sorry i did by accident.
Brent Zwerneman says last time Johnson was seen or heard from was 5pm Monday. He was supposedly leaving for practice which started at 5:15.

No worries. You made a mistake he stepped on his $&!&
Henry, don't let one jerk drag you into that. Prayers for TJ and family.
The Zwerneman tweet didn't say he was on his way to practice. Just that he was seen leaving his house at 5 and also that practice started at 515. Sounds like he was not planning on attending practice. Other sites are saying he has a "history" of things like this and there is a tweet from someone who might be his girlfriend who tweeted Rashaad Samples "Thomas good".
Obviously hope for the best but this could just be a case of a kid going off the reservation for any number of reasons.
The tweet from the gf wasn't based on anything factual. She was just hoping that Johnson was ok. No one has heard from him, which is why the CS PD has started a manhunt for the kid.
If the gf had actually talked to him then this story wouldn't be as big as it's getting.
You shouldn't say that... This isn't Shaggy.
The gf is a blithering idiot, then.
the areas to the east, west and south of Fair Park have the highest crime rates in Dallas. Lincoln and Madison are in that immediate area. This area between I-30 and the Trinity River is what is called South Dallas. When you hear Oak Cliff, that's on the other side of the Trinity along the I-35E corridor. Pleasant Grove is south I-30 in east Dallas. That's where Skyline is located. Not Southlake, but not South Dallas by any means. South Dallas is as rough as any hood in the country.
Actually, it's hard to tell. According to this article which was updated recently...
... "the university said this does not appear to be a case involving foul play"
He's missing/no one knows where he is but that doesn't mean he hasn't contacted his girlfriend. Not saying that's what happened but how could the university basically rule out foul play if no one has heard from him?

You're not missing much. Pretty much all of Dallas sucks.
TJ was always a fun kid to cover. Always joking and gave some great quotes, much like former teammate Peter Jinkens. I hope he's ok and just had to get away for a little bit or something simple. Thoughts and prayers to his family (and him).
I can't image what his parents are going through.

That's odd. How can the university say it does not appear to be foul play unless they have some idea of what's going on?
I was thinking the same thing. I am surprised Sumlin has not come out with a statement other than tweeting big news about a new comittment.
Can you be a bigger fuckhead?
Disciplina praesidium civitatis
They say his phone is dead and his car is still parked on campus. Really weird!
"Texas A&M freshman receiver Thomas Johnson is missing, according to the University Police Department. Johnson, a true freshman receiver out of Dallas Skyline High School, was last seen leaving his residence in College Station at approximately 6 p.m. ET Monday, according to the UPD."
"I'm asking anyone... anyone... to just provide any piece of information," his mother, Linda Hanks, said through tears Wednesday night outside her South Dallas home, WFAA.com reported."
"If I could transfer some of the faith I have in God to Thomas -- to let him know how much I love him, and others are so supportive of him and love him, too," Hanks said, according to WFAA.com. "I'm asking God to do that right now, to touch him in a special way."
"Thomas has been building over the years a relationship with Christ. It's really gotten strong in the last couple of months. So, I know God is in this. And if he's in it, it's going to be OK. But that doesn't stop me from crying, and it doesn't stop me from wondering, and it doesn't help me sleep."
"Texas A&M freshman defensive back De'Vante Harris also posted on his Twitter account Wednesday night: "Everybody help please find my cousin Thomas. If y'all find out anything, please call (police)."
"Anyone with information on Johnson's whereabouts should contact UPD at (979) 845-2345. The police department said he was last seen wearing a black jacket, black shorts and grey shoes, and that he might have traveled to the Dallas area."
Just saw his mom on sportscenter, man I hope they find him. My prayers go out to them
That's good...im happy for his mom...now hes got some explaining to do
Wonder if the FBI ever got involved.
