15 Women Now Allege 'Abandonment' by Warner Robins Obstetrician

Warner Robins attorney Kelly Burke says 15 women now allege that a Warner Robins obstetrician abandoned them when they went into labor.

When Burke originally filed a complaint against Dr. Paul Harnetty with the Georgia Medical Composite Board in October, there were two women.

Both of them said Harnetty cared for them during their entire pregnancy, but did not tell them until their delivery date or late in the pregnancy, that he could not deliver their babies. That's because Macon and Houston County hospitals say Dr. Harnetty does not have privileges to practice there.

In Search for Missing Perry Man, Dogs Track Scent at Macon Landfill

In the continuing search for a missing Perry man, emergency crews revisited the Macon landfill Wednesday, where they say dogs have detected a scent.

However, search and rescue officials say it's too soon to say whether that scent will lead to 72-year-old Robert Lee Green.

Assistant Fire Chief Cliff Rushin says the search for Green brought them back to the murky pond behind the landfill where Green's truck was discovered after he went missing Friday. Crews dragged the water where they say search dogs followed their noses.

Pink ribbons marked locations where the dogs continuously "got hits" Wednesday morning, and where crews say they will focus their search.

"They all seem to think that there's something in this area," Rushin says. "Whether this is our missing person or not -- that has yet to be determined."

Search Continues for Missing Alzheimer's Patient at Macon Landfill

Authorities ended Monday's search at around 4 p.m. for a missing Perry man who disappeared on Friday

Captain Dewey Davis of the Macon-Bibb Fire Department says they've been looking for the man for three days and they'll resume the search on Wednesday.

Perry Police Detective David Hill says 72-year-old Robert Lee Green left his home around 2 p.m. on Friday on Cathy Street. That's near General Courtney Hodges Boulevard in Perry.

A Macon police incident report says that Perry police contacted them and said Green's cell phone tracked to the Macon landfill, off 11th Street south of the city's downtown, on Saturday.

Police haven't been able to find the cell phone but have narrowed the search area down to several hundred acres.

Authorities did recover Green's Ford F-150 pick up truck near a pond in the landfill.

Police called out a Georgia State Patrol helicopter that day to look for him, then searched again on Sunday without success.
