2. Lu Qiqi disappeared in Shayang Forced Labor camp, Hubei province
Falun Gong practitioner Lu Qiqi, 40 years old, 1.70 m tall, was abducted to the No. 3 team, Shayang Forced Labor Camp, Hubei Province. He was brainwashed for four months, but maintained his steadfast righteous thoughts. Under his influence, several collaborators became clear-headed again, and declared that their words and deeds under forced brainwashing were null and void, thereby greatly encouraging other detained practitioners. From then on, Lu Qiqi has been missing, and his whereabouts unclear.
3. Four practitioners disappeared on their way to Beijing
Four Falun Gong practitioners, including the Ding Lei sisters from Housing Bank, and Zhang Jiang and Lu Hongjiang from the Laiyang Electricity Bureau, disappeared on their way to Beijing to appeal.
4. Sun Biao disappeared on his way to Beijing in 1999
Mr. Sun Biao, born in Jianghu, Jiangsu Province in 1951, and employed by the No.2 Water Supply Company of Huanggang City, Hubei Province, disappeared in September 1999 at the age of 48.
Sun Biao was a pure-hearted person and willingly bore the burden of hard work. Due to frequent work under water he suffered serious schistosomiasis, which was eventually cured after he started practicing Falun Gong in 1994.
On September 19, 1999, Sun Biao went to Beijing to appeal for justice for Falun Gong and has been missing since that day.
After the local police station learned that Sun Biao went to Beijing, they contacted Mr. Sun's wife Tong Qiaoying to issue a penalty of 5000 yuan, and promised that they would bring him back from Beijing with that money. Tong Qiaoying did not have enough money, so she borrowed 2000 yuan and gave it to an official at the police station, who did not give her any receipt. The police never went to Beijing to find Sun Biao. In January 2006, Tong Qiaoying remarried.
