Karen Matthews, from Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, is notorious for staging her own daughter’s kidnapping back in 2008. 

West Yorkshire Police found Shannon alive 24 days after she went missing concealed in the base of a divan bed.

Alongside her boyfriend’s uncle Michael Donovan, Karen was sentenced to eight years in prison for kidnapping, false imprisonment, and perverting the course of justice after Shannon was found in Donovan’s house.

The pair had been hoping to rake in charity money for her disappearance after being inspired by the huge amounts donated to the McCanns to aid the search for Madeleine.
