Missing University of Missouri Student Last Seen in Nashville

The Metro Nashville Police Department is actively searching for 22-year-old Riley Strain, a University of Missouri student who went missing during his visit to Nashville over the weekend. The disappearance has raised concerns among friends, family, and the local community.

Unfortunate Disappearance

According to the police, Strain was last seen by his friends on Friday night at a popular Broadway bar. The exact details of his disappearance remain unclear, and the local authorities are working diligently to gather more information.

Known Details

Described as 6’5″ tall with a thin build, Strain has striking blue eyes and light brown hair. The University of Missouri released a statement on Monday confirming that Strain had traveled to Nashville to attend a private event.

Last Known Whereabouts

On Friday night, Strain was out with a group of fellow Delta Chi fraternity brothers when an unfortunate incident led to his removal from Luke Bryan’s bar. According to his companions, they lost sight of Strain afterward and their attempts to locate him using Snapchat’s location feature proved unsuccessful. Calls to Strain’s phone went directly to voicemail, and upon returning to their hotel, located on Rosa L. Parks Boulevard, Strain was nowhere to be found.

Intensive Search Efforts

The Nashville police, alongside other relevant authorities, have conducted extensive searches in the area, including the riverbank, using helicopters, drones, and ground teams. Unfortunately, these efforts have not yet yielded any positive results. Additionally, the Office of Emergency Management has launched a boat on the Cumberland River to cover more ground in the search.

University of Missouri’s Involvement

The University of Missouri has been actively engaged in supporting Strain’s family and cooperating with local law enforcement throughout the search. Angela King Taylor, interim vice chancellor for Student Affairs, emphasized the top priority of ensuring the safety of the university’s community in a released statement. The university is ready to provide necessary support and assistance to the family and encourages anyone in need to avail themselves of the counseling resources available.
