A missing persons investigation appears to be solved. Lubbock police began searching for 25-year-old Robert Justin Hightower on Sunday. That's when three men left a home in the 4900 of 42nd street and took Hightower with them. A witness told police they had been in a fight just before that. Lubbock police became even more suspicious when they found an SUV belonging to Hightower's brother in an alley in the 3500 block of 45th street. It had been set on fire.
Now, it appears Hightower is safe. Lubbock police say he made contact with is father Thursday afternoon. An investigation is ongoing.
