Courtney's roommate said a suspicious man followed her home in a blue truck.

Update 10:39 a.m. EST Jan. 8: A Texas A&M University football reporter who vanished in Houston over the weekend was found under an overpass Monday after she was recognized by a passerby, police said. "She was last confirmed seen 1/6/18 leaving football camp in Houston", a social media post reads.

Police said that they do not suspect any foul play, and have no reason to believe any crimes were committed.

The roommate said he followed Roland to her home in a blue truck as she was parked in the driveway.

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 athletics for Rivals, a Yahoo!-owned online publication focusing on college sports.

The reporter's roommate told KPRC-TV that she last heard from her on Sunday.

Express UK reports Ms Roland's mother received a suspicious message from her daughter's phone.

Brian Perroni, a reporter with sports news site 247Sports and who described himself as a family friend, told NBC News that Roland's auto, purse and phone were found in the Galleria mall area Sunday afternoon.

But in the early hours of Monday morning, Brian Perroni, a former colleague, wrote on Twitter that her vehicle, purse, wallet and phone have been found in the Houston Galleria area. She appeared to be unharmed, Houston police tweeted. Roland and her roommate meant to meet up later that day, but she never appeared.

The 29-year-old was last seen Sunday evening walking alone in a store at a shopping mall, police say. "I know Courtney would be praying for you, because that's the way she was. She cared for other people". The family have since filed a missing persons report with Houston police.
