MEMPHIS, TN (WMC-TV) - A 16-year-old girl originally thought to be kidnapped actually crawled into the trunk of a car on her own this afternoon, authorities tell Action News 5.

According to Shelby County Sheriff's Department spokesperson Steve Shular, the incident started near I-40 and Canada Road, when the girl's mother reported that her daughter had been kidnapped by an 18-year-old man.

The mother followed the car and called deputies, who stopped the car at Goodlett Farms and Whitten Road in Cordova.

Deputies now say the girl crawled into the trunk from the back seat of the car.
