Thanks for posting. I was concerned. The police were driving around my neighborhood last and actually knocked on my moms door. My granny has Alzheimer's and hear that someone was missing in the area struck home for me. Glad they are safe.

I know everyone involved must have been frantic and I am glad they found the lady. Something relating to this happened that scared the crap
Out of me and my wife.We have only lived here about six months and we didn't know about this.when the lady went missing an auto call rang our house at 3:30 am about her.we mostly use our cell phones,so we only have one land line in the living room. We almost never make it to the phone before it goes to voicemail ,but it scared my wife so much she got it on the third ring. we don't like calls at that time. No one that calls at 3:30 in the morning is calling with anything good. Actually it robo called again a few minutes after the first. I was just wondering if this happened to anyone else?What are your thoughts? I was kind of upset. My wife said it was Ok to try to find the lady.I told her I understand about that,but we live 5miles from town ,the call said she was missing from second street.

If it was ur mom would you want auto call notifying ppl? I wouldn't mind auto call waking me up if I could maybe help save a life, the paper said she lived on French Ave.
