UPDATE: Police Investigate Missing Person Case

Update: February 24, 2014
The Tallahassee Police Department is releasing the preliminary results of the autopsy for Ryan Uhre. After consulting with the Leon County Medical Examiner, Mr. Uhre’s death appears to be accidental as it appears he died as a result of a fall from the second story of the building his body was discovered.
The building did not have a second floor, and it appears Mr. Uhre fell through the window on the second story and died from injuries he sustained after falling to the ground floor. At this time, it is believed Mr. Uhre was alone when this terrible accident occurred but the final report will not be complete until all data is reviewed, including toxicology reports.

The Criminal Investigations Unit is asking anyone who may recognize the male in the picture below to please call them at (850) 606-5800. The pictured male was believed to have been in the area the night Ryan Uhre was last seen but is NOT considered a suspect in the case, rather a pedestrian who happened to be walking in the area of downtown Tallahassee at the time Mr. Uhre would have been leaving the restaurant.
In an effort to find Mr. Uhre, TPD investigators are hoping this man may have seen Mr. Uhre as he left Andrews Restaurant and may be able to assist with the investigation of Mr. Uhre's disappearance. TPD continues to review all relevant leads into this case and asks anyone who may information about it to please call (850) 606-5800 or CrimeStoppers at (850) 574-TIPS.

Today TPD partnered with "Scent Evidence" to use a K-9 dog to conduct an article search in the downtown area of Tallahassee to attempt to locate any of Mr. Uhre's belongings. As TPD continues its investigation into the missing person case, TPD has also partnered with the Leon County Sheriff's Office, who will utilize their helicopter to fly over the downtown area of Tallahassee in order to locate any evidence from a different angle.
TPD is asking any member of the community with information about Mr. Uhre's whereabouts to call (850) 606-5800 or if they wish to remain anonymous, to please use CrimeStopper's at (850) 574-TIPS.
Update: February 12, 2014
The Tallahassee Police Department is continuing to follow all leads in 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.
Florida State University Police Department (FSUPD) and Tallahassee Police Department (TPD) investigators met this morning to discuss progress and plans concerning the ongoing investigation in the Ryan Uhre missing person case. In the meeting it was decided that as the last known location of Uhre was off campus, and because TPD has been highly engaged in the case along with campus police, the Tallahassee Police Department should assume the primary investigative role with FSUPD continuing to assist in a support role. FSUPD will continue to actively assist TPD, but primary media queries should be directed to the TPD Public Information Officer. Both FSUPD and TPD, along with law enforcement agencies around the state will receive citizen tips and forward them to case investigators. Law enforcement continues to encourage the public to be on the lookout for Ryan Uhre and to forward any tips and information immediately to law enforcement.
Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Mr. Uhre is asked to call (850) 606-5800 24 hours a day. Citizens may also choose to call CrimeStoppers at (850) 574-TIPS to remain anonymous.
