Sports journalist who disappeared in Houston, released from hospital

After several days in the hospital, a sports journalist who disappeared in Houston has released a statement about the incident.

Police received a missing person report on Sunday Jan. 7 after friends and family were unable to contact Courtney Roland following her disappearance. She was found safe after being spotted at a Chick-fil-A in the Galleria area on that Monday morning.

Houston police say a bad reaction to medication is to blame for the disappearance of Roland.

“In her state of confusion, I think she kind of lost track of time and her awareness and I don’t think that she was aware that she was being looked at as a missing person,” said Capt. Lentini.

In a tweet posted Jan. 15, Roland confirms that she suffered "an adverse reaction to [her] prescription medication."
