|The family of a Chinese student presumed kidnapped in Illinois have asked US President Donald Trump to provide additional resources to help find her.
Zhang Yingying Authentic Alex Pietrangelo Jersey , a 26-year-old visiting scholar at the University of Illinois from southeast China, disappeared on June 9. Police believe Zhang is dead, although no body has been found.
Brendt Christensen, a former master’s student at the university, has been charged with her abduction. Christensen Authentic Paul Stastny Jersey , 28, pleaded not guilty to kidnapping last month and is due to stand trial in September.
Zhang Yingying’s father, Zhang Ronggao, cited the US president’s own role as a father in a letter he sent to Trump earlier this month. It was read out by Zhang’s boyfriend Hou Xiaolin at a news conference on Tuesday.
“As a loving father to your own children, you can understand what we are going through Authentic Dmitrij Jaskin Jersey ,” the letter said. “We fervently request that you direct all available federal law enforcement and investigatory resources be used to find our daughter as soon as possible.”
Hou also told reporters at the news conference in Champaign, Illinois, that he and the family would not be returning to China until Zhang is found.
An online fundraising platform has collected more than US$137,000 to support the family’s stay in the United States.
Hou expressed his frustration at the pace of the search. With the missing woman’s parents standing nearby during the news conference, Hou said her family and friends “feel helpless” because they don’t know when their ordeal will end.
“Yingying is a kind Authentic Alexander Steen Jersey , optimistic, diligent and brave girl,” Hou said. “She would not give up on anything or anybody as long as there was a glimmer of hope. So we will never give up on her, either.”
Hou said investigators shared “good news” about the evidence they’ve collected, but no details and no breakthrough yet on where Zhang might be.
Hou said Zhang’s father walks to his daughter’s old apartment and stays there for hours.
“I never asked him why. But I think this is the only way he has now to cure his wound Authentic Brayden Schenn Jersey ,” Hou said.
Zhang disappeared just weeks after arriving at the Urbana-Champaign campus in central Illinois where she was doing research in agricultural sciences. She was expected to begin work on her doctorate in the fall.
Christensen is accused of kidnapping Zhang in Urbana, 225 kilometers southwest of Chicago.
Investigators said Zhang was abducted after she left campus to sign an apartment lease. They believe Christensen lured her into his car.
Christensen, who earned a master’s degree in physics from the university this year, was placed under surveillance by federal agents who heard him talking about how he had kidnapped Zhang, court records said. He faces a life sentence if convicted.
Christensen’s attorney Anthony Bruno told reporters the defense had received more than 1 Authentic Scottie Upshall Jersey ,000 pages of police reports related to the case and expected to gain access to video evidence soon.
Bruno said he plans to request a delay to the start of the trial to get additional time to review the “enormous” amount of evidence received from the government.
A spokesman for the FBI’s Springfield, Illinois, office referred questions to US Attorney spokeswoman Sharon Paul.
Paul said prosecutors had no update on Zhang Yingying’s whereabouts and declined to provide details of search efforts.

Pop star Taylor Swift was in court Monday as the trial began in a case pitting her against a DJ accused of groping her at an event.
Eight jurors were selected Monday with Swift looking on in the courtroom, a court employee confirmed to AFP. According to local media, she sat with her lawyers Authentic Joel Edmundson Jersey , dressed in a light top and dark blazer.
Swift, 27, could take the stand to give details of the alleged assault during a meet and greet four years ago.
Swift says radio DJ David Mueller grabbed her buttock during a visit backstage at the Pepsi Center in Denver in June 2013 before a concert.
Mueller was sacked two days after the allegations by his local employer, radio station KYGO.
He launched a lawsuit against Swift in September 2015, alleging that she should have called the police rather than his managers and that she had caused him to lose his job and salary.
Mueller accuses Swift's aides of calling the radio station to demand his firing the day after the encounter Authentic Carl Gunnarsson Jersey , according to court documents.
Mueller said in the lawsuit he was aware of an incident but said it was one of his friends who had touched her inappropriately and then bragged about it.
Swift has counter-sued for sexual assault, saying she was ""forced to start a one-hour concert before 13,000 fans while still in distress after being so inappropriately touched.""
A photo published by the TMZ celebrity news website showing Swift posing between Mueller and his girlfriend is expected to be among the key pieces of evidence.
In the image, the DJ's hand is level with the pop-star's backside but it's not clear if he is touching her.
Swift testified at a deposition that she is certain Mueller intentionally grabbed her.
Mueller denies it and is suing the singer-songwriter for $3 million while Swift is seeking a symbolic $1 and a ruling that holds him responsible.
The ""Shake It Off"" and ""Bad Blood"" singer argues that a verdict in her favor will serve as an example for other women who might fear coming forward in similar circumstances.
The trial is expected to last about nine days.
