Last week, police in Georgia issued an Amber Alert for this 12-year-old girl, who they believe has been kidnapped and is possibly in "extreme" danger.
Earlier this week, the girl called an Atlanta-area reporter to say she had not been abducted.
"I was not kidnapped. I ran away, and I planned on running away for like a month or so. I have like $500 or so," Brooklyn Smith told WSB-TV's Tony Thomas.
