Woman’s threat to hurt herself sparks search

ALBANY, Ga. — A woman’s call to the Georgia Crisis Hotline triggered a search for her, said Phyllis Banks, Albany Police Department spokeswoman.

A woman believed to be 53-year-old Tracey Murray threatened to harm herself, Banks said. The hotline passed the information on and police began to search for her. Because she used a cell phone, police could trace the call to an area 1,000 feet near Brierwood Drive. The Georgia State Patrol helicopter and ground patrols searched around Mock Road, The Marine base canals, Johnson Road and the Liberty Expressway with negative results, Banks added.

She is not going to kill herself. If she took her cell phone, I would bet money on this. Call off the search and let the drama queen go to the back burner. Albany is chock full of these types of folks. Even if she does kill herself, then cops will not stop her.

Thanks for being the first to say it. I've debated all morning on opening my trap about this, but knew I'd probably get piled on for it. I'd like to add a gripe about wasting taxpayer and law enforcement resources, too!
