Missing Emporia State Student Takes Secret Trip to Germany, Doesn’t Return Home
EMPORIA, Kan. — The family of Emporia State student Emilee Irsik is waiting for news about their missing daughter.
Irsik disappeared 11 days ago while traveling to Germany, a trip her family had no idea she was on until they discovered she was missing and checked her smart-phone records. Irsik’s family first learned of her disappearance from Emporia State staff, stating she hadn’t returned from break.
Irsik is a German major. Her family said she spoke of plans to study abroad in the future, but she never said anything about going to Germany in October. Her return ticket was made for last Friday.
Irsik’s family is notifying everyone they can think of in an attempt to track her down. They’ve called hospitals, hostels and universities in Germany.
Friends of the family set up a Facebook page to spread the word of Irsik’s disappearance.
