Police search for missing journalist in Houston area

Police are trying to locate Houston-based digital sports reporter Courtney Roland, who disappeared after leaving a football camp with a driver from Uber.

"Our officers arrived, confirmed it was her and arranged she be checked at an area hospital".

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.

Update 9:36 a.m. January 8: Police said they found Texas A&M University football reporter Courtney Roland on Monday morning after she was reported missing over the weekend in Houston.

Roland was supposed to meet her roommate later, but never showed. It also said that Roland's mother received a text on Sunday from missing daughter's phone number saying: "Hello the owner of this phone Courtney. I am buying an iPad".

Senators Refer Dossier Author to DOJ in Criminal Referral
On Friday, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said the department had received the referral and will review it. Leon said the subpoena could "reasonably produce information relevant" to the committee's inquiry.

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.

This is a developing story. CrimeOnline will provide an update when more information is available. She was driving a 2015, white Jeep Cherokee, license plate HZC7778.

The Houston Police Department's missing persons bureau can be reached on 832-394-1816.

The roommate said he followed Roland to her home in a blue truck as she was parked in the driveway. There is dispute online as to whether she was last seen in an Uber or another vehicle.
