Before noon today, Houston Police tweeted, “After seeing Ms. Roland’s case in the news this morning, a passerby called us about 8:15 a.m., stating Ms. Roland was under an overpass at 610 West Loop at Richmond. Our officers arrived, confirmed it was her and arranged she be checked at an area hospital.”

It is a miracle someone recognized Roland and she was found today after overnight rain storms in Houston. In an off-camera interview this afternoon, a Chick-Fil-A manager said Ms. Roland came into the Chick-fil-A at Richmond and the 610 West Loop around 7:30 a.m.  Morning shift employees said Roland did not look like her photos. According to local news reports, Houston Police say Roland told them she had a bad reaction to medication, causing her to be disoriented.
