HOUSTON (AP) – A sports journalist who was found after she went missing over the weekend told police officers that she had a severe reaction to medication that led her to become confused and disoriented, police said Monday.
The disappearance of Courtney Roland, 29, caused alarm after she sent nonsensical texts to her mother and her roommate called police Sunday saying Roland had expressed concern that a suspicious man was following her.
Roland suffered memory loss as a result of her reaction to the medication and she was continuing to be evaluated at a hospital, police said at a news conference.
“When our people were talking with her she seemed pretty confused about everything,’’ police Lt. Manuel Cruz Jr. said.
She had bumps and bruises but was otherwise unharmed when she was spotted Monday morning walking under an Interstate 610 overpass in west Houston by a passer-by who had seen media reports that she was missing. She was found near the Galleria shopping mall where she was last seen Sunday.
