Authorities searching for missing Cobb County woman

Authorities are searching for a 55-year-old Cobb County woman who went missing between September 9 and 10, according to the Cobb County Police Department.

Theresa Mae Murphy, from Cobb County, boarded a “Wanda Coach” bus in Atlanta, Georgia on Saturday, September 9 for New York City.  She spoke with a family member while in South Carolina.

The bus arrived in New York City on Sunday, September 10, but police can't confirm that Murphy was on it, nor has she communicated with her family since.

During the trip, the bus made stops in Charlotte, N.C., Durham, N.C., and Richmond, VA.
