Police detained a woman on Wednesday suspected of creating and spreading false information, after she allegedly hid her son and reported him missing to police on Friday in Yueqing, Zhejiang province.

The 33-year-old woman, reportedly in bad relationship with her husband - who was doing business in another city - made up the incident to test whether her husband cared for her and their son, police said in a statement on Wednesday.

The father believed his son was missing and posted on social media on Friday that he would give a reward of 500,000 yuan ($72,800) if the person who took the boy returned him, and he would not press charges.
