A missing Emporia State University student has been found safe in Germany, according to her family.

An Emporia State news release said Emilee Irsik, from Wichita, is with authorities in Germany.

University spokeswoman Gwen Larson says Irsik, 20, didn't tell family or friends about the trip before departing Oct. 19 during the school's fall break. She landed the next day in Hamburg.

Her roommates notified the school when Irsik didn't show up for classes Oct. 22, the Monday after the four-day weekend ended. University police worked with airport and airline officials to determine her travel arrangements, including that she had booked a return trip Friday.

Irsik is studying German and was interested in studying abroad, but her trip wasn't school sanctioned.
