Missing Georgia mom found safe 2 weeks after disappearance

A Georgia mother of two reported missing has been found healthy after police searched for her two weeks.

Valerie Maynard, 53, of Smyrna, had last been seen Sept. 3. Her white Land Rover was found Sept. 5 in the Pigeon Hill parking lot on Burnt Hickory Road unlocked with her phone and purse still inside.

Cobb County Sgt. Wayne Delk previously said that Maynard may have been transient due to the number of personal items found in her SUV.

“Due to privacy concerns, the circumstances leading up to her missing status as well as her current location are not being released,” Delk said on Tuesday.
