The youngest son of longtime Michigan Congressman John Conyers has gone missing in Texas, authorities say.
Carl Conyers, a 21-year-old student at the University of Houston, was last seen Tuesday afternoon by his roommate, cops said.
The missing student’s girlfriend told WWJ that she and others received a message on Twitter from Carl on Wednesday morning, but he did not surface.
“He asked all his friends to come meet him on campus,” Daisha Lewis told WWJ. “When we got there — I didn’t feel right about it or thought maybe he was lying or someone was making him lie to meet us there because when we got there, he wasn’t there. When we got back to the apartment, his stuff was gone. He took his ID with him and a debit card and some clothes even. Like it was a distraction to get more stuff that he left behind.”
The younger Conyers is 6-foot tall and 145 pounds with black hair. He no longer has a beard that can be seen in a photo released by authorities.
Rep. John Conyers has been a member of Congress since 1965.
“Everyone that knows Carl knows that he’s an amazing person,” Lewis told WWJ. “Everyone cares about him a lot. He’s a real friendly and nice person. I mean, he tells me everything. I saw him everyday. We would talk and text all day so this is surprising to me and surprising to everyone around him.”
Lewis told the station that Conyers didn’t take a car or bike with him.
John Conyers, 87, has been a member of Congress since 1965. He is the longest-serving current member and was elected to his 27th consecutive term last week.
