Silver Alert Success Story: Georgia couple found in Alabama
On June 10, 2012, a Mattie’s Call was issued for Virgil and Marie Haney. The Haneys went missing in Rome, Georgia and were found safe 115 miles away in Cullman, Alabama.
From the news story in the Rome News-Tribune:
Family members of Virgil and Marie Haney were overcome with relief after the elderly couple, who went missing Saturday, was found in Alabama early Monday morning.
Virgil Haney, 90, was pulled over by law enforcement officers in Jefferson County on Monday morning, and Marie Haney, 83, was found walking around in the rain near Cullman, said the couple’s grandson Daniel Morgan.
“She wasn’t with him, she got out of the vehicle somewhere near Cullman,” said Morgan. “Law enforcement there found her walking around in the rain Monday morning in distress. It wasn’t long after that they found my grandfather in Jefferson County.”
