple NOPD districts to conduct an extensive search across the city.

Demore was booked on a charge of Filing False Public Records.
Police continue to investigate the incident. Anyone with any information is urged to contact NOPD or Crimestoppers.
