She was last seen on surveillance camera on Friday, June 9, getting into a auto at the corner of West Clark Street and North Goodwin Avenue around 2 pm.

The University and Champaign County Crime Stoppers will announce Monday evening a $40,000 reward for those with information leading to the arrest of the person, or persons, involved with Yingying Zhang's apparent kidnapping. The reward money came at the request of Zhang's family and was raised from community donations via a humanitarian-assistance account and GoFundMe page set up by the U of I Community Credit Union.

UIPD released video footage of Zhang entering a black Saturn Astra on Goodwin Urbana.

According to the Xinhua news agency, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has offered a second reward of 10,000 dollars for any information about the location or whereabouts of Zhang. The driver, a white male suspect, circled the block before stopping to speak to Zhang. Friends say she was on the way to sign a lease for a new apartment, but told the building manager that she was running late. University officials say Zhang's visiting scholar appointment runs through April 2018.
