To Kill a Mockingbird

When the trial is in motion, (going), why does Calpurnia say to Atticus the children went missing, also why does Heck Tate lie to Atticus and Arthur Radley about the trial? (If that's what it says.)

Calpurnia can't find the children (who've been forbidden to attend the trial), so she goes to tell Atticus they're missing. Ironically, they are at the trial sitting in the balcony.

The children are forbidden from interrupting the trial case so they just sit in the balcony until the trial is over. Just what Jill said.

They're forbidden?

Yes Allie, they're forbidden to interrupt the case.
