Kids will do and say the darndest things to get out of going to the dentist, but this one is the grandest of all.

According to Yahoo, last month, a 12-year-old in France disappeared.

Then when police found him hiding in some bushes, he told them he'd just been abducted.

But he managed to get away, and was able to give them a pretty detailed description of the kidnapper.

He said it was a white guy in his 30s, about 5-foot-7, wearing a black shirt and jeans, with a scar on his right cheek.

He also described his car, so they had a sketch artist draw a picture of the guy and for the past month, they've been looking for him.

But they realized it didn't add up after they went over security footage from the area where the kid said it happened.

So last week, they decided to interview him again, and he finally admitted he had not been kidnapped, he was just hiding in the bushes because he didn't want to go to the dentist.

It's not clear how much money was spent searching for the guy.  It's also not clear if the kid's parents will have to pay for it.
