Carl Conyers, the youngest son of Detroit Congressman John Conyers, has been reported missing in Texas. He was reportedly last seen on Tuesday afternoon.

According to CBS News Detroit, the circumstances of his disappearance are confusing and concerning.

Daisha Lewis, Conyers’ girlfriend, said she and several other friends received a message from Conyers’ Twitter account Wednesday morning and they momentarily thought he might have been located — but that didn’t turn out the be the case.

“Right now, we still don’t know where he is. He may have come back to his room around 11:30 yesterday, in the morning, but as far as we know, no one has seen him since then,” Lewis told WWJ’s Scott Ryan. “He might have come back to take more stuff out of his room, but we’re not sure if it was him that took stuff out of his room or someone else that made him or someone that did it for him.

“He was able to message me on social media, on Twitter, and he asked me to meet him. He asked all his friends to come meet him on campus,” Lewis continued. “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.”

And this, too.

“He didn’t take a car with him or a bike so we don’t really know how he’s getting around right now. Like, he left his car keys, he left everything. We don’t know where he could be,” she said. “He left his phone and his laptop at his apartment, so I went through his laptop and I looked for emails or any history of an airplane ticket or a bus ticket somewhere, but there was nothing.”

We will update this with any more news of his whereabouts as it's known.
