Police Search for Missing FSU Graduate Ryan Uhre

Ryan Uhre was last seen Sunday, Feb. 2

Family and friends continued searching Sunday for Ryan Uhre, a Florida State University graduate who hasn't been seen in nearly a week.

Police are now saying the 23-year-old could be in South Florida.

Phone records show his phone was turned on Thursday around lunch time and turned right back off again in the Pompano Beach area, police said. Witnesses have also told police he was spotted at Rosie's Bar & Grill in Wilton Manors.

"The social network community just reached out and they believe he was there," said father Michael Uhre.

Ryan Uhre was last seen on Sunday, Feb. 2 in leaving Clyde's & Costello's on Adams Street in Tallahassee alone. Friends reported him missing when he didn't come home.

Further investigation showed he made a purchase at Andrews Capital Grill and Bar a few minutes later, police said. An employee there told police Ryan Uhre returned around 9:10 p.m. to buy more food, but the kitchen had closed.

He was last seen leaving Andrew's, walking west on the south side of the building toward Kleman Plaza, according to authorities.

Police said there wasn't any indication that foul play was involved, but his friends and family said it's unusual for him to go so long without contact.

"I'm hurt right now. I'm about to have knee surgery and I'm walking around trying to help find him and that's all I can do, just putting up flyers, trying to help find him," his friend Mark Weiss said.

His loved ones are hoping the flyers, along with media attention will help them locate Ryan Uhre.

"You know his face is all over the TV in South Florida and it's really hard to believe that no one, no one has seen him anywhere," Michael Uhre said.

The FSU alum graduated in December and moved into his own apartment, said his father. He was taking a course while preparing for the LSAT and had just gotten an internship at the state capitol.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the FSU Police Department at 850-644-1234 or anonymously at Crime Stoppers at 850-574-TIPS (8477). Information that leads to finding Uhre may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
