A woman who called 911 to report a home invasion that led police to believe she was kidnapped by her ex-boyfriend has now been charged with possession of methamphetamine.

It all happened around 11 p.m. at a home on the 300 block of Tiffany Lane in Canton.

Police say they received a 911 call about a possible home invasion and when they went to investigate, they saw a vehicle quickly leaving the scene. When officers tried to make contact with the woman who called police, she didn't answer her door.

They believed the woman, identified as 29 year-old Brittany Young, may have been possibly abducted by her ex-boyfriend, 32 year-old Calvin Elliott. The couple was believed to be traveling in a black, 2007 Acura TL with the Georgia license tag RHC9353.

After a lengthy search that lasted most of the overnight hours, Young was located safe around 4:30 a.m. at a home in Canton. Elliott was later found in Pickens County.

After further investigation, it was found that Young had not been kidnapped. She was then charged with possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug-related objects. Elliott has been charged with fleeing or attempting to elude a police officer.
