HOUSTON (AP) — The latest on the search for a missing journalist in Houston:

6:45 a.m.

Houston police say they have found Courtney Roland safe and unharmed.

She is now being taken to a hospital for evaluation.

Roland had been missing since Sunday evening.

6:20 a.m.

Police in Houston say they’re investigating the disappearance of a sports journalist who told her roommate she believed was being followed.

Police say 29-year-old Courtney Roland was last seen Sunday evening walking alone in a store at a shopping mall.

Her Jeep later was found with her phone and other personal items inside. Her purse was found at a nearby business.

Family members told KHOU-TV that Roland texted her roommate Saturday to say a suspicious man was following her in a blue truck. Roland and her roommate intended to meet up later that day, but she never appeared.

Gov. Greg Abbott on Sunday retweeted a plea to help find Roland with the hashtag #HelpFindCourtney.

Roland covers Texas A&M athletics for Rivals, a Yahoo!-owned online publication focusing on college sports.
