AVONDALE, Ariz. —

Police say a 22-year-old suburban Phoenix woman has admitted she lied about being kidnapped in order to meet her boyfriend in Mexico.

Avondale police say Jessica Rodriguez's family told police on March 30 she called from a blocked number saying she was being held against her will.

Her family believed that her boyfriend, 19-year-old Jesus Antonio Araque Mondragon, had arranged her kidnapping after fleeing to Mexico. Mondragon is a person of interest in a January homicide.

The Nogales Police Department on Saturday notified Avondale police that Rodriguez was at a border crossing station.

Avondale police say Rodriguez told them Tuesday that she had lied to her family about being kidnapped because she knew her mother would not let her see Mondragon.

Rodriguez has been released while police review possible charges.
