Search continues for missing legislative intern

Tallahassee Police gave this update Wednesday on missing legislative intern Ryan Uhre:

The Tallahassee Police Department is continuing to follow all leads in the case of missing person, Ryan Uhre. While TPD has not ruled out Mr. Uhre being in the South Florida area, our investigators have been able to determine the "tip" regarding the use of a cell phone in the Pompano Beach area is false. The tip was thoroughly vetted by TPD’s investigators, who worked closely with Verizon staff members and found the information to be an anomaly. TPD has also determined the "tip" regarding Mr. Uhre being seen in the South Florida bar "Rosie’s" was in fact another person.

TPD continues to search for Mr. Uhre, following up on all leads and interviewing anyone who may have had contact with him on the night he was last seen. At this time, there is no information to suggest foul play was involved in his case. TPD is working around the clock to reunite Mr. Uhre with his family members and will not stop until he has been found.

As updates are available, they will be posted at www.talgov.com.

Urhe is a Weston native and 2013 graduate of Florida State University. He had just started an internship in the office of state Rep. Richard Stark, D-Weston, when he went missing from downtown Tallahassee on Feb. 2.

Anyone with information about Uhre's whereabouts can call 850-606-5800.
