In America


Police are searching for a sports reporter who has gone missing in the Houston area.

CBS affiliate KHOU reports that police found 29-year-old Courtney Roland’s Jeep Cherokee in the Galleria area just after midnight on Sunday, but Roland remained missing as of Monday morning.

Police say the Rivals.com Texas A&M reporter’s phone was found inside the vehicle. Her purse with an iPad, computer and credit cards were also all found intact somewhere inside the Galleria.

KHOU 11 reports that Roland, who last seen wearing a camouflage fleece sweater and an orange hat, was last heard from Saturday around 4 p.m. She texted a roommate, telling her a suspicious man at a Walgreens was following her. The man followed her in a blue truck all the way home, but then he allegedly drove off when she got out.

The roommate was supposed to meet up with Roland but she never showed up, the station reported.

Roland’s parents are now pleading for information.

“If somebody has hers, we just want to tell them we love you too. And I know Courtney would be praying for you, because that’s the way she was. She cared for other people,” said dad Steve Roland.
