Thomas Johnson: Police Cancel Press Conference on Found Texas A&M Player

Alex Kay@AlexPKayCorrespondent INovember 15, 2012

Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson has been found after a nearly four-day long saga.

The freshman went missing from the College Station campus on Monday night, and reportedly turned up in Dallas on Thursday morning, according to an Associated Press report (via the Los Angeles Times)

There are still numerous unanswered questions about the disappearance, but we do know that his mother, Linda Hanks, was informed by university police that her son is safe and unharmed. There is no foul play suspected, according to WFAA.com

The Texas A&M university police were initially planning on holding a press conference to disclose further information on Thursday morning, but recent reports indicate that will no longer be the case.

According to AggieSports.com’s Twitter feed, Jason Cook—a university spokesman—announced that there would not be a news conference to discuss the disappearance of Johnson.

There is no press conference scheduled at this time regarding Thomas Johnson, per A&M spokesman Jason Cook.

This contradicts Bryan Mays’ earlier report that the TAMU Police would be holding a presser at 8 a.m. local time to brief reporters on the case.

@tamu Police will hold a press conference at 8 this morning to discuss A&M FB player Thomas Johnson who has been found safe.

Johnson, an 18-year-old from Dallas, has appeared in 10 games this season and recorded 30 receptions for 339 yards and a TD. He helped the No. 8 ranked Aggies upset the then-undefeated and No. 1 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide on Nov. 10, just two days before his disappearance.

It’s currently unknown if more details will leak on Johnson’s missing persons scare, and there hasn’t been any word on whether or not a rescheduled press conference might take place.

We will keep you updated right here on B/R with news and updates on Johnson’s safe return and details of his disappearance as they break.
