A Texas A&M football reporter has been reported missing after covering Texas elite football camp in the Heights area of Houston, her family said.

Police tweeted Monday morning that the passer-by had seen news reports that Roland was missing and recognized her near Interstate 610 in west Houston.

Courtney Roland, 29, was found "unharmed" in the area near the Galleria shopping mall Monday morning, Houston police tweeted.

Roland's parents pleaded for information.

The family have since filed a missing persons report with Houston police.

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

Roland had last been seen Sunday evening walking alone in a store at the shopping mall. "The last communication was via text at 12:30 am 1/7/18", she wrote.

Flat mate Autumn Vara already said Roland messaged her Saturday night about a suspicious man she saw at Walgreens who took after her home. "I am buying an iPad", according to Click 2 Houston. The department confirmed the reporter's cell phone and other personal items were inside the vehicle.

Throughout social media, Roland's peers and colleagues posted about the reporter's disappearance.

Officers began searching for her over the weekend after family members say she texted her roommate about a suspicious man following her. Last heard wearing Remington hat and camo and in a white Jeep Cherokee.

Before she was found, many people took to Twitter to use the hashtag #HelpFindCourtney in an effort to locate her. Gov. Greg Abbott was among them.
