Officials working to locate Emporia State student

October 29, 2012

Law-enforcement and other officials are working to locate a student who did not return from fall break.

Residential Life staff were notified last week by Emilee Irsik’s roommates that the 20-year-old Wichita student did not return from fall break, which was Oct. 18 and 19. At that point, staff initiated the university’s missing student protocol, which included contacting Emporia State Police and Safety.

“We want to make sure that Emilee is fine,” said Lynn Hobson, associate vice-president of student affairs, who oversees Residential Life. “Our hopes and prayers are with Emilee’s family and her friends as they deal with the uncertainties right now.”

Irsik’s family and friends have created a Facebook group to help locate the student — https://www.facebook.com/groups/emileeirsik/?ref=ts&fref=ts.
