It is not yet known exactly where Roland was when she was found or if she was alone.
Flat mate Autumn Vara already said Roland messaged her Saturday night about a suspicious man she saw at Walgreens who took after her home.
She wasn't aware that she had been reported as missing and her state of confusion caused her to lose track of time, police said.
Another post, made by a friend of hers, she was anxious "that she was being followed by a blue truck leaving Walgreens".
Houston police got a tip from a passeryby who spotted Roland under a bridge before 8:15 a.m. nearby time Monday.
