HOUSTON – Police in Houston say they're investigating the disappearance of a sports journalist who told her roommate she believed she was being followed.
Police say 29-year-old Courtney Roland was last seen Sunday evening walking alone in a store at a shopping mall.
Her Jeep later was found with her phone and other personal items inside. Her purse was found at a nearby business.
Family members told KHOU-TV that Roland texted her roommate Saturday to say a suspicious man was following her in a blue truck. Roland and her roommate intended to meet up later that day, but she never appeared.
Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday retweeted a plea to help find Roland with the hashtag #HelpFindCourtney.
Roland covers Texas A&M athletics for Rivals, a Yahoo!-owned online publication focusing on college sports.
