Her purse was found at a nearby business.

She was last seen at 11:50 p.m. local time on Saturday, Jan. 6, 2018, according to her friend Aumtumn Vara.

Friends said her vehicle, purse, wallet and phone were found in the Houston Galleria area.

Roland's parents pleaded for information.

Houston police say a sports journalist who went missing after telling a friend she feared she was being followed has been found unharmed. She was concerned that she was being followed by a blue truck leaving Walgreens.

Houston Police said Ms Roland appeared unharmed and was taken to hospital for evaluation.

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.

The roommate told KHOU that the man followed Roland to her home in a blue truck. "The last communication was via text at 12:30 am 1/7/18", she wrote.

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

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

Perroni revealed yesterday that Roland had been spotted in the Houston Galleria at around 5.45pm on Sunday, wearing a camo fleece and an orange Remington hat.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Houston Police Department at 832-394-1840. "Prayers out to her family during this hard time". Her auto was found, with her phone and belongings inside it, near the mall overnight.
