Sports reporter Courtney Roland mysteriously vanished on the evening of Jan. 6, although NBC now reports she's since been found reportedly unharmed. Roland was on her way back from covering a Texas A&M elite football camp in the Heights area of Houston when she reportedly texted her roommate about being followed by a suspicious man in a blue truck. Following the text, her friends, co-workers, and family reported her as missing and asked for help on social media.
A whole day passed and no one heard from her, leading many to fear the worst. However, Houston police found her white 2015 Jeep near the Galleria mall in the early hours of the morning. Weirdly enough, her phone was found inside the car, while her purse was found at an unidentified business nearby. Around the same area, police officers eventually discovered Roland unharmed without her belongings. Officers explained on Twitter, "She appears unharmed. She'll be taken to an area hospital for an evaluation. We are not providing the location where she was found or hospital at this time."
It remains unclear what happened to Roland over the weekend, but it's great news that she's been found. Her friend, Autumn Vara, posted on Facebook, celebrating her return, "Courtney has been found by police and about to be reunited with her family. Thank you everyone for your thoughts and prayers. Please respect the family during this emotional time."
