Dear campus community member,

We are asking for your help in our search for a fellow member of our campus community who is missing. Yingying Zhang is a 26-year-old visiting scholar from Urbana, and her friends and family have not heard from her since Friday afternoon. Attempts to contact her by phone and at her residence have been unsuccessful.

We do not know whether Ms. Zhang is in danger, but the University of Illinois Police Department is doing everything it can to work toward her safe return. If anyone has information about where Ms. Zhang might be, please let us know. Even small pieces of information may help tremendously.
