Cobb mother found two weeks after she was reported missing 

A Smyrna mother of two reported missing has been found healthy after police searched for her two weeks.

Valerie Maynard, 53, had last been seen Sept. 3. Her white Land Rover was found Sept. 5 in the Pigeon Hill parking lot on Burnt Hickory Road unlocked with her phone and purse still inside.

Cobb County Sgt. Wayne Delk previously said that Maynard may have been transient due to the number of personal items found in her SUV.

“Due to privacy concerns, the circumstances leading up to her missing status as well as her current location are not being released,” Delk said on Tuesday.

Court records show Maynard and her husband had recently gone through a divorce. 

The judge ruled that their two young children live with their father but did allow Maynard limited visitation. She got only the Range Rover in the divorce and was ordered to pay her ex-husband $30,000 in payments, court records indicate.

A judge made a final ruling on her divorce case on Aug. 1, records show. The divorce was first reported by Channel 2 Action News. Maynard’s attorney filed a motion for a new trial on Aug. 30, days before the Cobb mother went missing.
