Calpurnia comes to the courthouse to deliver a note to Atticus telling him Jem and Scout are missing, and have been missing for some time.

(Of course, they aren't missing; they are in the courtroom watching.)

In Chapter 21, Calpurnia has arrived at the courthouse to give Atticus a note that tell him that Jem and Scout are missing and have not been home since just after one in the afternoon. The children are found in the colored balcony watching the trial. Atticus says the children need to go home to eat, but he says that they can return to hear the verdict.
