(Minghui.org) Falun Gong practitioner Mr. Chen Yuxin from Shanghai was illegally arrested six months ago, and there has been no information regarding his whereabouts. His family is extremely concerned for his safety.

Mr. Chen was arrested while distributing Falun Gong informational materials on January 4, 2014. The Baoshan District Domestic Security Team and the Zhuangmiao Police Station officers ransacked his home that night and took many Dafa books and cash with positive messages about Falun Gong printed on them. He was officially arrested by the Baoshan District Procuratorate a month later.

His wife is extremely worried about him and has searched everywhere for him. She was deceived by a con man who claimed he would help find her husband - for a fee. She lost tens of thousands of yuan and still does not know where her husband is.

Mr. Chen Yuxin, in his 50s, lives in Sitangyichun in the Baoshan District of Shanghai. He is a locksmith, but he also installs kitchen and bathroom fixtures and does maintenance.

Since he started practicing in 1996, he has abided by the principles of Falun Gong, Truthfulness-Compassion-Forbearance. His prices are fair, and he is honest in all his business dealings. He has a great reputation among his customers and neighbors.
