Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson, who had been reported missing since he was last seen leaving his apartment in College Station on Monday, has been found safe.

From the Associated Press:

Texas A&M freshman wide receiver Thomas Johnson has been found safe in Dallas after he disappeared from campus three days ago.

Johnson’s mother, Linda Hanks, says Texas A&M University police told her Thursday the 18-year-old is unharmed.

University police said they traveled to Dallas to look for Johnson on Wednesday. Johnson was found safe about 2:30 a.m. Thursday with the help of the Dallas police and the Texas Rangers.

Police said Wednesday that Johnson was last seen leaving his College Station residence around 5 p.m. Monday.

Hanks told WFAA-TV she traveled from Dallas to College Station while authorities searched for her son. He turned up 180 miles away in Dallas.

Hanks says Johnson didn’t contact her and that she has no other information. Campus police said that they are not releasing further details.

Coach Kevin Sumlin says he’s relieved Johnson has been found and is concerned for Johnson’s health and well-being.

Johnson played in 10 games this season, with 30 catches for 339 yards and a touchdown.

Bama fans typically don’t kidnap opposin players after losing a game. They just beat their wives.

Glad to see the nuts have fallen from their trees. Disgusting to see your comments with a young man missing. Glad to hear he was found safe. Neither of you represent the Alabama, Auburn, or Georgia fan bases.

Lance- don’t sell yourself short. It hasn’t been proven that you did anything wrong. In fact, you’ve been very accomodating in coming in for tests. The fact that you say “enough is enough” does not admit guilt. If it is proven later on that you cheated then fine but as of now there is absolutely no evidence that you cheated. This is not a “glove didn’t fit” defense. Nothing I have read mentions any evidence whatsoever that you cheated…other than unwillingness to continue to cooperate.

Why does everyone assume that Alabama kidnapped him. Yes, it was the day after we lost to them. Have any of you thought just maybe it was a coincidence. NO, because Alabama goes to Championship games every year and people cant let it go. Its time to grow up and stop accusing the innocent for things. Because sometimes things aren’t always what they seem.
