UPDATE I: Police Search For Missing Miami Baby
As it turns out not only was 6 month old Riley Burchness never missing, he never existed. McCormic was arrested Friday morning on charges of giving false information to police officers.
A woman named Megan McCormic told police that a baby sitter never returned her 6-month-old on Dec. 23 from his home at the 5000 block of Northwest 7th Street in Miami.
Police canceled the search for the baby, whom the mother said was named Riley Buchness.
“Every question was just another lie covering up another lie until she just couldn’t hold it anymore,” Detective Freddy Ponze of the Miami Police Department said.
Police said on Friday that McCormic was lying and used the fake existence of the baby, with photographs she took from the Internet, to lure a former boyfriend, John Buchness, from Boston, who had traveled to Miami to meet his supposed son. McCormic fooled her former boyfriend into thinking she gave birth to his son, police said.
