Tallahassee police say they've found the body of a missing Florida State University graduate and legislative intern.
The Tallahassee Police Department said Tuesday on its official Twitter page that it had identified a body found in a downtown building as 23-year-old Ryan Uhre.

Tallahassee police spokesman David Northway says it's too early in the investigation to know how Uhre died.

"We have no suspicion of foul play at this point, but we are keeping it open and active at this point and we are doing everything we can in order to find the cause of death for Mr. Uhre," Northway said.

Uhre disappeared on Feb. 2 after watching the Super Bowl with friends at a Tallahassee bar according to police. He was last seen walking home, wearing a Hawaiian-style shirt with surfing Santas.
Uhre graduated from FSU in December and had just started an internship in the office of Rep. Richard Stark, D-Weston.

"Ryan's friends, family and coworkers are in our thoughts and prayers at this time," Stark said Tuesday. "I have no further information or comment about this, but I encourage you to keep the family in your prayers."

Authorities say Ryan Uhre didn't take his car with him when he disappeared and there had been no activity since then on his social media or financial accounts.
