Houston area sports reporter Courtney Roland made national news Monday morning and was trending on Twitter worldwide as she went missing for over 24 hours.
Many believed that the 29-year-old was kidnapped as she had texted her roommate Saturday that she was being followed home by a man in a blue truck. The roommate said that Roland said that the man sped off after Roland got out of her car, but that was the last the roommate heard from Roland.
Roland apparently had her car broken into a few weeks earlier and was on high alert.
Here is a timeline of events.
