As the search continues for missing Florida State University graduate Ryan Uhre, FSU Police handed the investigation over to Tallahassee Police Monday. That means more resources will be available to try and help find the 23-year-old.
"It's difficult but we remain positive. We're praying,” said his father, Michael Uhre.
Ryan Uhre was last seen Super Bowl Sunday at a bar in Tallahassee. Feb. 2 was also the last time Uhre, who is from Weston, spoke to his family or responded to any texts or phone calls. Uhre, who graduated from FSU in December, went to high school at St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Broward.
"We're just still baffled why in one week we haven’t heard a word from him,” Michael Uhre said.
The best lead so far in the case came on Thursday. Verizon pinged Ryan Uhre’s cell phone near Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach. While investigators look into that, Michael Uhre says he won’t stop looking for his son anytime soon.
He was preparing to go to law school and was interning for Weston State Rep. Richard Stark.
"I share the concerns of family and friends over the disappearance of legislative intern Ryan Uhre, who was recently assigned to work in my Tallahassee legislative office,” Stark said in a statement. The representative said Michael Uhre is a client of his insurance business.
“In the few days that Ryan has worked with us, he demonstrated exemplary knowledge and performance in all of his tasks,” Stark said.
