(Clearwisdom.net) In late September 2005, Tang Jianguo and his son, Tang Xiongchao, were arrested at their home in Hanyang District, Wuhan City. (An earlier report of this incident is available at http://www.clearwisdom.net/emh/articles/2005/12/23/68223.html) Xiongchao's whereabouts remain unknown. A stranger informed Tang Li, Tang Jianguo's daughter, that her brother is dead. On May 18, 2006, Li visited her father in the Taojialing Brainwashing Center in Hanyang District, but she never returned home. The brainwashing center authorities refused to comment on the whereabouts of Tang Jianguo and Tang Li. The Tangs' whereabouts and fates are unknown. We hereby appeal to all kind-hearted people to support and pay close attention to this case.

Tang Jianguo, known to many as Grandpa Tang, is in his 60s and lives beside Lianhua Lake in Hanyang District, Wuhan City. Tang was a high-level government official. The Nine Commentaries on the Communist Party helped Tang to see through the deceptions of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). On November 24, 2005, National Security Bureau agents arrested Tang for telling his former colleagues about the Nine Commentaries. Not long after, Tang's son, Xiongchao, was also arrested. Xiongchao is a student at Wuhan University. Police refused tell Tang's relatives where Xiongchao is detained. After reports of the organ-harvesting at Sujiatun Death Camp emerged, Xiongchao's sister, Tang Li, received a phone call from a stranger, who told her that Xiongchao was dead, and warned her to be careful. Li was saddened and frightened. She feared that her mother could not withstand this blow, so she was reluctant in exposing her brother's death.

When Clearwisdom.net published Tang Jianguo's illegal arrest, the police granted Li permission to visit her father. The visit was under surveillance. Police had to blindfold Li to take her to the secret detention center, where Jianguo was held. Many other Falun Gong practitioners were also detained in this secret camp. Li was certain that this camp is not the Taojialing Detention Center in Hanyang District.

In the morning of May 18, 2006, Li left her home for Taojialing Detention Center in Hanyang District to visit her father, but she never returned home. Li's mother went to look for her in Taojialing Center. The authorities at the center flagrantly denied seeing Li or detaining Jianguo. Now three members of the Tang family are missing, and they are likely in danger.
