A Weston native, 23-year-old Ryan Uhre, went missing early last week in his college town of Tallahassee. Though Uhre graduated Florida State University in December of last year, he is still enrolled in classes this semester, working toward law school.
Since his disappearance on February 2, Uhre's phone has been turned off, which would explain why he was not returning any calls or texts from his family and friends. He was last seen at Andrew's Capital Grill and Bar in Tallahassee. However, on Thursday, February 6, police were able to pick up a location on Uhre's phone when it was briefly turned on in the Pompano Beach area.
According to WSVN, police received a tip that Uhre was at Rosie's Bar & Grill in Wilton Manors, though that tip has yet to lead anywhere.
Uhre's family and friends remain hopeful and continue to pass out missing-person fliers. Uhre is an active member of the Alpha Delta Phi fraternity and a psychology major at FSU. He graduated from Saint Thomas Aquinas High School before attending FSU.
"Right now, I am extremely worried about him," Ryan's father, Michael Uhre, told CBS4. WSVN quotes Michael Uhre as saying, "It's unfathomable; it's heartbreaking."
The Tallahassee Police Department is assuming the primary investigative role in the case. If you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Ryan Uhre, please call the Tallahassee Police at 850-606-5800, or Broward Crime Stoppers at 954-493-TIPS (8477).
