Rivals Texas A&M reporter Courtney Roland goes missing in Houston area


'Thank Jesus!' her friend Brian Perroni, who had been working with the family to share updates of her disappearance, tweeted.

Monday morning she was spotted at a Texas Chick-Fil-A this morning by someone who recognized her and called the police, ABC's Courtney Fischer tweeted. No other details were released and authorities say more information will be provided later Monday.

Another post, made by a friend of hers, she was anxious "that she was being followed by a blue truck leaving Walgreens".

Roland was supposed to meet the roommate, but was not heard from again.

Police took Roland to a hospital to be checked out.

Investigators concerns intensified after Roland's white Jeep was found by officers that night in a parking in the 5000 block of Westheimer Road. Her purse was found elsewhere.

It is not yet clear why Roland disappeared or where she has been during that time.
