Sports reporter found after disappearing, claiming someone was following her

Courtney Faye Roland, a sports reporter from Houston, Texas, has been reported missing by concerned family and friends after last texting her roommate that she feared she was being followed by a suspicious blue truck that tailed her to her home.

Her family have filed a missing persons report with Houston police, ABC13 reports.

The 29-year-old's roommate told Houston television station KPRC that Roland sent a text at 12:30 a.m. Sunday, saying she was in her vehicle and being followed by a suspicious man.

She'd already last been seen at around 4 p.m. Saturday when she secured a Houston football preparing camp, KPRC detailed. She told Click 2 Houston that the blue truck looped back around and parked behind her before Roland got out of the vehicle.

"We do not suspect any foul play or any kind of suspicious activity attached to this incident", Cruz said.

Officers said Monday that they found Courtney Roland's white Jeep parked in a lot overnight near The Galleria, a mall in Houston.

Roland covers Texas A&M football for AggieYell.com and Rivals.com, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Her father, Steve Roland, said that police called him on Monday from a Chick-fil-A but he was not sure if that's where police found her.

"She seems pretty confused about everything", said Houston Police. Her Jeep later was found with her phone and other personal items inside. They say Roland later planned to meet up with her roommate but failed to appear.

Before she was found, many people took to Twitter to use the hashtag #HelpFindCourtney in an effort to locate her. Gov. Greg Abbott was among them. "I know Courtney would be praying for you, because that's the way she was".

Police say she appeared to have spent much of her time searching for her phone, which was found in her auto. Anyone who has seen her since that time is encouraged to call our Missing Persons Unit 713-394-1840.
