  • Details of Disappearance
    Mouy Tang was a longtime resident at Unique Living, an assisted care facility near Lawndale north of Shelby, N.C., but was off-site when last seen around 7:35 a.m. near Burns High School in Cleveland County. There was an unconfirmed sighting in the same area by a student around 1:30 p.m.

    More than a dozen searches have been conducted with no clues as to here whereabouts. Tang was known to catch rides over the years and could have gone across the state line to York County or anywhere.

    Tang came to Hendersonville, N.C., with her family in 1980, after her family escaped war-torn Cambodia. Mouy Tang 's English is not very good and her communication is limited.

    Unique Living has been the subject of repeated complaints and state violations, including investigations into the deaths of at least two residents. Tang has been a resident at Unique Living for about 15 years. State officials later suspended the home's license after concluding that conditions, including improper supervision of residents, put residents in imminent danger.
