A mother worried about the safety of her daughter said she went missing after going to a Clayton County hospital. 

Rita Futrell told her mother, Judy Edwards, she was being seen at Southern Regional Medical Center in Riverdale at around 7:30 a.m. on April 12, but did not specify why.

Edwards and a family member from Kentucky traveled to the hospital where Futrell was supposed to wait for them. When they got there at around 5 p.m., the staff told them she had been discharged at 9 a.m.

She was described as 5-feet-7-inches tall and weighing about 125 pounds. Officers were not given a description of what she could have been wearing. The police also don't know which way she could have gone.
