Texas reporter vanishes after telling friend she was being followed

Courtney Roland

Authorities in Southeast Texas have located a sports reporter who disappeared Saturday after covering an elite college football camp. "Vara said the blue truck looped back around and parked behind her and Roland got out of her vehicle and the truck sped off. Vara said Roland and her was suppose to meet up, but Vara didn't hear from her again".

Roland's mother said she received a message hours later that read, "hello the owner of this phone Courtney. I am buying an iPad", it read.

Houston police said Roland, who was the subject of a search that started after she was reported missing by her roommate Sunday evening, had a reaction to medication she was taking, which caused her to become confused and disoriented.

Roland drives a 2015 white Jeep Cherokee with license plate HZC7778. She appeared to be unharmed, Houston police tweeted. "Call HPD missing person 832-394-1840". "She cared about other people", said dad Steve Roland.

But at Green Dragon, Levine said the move won't cause any changes and they won't slow growth plans or scale back any operations. Just Sessions' announcement has already sparked backlash from politicians on both sides of the aisle, he noted.

"We don't have too many details right now; we're just happy she's OK", he told the Houston Chronicle.

Roland's roommate told KPRC that the now-missing woman texted her Saturday, saying a "suspicious" man at a Walgreens was following her.

Friends and family of Courtney Roland have been posting on social media about her disappearance, hoping to get information on her whereabouts.

The Houston Police Department confirmed to NBC News early Monday that Roland had been reported missing but referred questions to its public affairs bureau which did not immediately respond.
