— A Baltimore man is charged with filing a false police report after telling Harnett County authorities his girlfriend kidnapped his 2-year-old daughter over the weekend.

Davontae David Caldwell called Dunn police on Saturday night to report his girlfriend, Mazda Dixon, kidnapped his daughter, Jada Caldwell, from a gas station on Interstate 95. But Dunn police said Davontae Caldwell stopped cooperating and communicating with officers on Sunday.

Police spent four days searching for Dixon and Jada Caldwell. Dunn police on Wednesday said the child and the girlfriend did not exist, and Davontae Caldwell does not have a child.

Dunn police said the FBI, National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and law enforcement agencies from Dunn to Maryland were involved in the search effort.

    Dunn PD issued a statement regarding the intent of false report.

    I don't think moderators are trying to suppress this info so I'm going to comment here that apparently he was trying to manipulate transportation back to Baltimore.

    His sorry self should have to pay back every single dime it cost taxpayers to conduct the search--and ANY free stuff he gets should be terminated!!!

    Didn't WRAL report that the girl and child were found safe yesterday? Now they don't exist?
