Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Qin was reported missing on 1/5/14 after a roommate became concerned for her well being. She was last seen about 8 p.m. January 5 on a city bus in Oakland. She was a University of Pittsburgh graduate student at the time. The 24-year-old Pitt graduate student in East Asian studies from Shanghai, China, walked away from the house she shared on Shaw Avenue in Squirrel Hill. Qin was not registered for any classes for the spring semester.
Police have tried tracing Qin whereabouts using GPS through her cell phone, but that was negative. Police believe she is in the United States because there have been no hits on her visa in a system that flags such activity at international airports and ports across the country. They have no indication of where Qin might have gone or what happened to her.
