Carl Conyers, the youngest son of Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), was found safe on Friday, three days after disappearing.
The 21-year-old sophomore at Houston University was found at around 2:15 a.m., in his apartment, but it is not clear where he had been since he was reported missing on Tuesday afternoon.

Conyers’ girlfriend, Daisha Lewis, told CBS Radio station WWJ in Detroit that she went to see him Tuesday night and found a packed bag, his wallet, and a phone in his apartment, but not him. The two were supposed to meet on campus the next day, but Conyers never showed up. He was last seen by his roommate, Chet Ball, who suggested that Conyers might have been overwhelmed by his school work.
“School can be hard on a person,” Ball told reporters. “Stress is very serious.”
Texas authorities worked with both the FBI and the Secret Service to locate Conyers.
The young man’s father is the longest-serving member of the House and was re-elected to his 27th term last week.
“I’m very worried,” the congressman told The Detroit News before his son was found. “It’s very unlike him. He’s a very stable young guy.”
