HOUSTON: Courtney Roland of Rivals.com has gone missing after covering a recruiting event in Houston on Saturday, according to Brittany Taylor of Click 2 Houston.
The 29-year-old, who covers Texas A&M football, was at Team Texas Elite tryouts and last seen just after 4 p.m. local time.
Richard Davenport of Fox Sports Arkansas reported Roland texted her roommate to say she was being followed by a man in a blue truck. While the Team Texas Elite account originally reported she was last heard from in an Uber, she had apparently gone out later Saturday night in her own car.
Roland’s mother then reportedly received a text from her phone that read, “hello the owner of this phone Courtney. I am buying an iPad.”
Many have used social media to help find the missing reporter, including UFC President Dana White:
