February 27, 2012

A Catawba County man was charged with falsely reporting he was kidnapped.

Storme Goforth’s mother reported him missing Feb. 14.

Goforth turned up at his mother’s workplace Feb. 18 and said he had been kidnapped, according to Long View police.

Lt. R.A. Coffey said an investigation revealed that Goforth had been sleeping in an abandoned house.

“He left home on his own accord,” Coffey said.

Goforth, 22, was charged with filing a false police report, a misdemeanor.

Coffey said Goforth likely faces probation for the charge.
