Officials are looking for an Emporia State University student who failed to return from a trip to Germany.

University spokeswoman Gwen Larson says 20-year-old Emilee Irsik of Wichita 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. But Larson says Irsik didn't get on the flight.

Larson says Irsik's cell phone isn't being answered.

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