Missing Florida State University graduate is a legislative intern

TALLAHASSEE — Ryan Uhre, 23, became an intern for a state lawmaker at the end of January.

On Feb. 2, he went missing just blocks away from the Florida Capitol.

Police don't think Uhre met with foul play. But his disappearance has sparked a statewide search, stretching from Broward County, where he grew up, to the capital city where he was last seen.

"We are canvassing the area, and interviewing his friends and acquaintances," Tallahassee police spokesman David Northway said Monday. "Our hope is to reunite Mr. Uhre with his family."

Uhre grew up in Weston and attended St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale.

He graduated from Florida State University in December, said his aunt, Christine Daiber. "He had taken his LSATs and was applying for law school," she said.

Uhre was an intern in the office of state Rep. Richard Stark, a Weston Democrat. Stark said he had done business with Uhre's father.

Uhre went missing on Super Bowl Sunday, days after the internship began. Police say Uhre spent part of the night at a Tallahassee bar, Clyde's & Costello's. His credit card also showed charges at nearby Andrew's Capital Grill and Bar.

Uhre was last seen walking home. He was wearing a white Hawaiian-style shirt with surfing Santas.

Uhre's family and friends spent the weekend combing Broward County and spreading the word.

"It's unfathomable that he just hasn't called home," Daiber said.

Anyone with information about Uhre's whereabouts can contact the Tallahassee Police Department at (850) 606-5800.
