The search for missing Florida State University student Ryan Uhre from Weston, Florida, has ended in tragedy after his body was discovered by police in an abandoned building on College Avenue in downtown Tallahasse.
The 23-year-old was found just around the corner from where he was last seen on February 2; leaving Andrew’s Capital Grill and Bar on Adams Street.
“We have no suspicion of foul play at this point,” said Tallahassee Police Department Public Information Officer Dave Northway. “But we are keeping it open and active, and we will do everything we can in order to find the cause of death for Mr. Uhre.”
Northway adds that the investigation is still active, but he could not say how Uhre died, or release any information on the condition of his body or how he ended up there.
TPD says address of bldg is 111 College Ave. they believe it’s vacant but couldn’t say with 100% certainty. Some windows were boarded. Officers saw one that was open and that’s why they looked inside and then found body.
Uhre was last seen Sunday, Feb. 2, at around 8:30 pm at a Tallahassee bar where he was reportedly watching the Super Bowl with friends. He was reported missing on Feb. 7.
Uhre’s family and friends spent weeks circulating fliers and canvassing areas across South Florida.
