Police searching for missing Texas journalist

Friends and family of a Texas journalist say the 29-year-old woman vanished Saturday after sending a text message warning of a man following her inside a Walgreens, according to local reports.

She was seen just after 4 p.m., when she was covering a tryout for Team Texas Elite, a travel football club. Her roommate said Roland made it home and then left in her vehicle.

The roommate and Roland were supposed to meet up, but Courtney never showed. KPRC also added that Roland's mother received a text saying, "hello the owner of this phone Courtney".

Houston police did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
