A Houston sports reporter went missing over the weekend after never
returning home from covering a football event Saturday, telling friends
later that night that she believed she was being followed.
Roland, who covers Texas A&M football for
AggieYell.com and Rivals.com, was last seen walking alone in a store in a
mall about 5:40 p.m. Sunday, Houston police said.
Police did not immediately specify which mall via Twitter
but said Monday morning that investigators had found Roland's Jeep
Cherokee in a parking lot near the Galleria, at 5006 Westheimer. Her
phone and other belongings were found inside the car, while her purse
was found at a nearby business, police said.
Prior to Sunday, friends said on social media that Roland was last seen leaving a Team Texas Elite football tryout in an Uber.
About 12:30 a.m. on January 7, friends say 29-year-old
Roland texted her roommate to say she was worried that a blue truck was
following her just after leaving a Walgreens, at an unknown location.
That was the last friends or family had heard from her, they say.
