University of Missouri Student Riley Strain, 22, Reported Missing During Nashville Fraternity Trip

Riley Strain, a 22-year-old student from the University of Missouri, has gone missing after an incident at Luke Bryan’s bar in Nashville. He was last seen by his friends at a bar on Broadway on Friday night, as confirmed by the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department.

Riley was in Nashville to attend his fraternity’s spring formal when he disappeared. His last communication was with his fraternity brothers, informing them that he was returning to their hotel. Worried about his safety, Riley’s family, including his stepfather Christopher Whiteid and mother Michelle Whiteid, traveled all the way from Springfield, Missouri, to Nashville to help with the search.

Described as 6 feet 5 inches tall, with a thin build, blue eyes, and light brown hair, Riley’s disappearance has sparked concerns among his loved ones and the authorities. The University of Missouri has been actively involved, offering support and counseling resources to Riley’s family and cooperating with Nashville authorities.

The disappearance of Riley Strain was reported on Saturday, triggering efforts to locate him. Despite attempts by his friends to reach out to him via Snapchat and phone calls, no success was found. Police tried to track his phone but were unable to do so. Surveillance footage suggested that Riley might have taken a wrong turn while returning to the hotel.

Intensive searches have been conducted, including the use of helicopters, but Riley remains missing. The Delta Chi fraternity, the University of Missouri, and authorities have appealed to the public for any information that could help locate him. Riley’s family has expressed deep distress and concern for his well-being.

The Metropolitan Nashville Police Department released video footage showing Riley wearing a two-tone shirt, crossing 1st Avenue North to Gay Street at around 9:45 pm on Friday. Investigators have requested assistance from the public in locating him. Despite thorough searches of the downtown area and the riverbank where Riley was last seen, no significant leads have emerged.

As the search continues, the community remains hopeful for Riley’s safe return, and efforts to find him persist with unwavering determination. Anyone with information on Riley’s whereabouts is urged to call Metropolitan Nashville Police at (615)-862-8600.
