OKALOOSA COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - An Okaloosa County woman is facing charges after she allegedly lied about an attempted kidnapping.

Deputies say Geosie Mitchell, 21, told them two men attempted to kidnap her at Ferry Park in Fort Walton Beach on Monday.

They got a tip Wednesday about the location of a vehicle matching the description of the van Mitchell said the "kidnappers" tried to force her into.

During a follow-up interview Thursday, deputies say Mitchell admitted she made the whole thing up. She's charged with making a false report and faces up to a year in jail.
