On December 12, 2000, Falun Dafa practitioner Zhang Cuirong went to Beijing to appeal against the injustice done to Dafa. She was arrested on the morning of December 13 and brought to the branch office of the Tiananmen Police Station where she registered herself as Zhang Zhen, coming from Erdaohezi, Changchun City, Jilin Province. At the branch office, Ms. Zhang was separated from another practitioner. Almost five years have passed, and there is no news of her. Her son went to various police branch offices in Beijing and inquired as to her whereabouts many times and but to no avail.
Ms. Zhang's family members put a missing-person advertisement on Tianjin TV, and also went to Heizuizi Forced Labor camp at Erdaohezi, her hometown, to look for her, but were turned away by unfriendly officers.
Name: Zhang Xiulan
Missing since 2000
Ms. Zhang Xiulan, 49, lived in Zhengzhou City, Henan Province.
Zhang Xiulan started learning Falun Dafa in 1997. On December 21, 2000, she went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Dafa, and no one has heard from her since.
In late December 2000 and early January 2001, Ms. Zhang's family members conducted an extended search for her in Beijing and found that she had been detained by the Beijing Police in the Chaoyang District, but were told that she had been released. As to why she did not go home, the police said that she must have been afraid to return home. For over five years now, there has still been no news of her whereabouts.
Zhang Xiulan was working with the Daily Chemical Shares Pty Ltd. and she lived in Unit 4, 5th level, at the intersection of Dongfeng Road and Xinxi Road, Jinshui District.

Before she went missing, Ms. Zhang lived at Huoju Village, Daqing City, Heilongjiang Province. Just before the New Year 2002, she went to Beijing to appeal for Falun Gong, and has not been heard from since.
Zhang Min's sister wishes to find out what has happened to her and would appreciate any news of her whereabouts.
