WASHINGTON, D.C. — A JMU senior and sorority member was found safe Sunday morning after her family reported her missing Saturday, when she was unreachable after traveling to Texas for the championship game.

Ally Carroll, 21, attended the Jan. 7 game in Frisco, Texas with friends but disappeared when fans rushed the field after JMU’s big win. Carroll’s brother said that after several hours, her friends had found no sign of her and her phone was either dead or broken.

Her family, friends, classmates and sorority sisters immediately sprang into action, flooding social media with photos of her and pleas for information on her location.

The JMU school newspaper, The Breeze, reported that Carroll had left the British Lion Pub in Frisco with a man in his forties an hour after the game, but no one working at the pub could identify her due to a shift change at 5 p.m.

On Sunday morning, the Frisco Police Department as well as Carroll’s family members and friends confirmed that she had been found safe and was on her way home.
