Md. Mom Found After Leaving Behind Daughter at Atlanta Airport

A Maryland mother was found 60 miles away from where she left her daughter with another couple in an Atlanta, Georgia, airport, according to Atlanta police.

Maranda Harvey, 29, from Odenton, Maryland, was located in Athens, Georgia, about 60 miles away from Atlanta on Saturday morning. She was found alone in a room at the Graduate Athens Hotel.

Atlanta police said Harvey was unharmed but “somewhat confused about what occurred the last 24 hours.” They said she was being evaluated by a health care provider.

Police were searching for her after she and her daughter, 4, drove from Maryland to the Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on Friday.

Police said after the mother and girl got to the airport, Harvey asked a couple to watch the girl while she went shopping. Investigators said Harvey never returned, but they discovered she rented another vehicle at the airport.

Police said the girl was reunited with family members while they searched for Harvey.
