(Harrisville-AP) -- Police think a notorious hoaxer might have struck Utah too.

Donna Walker is accused of conning an Indiana couple into thinking she was their daughter who was missing since 1986.

Now Harrisville police say she may have sent them on a wild goose chase last November.

The police chief says a caller claimed she was going to kill herself and two children she was driving with near a Wal-Mart.

Police dispatched units to find the woman but came up empty.

The names the caller used were linked to calls Walker may have made to authorities in Washington state.

Police say Walker has multiple personalities.

The 35-year old is being held in a Topeka, Kansas jail charged with identity deception for misleading the Indiana couple.
