(Clearwisdom.net) The following information concerns two Falun Dafa practitioners from Hunan Province who have been missing for over four years.

Ms. Li Xiaoying

Ms. Li Xiaoying, a farmer, has been missing since January 2001. She was 43 years old at the time and lived at Shangjie Team, Xinping Village, Chengping Town, Anren County, Chenzhou District, Hunan Province, Zip Code 423600.

Ms. Li Xiaoying went to Beijing with fellow practitioners Li Yunhua, Li Sanfa, Wang Yeqing and others to appeal for justice for Falun Gong in January 2001. Beijing police officers arrested them. The Anren County 610 Office and the Chengping Town administration dispatched officers to Beijing to collect Ms. Li Xiaoying and the others to take them back. On the way back to Chengping, the practitioners were handcuffed together in pairs against the train benches. Ms. Li Xiaoying and Ms. Li Yunhua were handcuffed together. Ms. Li Yunhua recalled, "We were both sleeping at the time. When I woke up, the other part of the handcuff was empty, and Ms. Li Xiaoying was gone. I don't know what happened. Those in the same train didn't say anything about the disappearance of Ms. Li. I have not seen Li Xiaoying since then." (Li Sanfa and Wang Yeqing were later detained in the Changsha City Xinkaipu Forced Labor Camp for further persecution.)

Practitioner Ms. Guo Hongying from the Yongzhou District of Hunan Province related the following experience from her detention in prison: "In the middle of the night, Beijing police officers in trucks would take those practitioners who had gone to appeal to a remote mountain region. Some of the practitioners were bleeding all over as a result of beatings; some of them were almost dead. The police officers would then dig a hole in the ground. They would then make the practitioners climb into the hole and proceed to try and extract information from them. The mental suffering of these practitioners, both old and young, must have been severe. If the practitioners still refused to say anything, they would be left in the hole, and dirt would be piled up to their necks. Many practitioners were left alone in the mountains this way."

Mr. Liu

Mr. Liu was about 35 years old when he disappeared sometime during the latter half of 1999.

Mr. Liu used to work as a driver for the Dongyandu 710 Factory in the Hengyang District of Hunan Province. Sometime towards the end of 1999, Mr. Liu went to Changsha City, Hunan Province, to appeal for Falun Gong and was illegally detained in a Changsha City jail. When Mr. Liu's wife went to visit him in jail, the jail officers told her that Mr. Liu had escaped and they weren't sure of his whereabouts. In past cases the police have lied to cover up their bad deeds, so it is possible that Mr. Liu was persecuted to death in jail. There is no further information about Mr. Liu's current status. When he was arrested, Mr. Liu had a six-year-old boy at home, who was left without Mr. Liu's care.
