Family of Yingying Zhang returning to China
CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WICS) —
The family of Yingying Zhang is returning home to China.
For the past four months, her father has visited her apartment almost every day hoping his daughter would return.
When police first delivered the news his daughter had been kidnapped and presumed dead the family planned to stay until her remains were found.
They wanted to take her home for a proper burial.
The family is reluctant to leave, but Zhang's mother is in fragile health.
28-year-old Brendt Christenson is charged with kidnapping resulting in death.
