HOUSTON (AP) — Longtime U.S. Rep. John Conyers' youngest son, who was reported missing this week, was found safe early Friday in Houston, police said.

Carl Conyers, a 21-year-old student at the University of Houston, was found unharmed at his apartment complex in the city early Friday by university police, Houston police spokesman Kese Smith said.

Carl Conyers was interviewed by Houston police investigators and is with family, Smith said. The circumstances of his disappearance are under investigation. He had been the subject of a search since Tuesday, when he was last seen by his roommate.

"Rep. Conyers has been in touch with his family and is happy his son is safe and uninjured," Shadawn Reddick-Smith, a spokeswoman for John Conyers, said in a statement.

Carl Conyers' girlfriend, Daisha Lewis, told WWJ-AM in Detroit she was supposed to meet him on campus Wednesday, but he never showed. When she and friends checked his apartment they found some clothes and other items missing.

John Conyers is a Detroit Democrat who was elected to Congress in 1964 and is its longest-serving member.
