URBANA — The FBI, police and family are asking for the local public’s assistance in locating missing 26 year old Yingying Zhang out of the Urbana, Illinois area.

The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that helps authorities locate Yingying Zhang, a visiting scholar from China at the University of Illinois who went missing from the Urbana-Champaign campus.  


She was last seen near the north end of campus on June 9, 2017. Police say she was on her way to an apartment complex in Urbana around 2 pm that day to sign a lease but never showed up for the appointment.

Video shows she had taken a bus from Orchard Downs, east of the University of Illinois Arboretum, to the intersection of Springfield and Mathews Avenues, arriving at 1:52 pm. A black Saturn Astra four door hatchback approached her about four blocks from where she got off the bus near North Goodwin Avenue and West Clark Street. The video shows Yingying speaking with the driver for several moments, then getting inside the car. The vehicle then drives north on Goodwin Avenue.

The FBI has classified Yingying’s disappearance as a kidnapping investigation, and authorities have said the suspect vehicle circled the area before approaching her.

She was wearing a charcoal-gray hat with a white logo on the front, a white-and-pink flannel print long-sleeve shirt, a white undershirt, jeans, white shoes and a navy backpack when she went missing.

Yingying is described as:

• GENDER: Female.
• HAIR: Black, shoulder length.
• EYES: Brown.
• HEIGHT: 5 feet 4 inches.
• WEIGHT: 110 pounds.
• OTHER: Wears glasses.
