The mother of a young child who was reported missing and later found safe is now accused of giving police false information.

East Point police say 28 year old Cyndi Cuffie was being held in the East Point Jail on a felony charge of making false statements to police.

Investigators say Cuffie told them her 3 year old daughter, Kamile, disappeared from the 1400 block of Elizabeth Lane around 5 p.m. Tuesday. Police said Kamile was found safe later that evening. She has been placed in state custody.

East Point police Lt. Cliff Chandler tells Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB-TV that investigators believe the incident is a hoax perpetrated by the mother. Authorities haven't commented on a possible reason as to why police say they were misled.
