Woman Charged With Filing False Report Leading To Amber Alert

Tuesday, September 2, 2014

A Chattanooga woman has been charged with filing a false report after she falsely said her child was missing, setting off an Amber Alert.

At approximately 12:20 p.m., the Chattanooga Police Department responded to 4026 Shallowford Road in reference to a child abduction.

Letrice Patterson, 32, the child’s aunt, said her silver 2010 Mercury Muron was stolen and the child was left in the vehicle. 

Officers on the scene notified dispatch and an Amber Alert was activated.

Police said every available Officer from surrounding areas and jurisdictions responded. 

Officers spent approximately an hour investigating the incident while an intensive search for the child and the vehicle were being conducted.

Police investigators responded to the scene with the major crimes division and began the interview process where it became apparent Ms. Patterson’s story was not consistent, police said.

The child was later found safe at school and had been dropped off by Ms. Patterson at 8:15 a.m. earlier this morning.

Ms. Patterson was transported to the County Jail and charged with filing a false report during a criminal investigation.

The vehicle has not been recovered.
