Dear campus community member:
We are writing to update you on our search for Yingying Zhang, a 26-year-old visiting scholar who has been missing since Friday afternoon. Our investigation is ongoing, and we are continuing to pursue a number of routes which we hope will help us find Ms. Zhang.
This morning, we released security camera footage from just after 2 p.m. Friday on North Goodwin Avenue. The video shows Ms. Zhang entering a black Saturn Astra, which then continues north on Goodwin Avenue. You can watch the video here: If you have any information about the vehicle or the encounter, please call 911 or the University of Illinois Police Department at 217-333-1216. You may also email non-emergency information to
Many people have responded to our requests for information, and we are grateful for the outpouring of support from our community for Ms. Zhang. While we cannot release many of the specifics involved in the investigation, we have enlisted all of the available resources which we believe may be useful in our search. We may not be able to immediately respond to each of you individually, but we are following up on each piece of information you send.
We have published a web page where we will post updates and information about the search: We also will continue to issue updates via social media and email when there are significant developments. We thank everyone who has offered assistance, and please continue to look out for each other's safety and well-being.
Thank you,
Jeff Christensen
