Yuan's nickname in Incha. She speaks limited English.
Yuan was smuggled into the United States from China on August 25, 1998. Her smugglers were caught and arrested, ad Yuan was sent to live with a foster family.
Yuan was last seen getting off her school bus at approximately 3:00 pm on October 21, 1998. She never made it back to her foster home, and has not been seen again. An extensive search of the area produced no clues as to her whereabouts.
Yuan's immediate family still lives in China. She told immigration officials she was 12, but she may have been as old as 15 when she arrived in the United States. She may be in the Kansas City, Missouri area. Police believe she either ran away out of fear of being deported, or was abducted, possibly by one of her smugglers.
