Patch finds out the difference between emergency alerts and how they are used.
Someone is missing, and police send out a "Mattie's Call". But what is a Mattie’s Call? How does it differ from a Levi’s Call and how do police know when to issue one? Patch caught up with Cobb police spokesman Michael Smith to learn more. He explained that there are different criteria for the two alerts. “The state—and it’s not just Georgia—has set it so the system isn’t overly used,” Smith said. “When we use it, we want people to pay attention and as with anything else, if you get too much of it and it’s not pertinent information, people start ignoring it. That’s what we don’t want from any of those things.” Get word of Mattie's Calls and Levi's Calls in your email when you sign up for Nixle alerts. Here's a link to sign up. Here’s how …

Maggie Adams, 16, had been missing for two weeks.
The mother of the West Cobb teen who had been missing for two weeks said she is “very relieved” that her daughter was found by the Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office late Tuesday afternoon. Maggie Adams, 16, had last been seen on April 10 at her Marietta school, Cobb Performing Learning Center. Her disappearance resulted in a widespread search that included flyers, an explosion on Facebook and Twitter, and stories in area media. “We would just like everybody to know how grateful we are and how amazed we are at how many people stepped up,” said her mother, Sally Miller. Adams was found in a house in Woodstock—the city her classmates said she might be headed to—after someone recognized her and called the police, Miller said. Miller didn’t have…

Maggie Adams, 16, was last seen April 10 at her high school, Cobb Performing Learning Center on Joyner Avenue in Marietta.
A West Cobb family is asking for help in finding their missing teenager. “We’re concerned for her safety,” said Sally Miller, mother of 16-year-old Maggie Adams. Adams has been missing since April 10, when she was last seen at her high school, Cobb Performing Learning Center on Joyner Avenue in Marietta. It’s from the school that the family has the only clue about Adams’ possible whereabouts. “The only information we have so far is some of the kids at her school said she mentioned something about Woodstock," Miller said, adding the family doesn't know anyone in the Cherokee County city. Adams was at the Cobb Youth Detention Center a few weeks ago, and it’s possible she met someone there, Miller said. The family lives in the Rosemont …

Authorities searched Friday for the body of a person missing since 2004 after a tip out of Florida.
Cobb County police received a tip last week that they’d find a body just south of McEachern High next to a garage in the Powder Springs area, and a cadaver dog seemed to verify the claim. But as authorities dug and dug Friday next to the detached garage on New Macland Road, they found nothing, Cobb County police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce said. “There’s nothing that panned out other than a dog hitting on that spot,” he said. “If truly there was a body there at some point, it’s not there now.” Cobb police were searching for the body of a person missing since 2004. The case stems from a police agency in Florida, which is where the tip came from, and local authorities checked for the body to help the Florida agency, Pierce said. Because that …
