The Texas A&M University Police Department confirms a student-athlete who had been missing since Monday has been found safe. 

University police confirm Thomas Linze Johnson, a graduate of Dallas' Skyline High School and a freshman wide receiver on the Aggie football team, was found in Dallas at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday.

University officials had traveled to Dallas Wednesday to search for Johnson and found him with the help of the Dallas Police Department and the Texas Rangers.

Authorities have not released any further details regarding exactly where Johnson was found or where he was for the last few days.  It was believed that Johnson may have visited family in North Texas, but no one was at his mother's home Wednesday night.

University police said Thursday that no further details will be released.

Johnson was reported missing Wednesday after he was last spotted leaving his College Station residence at approximately 5 p.m. Monday.  He has family in the Dallas-area and it was believed he may have been in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Neighbors are glad the teen is OK, but are frustrated by the disappearance and the fear it caused.

“It scared me to death.  He’s been a good kid,” said neighbor Anthony Billard. “I was relieved.  I was so glad that he was found, because so many things are happening now."

Billard said maybe the teen needed to blow off some steam after the Aggies big weekend where they upset Alabama. Still his parents, police and everyone who’s been worried about him, have questions.

“I believe sometimes they really need to just get away,” said Billard. "Why didn’t you let someone know where you were?  We’re all family members, everyone looks out for everyone.  That’s my question.  I’m just glad he’s safe.”

Police aren’t saying if Johnson is in any kind of trouble over what became a massive, multi-agency search.

School officials have not said if Johnson is expected to play in A&M's game this Saturday against Sam Houston State.  So far this season for the Aggies, Johnson has appeared in 10 games and has 30 catches for 399 yards with one touchdown.
