Dallas police found Thomas Johnson after he was reported missing.

After going missing on Monday, 18-year old college freshman and football player at Texas A&M, Thomas Johnson was found by police in Dallas unharmed on Thursday.

No details surrounding what the reasons for Johnson going missing were released, but a police department spokesperson told ESPN.com Thursday morning that further information was forthcoming.

The wide receiver’s mother, Linda Hanks said that police called her Thursday morning to tell her, her son was found and was o.k., after last being seen leaving his College Station residence around 5pm on Monday.

Hanks told WFAA-TV she had traveled the 180 miles from Dallas to College Station as authorities searched for her son who ended up being back in Dallas.

Friends Lose Contact With Johnson

Hanks said she had visited Johnson last week at the college and then received a text that he had missed his classes and football practice on Monday. She says that since disappearing, she has not had any contact with her son and no other information surrounding his disappearance to share.

“We are pleased and relieved to find T.J.,” Aggies coach Kevin Sumlin said in a statement. “Our foremost concern is for the health and well-being of T.J. I would like to thank everyone for their thoughts, prayers and efforts in locating him.”

Johnson, a true freshman receiver out of Dallas Skyline High School, has appeared in 10 games this season, and has 30 catches for 339 yards and a touchdown.

Texas A&M’s designation as a land, sea, and space grant institution reflects a broad range of research with ongoing projects funded by agencies such as the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, and the Office of Naval Research. The school ranks in the top 20 American research institutes in terms of funding and has made notable contributions to such fields as animal cloning and petroleum engineering.
