TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Authorities are trying to find a 23-year-old Florida State University graduate who went missing days after beginning an internship for a state lawmaker.
    
Police say Ryan Uhre disappeared on Feb. 2, after watching the Super Bowl with friends at a Tallahassee bar. He was last seen walking home, wearing a Hawaiian-style shirt with surfing Santas.
    
Family members grew concerned when they had not heard from him several days later. Tallahassee police took over the case from university police on Monday.
    
Authorities in Tallahassee and South Florida are looking for Uhre.
    
Uhre had just started an internship with State Rep. Richard Stark, a Democrat from Weston. Stark says Uhre attended orientation and worked one day in the office. Stark is friends with Uhre's parents.
