Mother: Missing UH student, Congressman's son found safe

The missing 21-year-old UH student and son of a Michigan congressman has been found safe.

HOUSTON - A missing 21-year-old University of Houston student and son of a Michigan congressman has been found safe.

The mother of Carl Conyers has confirmed that her son is alive and safe and back with her on Friday morning.

Conyers’ mother, Monica, got the call from UH Police overnight. He was found at his apartment complex around 1 a.m.

She says her son needed a shower and hadn’t eaten. He's now resting.

Conyers is the son of U.S. Rep. John Conyers, D-Michigan.  

Conyers was reported missing after he was last seen Tuesday. His roommates were worried because his car and wallet and phone were left at the apartment. He also didn’t show up for work.

His girlfriend panicked when she received a cryptic tweet telling her to meet him at UH, but Carl never showed.


There was an all-out search for Conyers Thursday. Monica Conyers flew to Houston from Michigan Thursday afternoon to help with the search.

"This is not like him. If he was going to go somewhere and take a break, which he's never ever done, he would call me," she said. "I've heard nothing from my son. Nothing period."

Carl Conyers' roommates said the last time they saw him was Tuesday night. The added that he seemed stressed and said he had a crazy day.

"He was cooking. I greeted him. I noticed he was hiding his face a little bit," said Chat Ball, a roommate. "I didn't think much of it, just because of the fact that school can be hard on a person. Stress is very serious."

Conyers' roommates discovered he wasn't in his room Wednesday morning, but he left his phone, wallet and car behind.

Conyers' Twitter account indicates he's the president of the Black Business Association at UH and is the marketing director for the Uncommon Colors organization. He's in the class of 2018.
