    "When from a long distant past nothing persists, after the people are dead, after things are broken and scattered, still alone, more persistent, more faithful, the smell and taste of things remain poised a long, long time like souls, ready to remind us, waiting, hoping for their moment amid the ruins of all the rest, and bear unfaltering in the tiny and almost impalpable drop of their essence the vast structure of recollection."

    Wow does she look young!

    I'm curious where she's doing grad school and what she's studying, particularly given that she still speaks very little English, despite having been here for two years.

    It could shed a lot of insight as to who she is around, etc.

    The article here says Qi has been depressed, and may be suicidal. She packed up her things and told her roomate she was leaving.

    Pittsburgh Uni does require foreign students to have competency in English, and Qi is a graduate so I don't think her English is going to be that limited. There seems to be a message in Chinese in the comments for her.

    I hope Qi is safe somewhere.

    I am really worried about the chances of ever finding Qi, because of several factors;

    It may be difficult to obtain family DNA, as they're in China

    If Qi's doesn't have fluent English, it's likely her parents have even less and can't help with the search

    There is no clothing description, which might be the only way to link a person found deceased with Qi

    People who know her are students - they are going to move around and away eventually

    I'm worried that if information about any jewelry/clothing/id/old fractures/dentals is not obtained now, the chance might be lost forever. And I would like to know if it is Mandarin Chinese Qi speaks so perhaps flyers could be designed in her first language. I am going to try and see if any of that information is available I think.

    I am hoping Qi is alive and well of course. But I can't help worrying about a worst case scenario and what might happen if she is found in years to come, when her case may be forgotten.

    I wish we knew if she likes hiking or walking, or her favorite places to go. She 'packed up her things'. So was she carrying a large rucksack or suitcase? Cell or laptop?

    Qi Qin was having second thoughts about her education when the University of Pittsburgh recessed for the winter holidays last month.

    I dont see how it can be true that her English is less than very good if she is a grad student. I hope she is found safe.

    I think that the unidentified woman looks much older and heavier than Qi. Surely there has been an update to that case since April?
