A University of Houston student and son of a member of the U.S. House of Representatives who went missing Tuesday has been found, according to multiple reports.

Carl Conyers was found safe about 2:20 a.m. Friday and released to his family, KRTK-TV reported. He is the youngest son of John Conyers, U.S. Representative for Michigan.

Carl Conyers, 21, had been last seen on Tuesday, and his family pleaded for his safe return publicly on Thursday as law enforcement searched, KRTK reported. Though details were limited Friday morning, police told KRTK that Carl Conyers liked a tweet sometime during the search and it helped lead police to him.

KHOU-TV reported that Carl’s mother, Monica Conyers, said that Carl needed a shower and hadn’t eaten when he was found.
