The youngest son of longtime Michigan Rep. John Conyers was found early Friday after disappearing from his Texas college for nearly three days, authorities say.
Carl Conyers, a 21-year-old student at the University of Houston, was last seen Tuesday afternoon by his roommate, cops said.
Investigators were able to track Conyers down from a tweet he “liked” in the pre-dawn hours. It was not immediately clear where Conyers had been or why he’d gone missing.
A mystery in Houston has the longest-running politician in the House of Representatives and his family very worried. Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) is hoping for answers in the disappearance of his 21-year-old son, Carl.
The FBI has joined Texas authorities investigating the disappearance of Carl Conyers, the son of Rep. John Conyers Jr., D-Michigan, who has been missing since he left his Houston home earlier this week, relatives and investigators told NBC News on Thursday.
Conyers, 21, a sophomore at the University of Houston, was last seen Tuesday afternoon by the roommate with whom he shared an apartment, Houston police said. Police said he’d shaved off his beard shortly before he went missing.
Daisha Lewis, Conyers’ girlfriend, told NBC News that she found a packed bag in Conyers’ room, along with his wallet and phone, when she went to see him Tuesday night, but Conyers wasn’t there.
Lewis said she got a message from Conyers on Wednesday asking her to meet him, but he didn’t show up. When she went back to his home later in the day, Conyers’ clothes and wallet were missing, Lewis said.
The Houston office of the FBI confirmed to NBC News on Thursday that it is assisting Houston police, who described Conyers as 6 feet tall, weighing 145 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair.
John Conyers, Jr.
Shadawn Reddick-Smith, a spokeswoman for John Conyers Jr., the longest-serving member of the U.S. House, told NBC News that the family learned of Carl Conyers’ disappearance on Wednesday.
The congressman and his family “ask for privacy as they work through this situation of uncertainty and ask that anyone with knowledge of their son’s whereabouts contact the Houston Police Department immediately,” she said.
If you’ve seen Conyers or know his whereabouts, contact Houston Police at 713-884-3131 or the Houston Police Missing Persons Division at 832-394-1840.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
