HOUSTON, TX—Carl Conyers, the youngest son of U.S. Representative of Michigan’s 13 congressional district, John Conyers, has been reported missing since Wednesday, November 16. Houston police have teamed up with the FBI, Secret Service, and private search company, EquuSearch to locate the 21-year old sophomore at the University of Houston.
Carl, who is described as being 6 foot and 1 inches tall, weighing 145 pounds, with black hair, was last seen by one of his roommates at his apartment in the 3700 block of Southmore Blvd. in Houston. His girlfriend, Daisha Lewis, told police that she was supposed to meet him on campus Wednesday, but he never showed up. She said when she arrived at his room some clothes and his debit card and more clothing were missing. Lewis says that he did not take a car or bike with him.
Lewis tweeted, “Carl is officially missing. If anyone has seen him or knows where he could be contact me at 7139276535. I love him and just want him safe.”
On Thursday, November 17, FBI and EquuSearch took to the streets to pass out missing persons flyers of Carl Conyers. The picture shows Conyers with a beard, but according to reports investigators believe Conyers shaved his beard before the incident. According to Click2Houston.com, Conyer’s friend, Corey Gentry, described Conyers shaving his beard as “unusual behavior.”
His family became aware of his disappearance on Wednesday. Congressman John Conyers lives in Washington D.C. while his wife lives in Texas.
A spokeswoman for the House said: “Yesterday, Rep. John Conyers, Jr. and his wife Monica Conyers learned of the disappearance of their son, Carl Conyers, who is a student at the University of Houston. Rep. Conyers and his family ask for privacy as they work through this situation of uncertainty and ask that anyone with knowledge of their son’s whereabouts, contact the Houston Police Department immediately.”
