Authorities have reported that Michigan Congressman John Conyers’ youngest son, Carl Conyers is missing in Texas. 21-year old Carl Conyers is a student at the University of Houston. Cops say that the last person to see Conyers was his roommate, on Tuesday afternoon. Conyers’ girlfriend said that they did receive a Twitter message from Carl, Wednesday morning, but they never did see him.
According to WWJ, Daisha Lewis said, “He asked all his friends to come meet him on campus. 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.”
Conyers is 145 pounds and 6-foot tall, with black hair. It is believed that he no longer has a beard. Lewis continued, “Everyone that knows Carl, knows that he’s an amazing person. Everyone cares about him a lot. He’s a real friendly and nice person. I mean, he tells me everything. I saw him every day. We would talk and text all day, so this is surprising to me and surprising to everyone around him.” Lewis said that Conyers didn’t leave in a car or on a bike.
Conyers’ father, Congressman John Conyers has been a Congress member since 1965. At the age of 87, John Conyers is currently the longest-serving member. Last week, he was elected for his 27th consecutive term in Congress. He has another son, who is also named John. He is a retired Army National Guard that also fought in the Korean War.
