11-Year-Old Florida Girl Arrested After Reporting Fake Kidnapping To 911


Port Orange, Fla. (VCSO) – An 11-year-old Port Orange girl has been arrested after she texted 911 Wednesday morning to falsely report that her friend was kidnapped by an armed male driving a white van on South I-95 in Oak Hill.

Multiple deputies responded, along with Edgewater, New Smyrna Beach and Port Orange police, and Air One, to search for the suspect vehicle but no van was found.

The saga began at 9:45 a.m. when a dispatcher at the Sheriff’s Communications Center advised of a suspicious incident reported by text message. The girl said her 14-year-old friend had been abducted and she was following in a blue Jeep. For the next hour and a half, the girl texted updates including a description of the male suspect and that he had a gun. Ultimately, deputies were directed to a home in Port Orange by investigative means tracking the cell phone used to text 911.

At 10:23 a.m., deputies arrived at the home on Poppy Lane and contacted the girl’s father, who said she was inside with her family. As deputies approached the girl, she was holding her cell phone, which was ringing as she walked out to meet the deputies. When answered, Volusia Sheriff’s Dispatch was on the line and deputies verified they were on scene.

Ava Rose Langone, told deputies she got the idea to prank 911 through a YouTube challenge and thought it “would be funny.”

However, Sheriff Mike Chitwood isn’t amused. “This kind of prank activity is dangerous – we’re going to investigate every incident but today it wasted valuable resources that might have helped someone else who legitimately needed our help.”

Ava is charged with making a false police report concerning the use of a firearm in a violent manner, a felony, and misuse of 911, a misdemeanor. She was transported to the Family Resource Center for processing, then transferred to the Volusia Regional Juvenile Detention Center.
