Kids charged for 911 prank calls

AKRON, Ohio Officials said the children begged to be rescued, saying they were being held in a dark room.

The calls began last Friday night and continued into Saturday. Officials said the children described local landmarks instead of ones where they claimed to be.

Authorities launched a massive search, then learned the children, a 13-year old girl and her 8-year-old cousin, were making prank phone calls because they were bored.

The pranksters will face charges.
