KHOU 11 News learned over the weekend Roland, a sports journalist who covers the Texas A&M Aggies, was last heard from Saturday around 4 p.m. near the Heights area where she lives. She texted a roommate, telling her a suspicious man at a Walgreens was following her. The man followed her in a blue truck all the way home, but then he allegedly drove off when she got out.

The roommate and Roland were supposed to meet up, but Courtney never showed.

The reporter’s parents are now pleading for information on her whereabouts.

“If somebody has her, we just want to tell them we love you too. And I know Courtney would be praying for you, because that’s the way she was. She cared for other people,” said dad Steve Roland.

She was last seen wearing a camouflage fleece sweater and an orange hat. Roland is a sports reporter covering Aggie football.
