Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
Earlier today, police said the case wasn't what it seemed-- now there's apparently a lot more to the story.
Police say Audrey Seiler changed her story.
She says she was NOT abducted from her apartment, but was abducted from somewhere else.
Police say Seiler made the confession after being confronted with inconsistencies in her story.
They say Seiler told them she left her apartment because she ''wanted to be alone," but that she was abducted elsewhere.
She was missing for four days. Jennifer Donelan joins us now from Madison, Wisconsin with an update on the story.
