Missing Emporia State University student found in Germany

EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) - A missing Kansas college student has been found in Germany nearly three weeks after traveling there without telling her friends or family.

Twenty-year-old Emilee Irsik, a junior at Emporia State University, was with German authorities when she called her family around noon Thursday. Her mother, Sherry Irsik, of La Grange, N.C., told The Associated Press she is "thrilled beyond measure" and looking forward to being reunited with her daughter.

But she said she didn't speak long with her daughter and had "zero information" about what happened.
