Intern For Florida State Lawmaker Has Been Missing For A Week

An intern working for a Florida state lawmaker has been missing since Feb. 2, according to The Miami Herald.

Ryan Uhre, 23, went missing on Super Bowl Sunday. He spent part of the night at two separate bars in Tallahassee, Fla., and was last seen walking home. Police do not suspect foul play, according to the Herald. A statewide search has been organized.

“We are canvassing the area, and interviewing his friends and acquaintances,” Tallahassee Police spokesman Officer David Northway told The Herald on Monday. “Our hope is to reunite Mr. Uhre with his family.”

Uhre in January became an intern in the office of state Rep. Richard Stark (D).
