Girl fakes illness to end kidnapping in Ky.

Nov 24, 2010 8:23:00 AM - thestate.com
A South Carolina girl abducted by her father faked illness to set up her rescue in Kentucky.

Donnie Lee Shelton brought his daughter to the emergency room of Baptist Regional Medical Center in Corbin early Tuesday. Eight-year-old Elysha was complaining of abdominal pains.

WYMT-TV in Hazard reports a nurse became suspicious when the girl wouldn't make eye contact with her. Staff checked the Amber Alert website, then called police.

Hospital official John Henson says the girl faked being sick after she saw a hospital sign.

The 46-year-old Shelton was arrested and taken to the Whitley County Jail.
