Missing Cleveland man’s sister says he has been found and is safe

UPDATE: The sister of Nathan Webb said he contacted her Sunday morning to report that he is safe.

“He said he was just trying to get away from Cleveland,” Brittany Renee Ryan said Sunday night. “I actually have him with me right now, so he is safe.”

She thanked Bluebonnet News readers for helping to spread the word about her brother’s disappearance and plans to call law enforcement Monday to cancel any searches.

No other information is known at this time.


It’s been two days since anyone has heard from Nathan Webb, 20, of Cleveland. His sister, Brittany Renee Ryan, of Houston, says Webb posted a message on Facebook on Aug. 30 that has her in fear for his safety.

The message reads: “911 help idk where in at pkeasw help me leg and head are bleeding on highway please help.”

There have been no other messages since that time, Ryan said, and she hasn’t receive a phone call from Webb or anyone connected to him to say he is safe.

Ryan has filed a missing persons report with Cleveland Police Department and is hoping the public can lead police to Webb’s whereabouts.

“If you see my brother or know where he is, please, please tell him to come home,” Ryan said.

She fears he might have been hanging out with people who could have done him harm. According to Ryan, their mother was murdered in Cleveland in 2002 and Webb is now connected to some of the people involved in the murder.

Webb is unemployed and homeless, Ryan said, and didn’t have a car or any means to travel except on foot. He was known for walking along roadways.

“I am guessing he had to be on Highway 59,” she said, trying to sort out the highway her brother referred to in his message.

Webb is described as 5-feet, 4-inches tall, with brown hair and brown eyes.

“He has a split in the middle of his tongue, like a snake tongue. He looks Gothic or like a skater boy. He wears his hat backwards most of the time. He has tattoos, a big nose, big lips, big eyes and bushy brown hair,” she said.

Eight months pregnant, Ryan said she is physically unable to look for her brother at the moment but has friends searching for him.

“I need him to come home. He’s my baby brother. I just don’t want him to end up like our mother,” she said.

Anyone with information about Webb’s whereabouts is asked to call Cleveland Police Department at 281-592-2622.
