    Police said Xiong left her home around 12:30 a.m. and was walking in the area of Olive and First. While on the phone with a friend she seemed suddenly surprised, then the call dropped.

    Xiong was last seem wearing a grey T-shirt and white denim jeans, with a pink and white purse with a gold chain shoulder strap.

    that's not the finest area. also, there has been a history of trafficking young Asian women from Fresno.

    My attempt at summarizing the PC:

    Lucy came home drunk about 12:30 AM and got into an argument with her parents, she then ran ran the house upset. She called her boyfriend on the phone about 10 minutes later. He could tell she was walking on gravel. After about 6 minutes on the phone, her boyfriend heard her scream and say "Oh, *****" before the phone cut off. He tried to call her back and then went to her parents house and explained to her parents what happened.

    The next morning her parents reported her missing. Her parents do not speak much English and had to use their son as an interpreter. Lucy had run away from home one other time when she was 14 but she only stayed away one night. She has never runaway again since that time. A neighbor who spoke to her parents was concerned Lucy was abducted and later provided more info to the police about her screaming before the phone went off.

    A neighbor who heard about her being missing reported to police that they had heard a disturbance that night about 1 block south of where she went missing. They have searched the neighborhood and the family home. They have used a canine to search.

    Lucy's debit card and credit cards have been used about dozen times since she went missing. 10 times on the 28th and twice on the 31st. Most the locations were in the Tower district and some were in Madeira. One location her card was used was a smoke shop. Another was a pizza parlor. They have video from these locations. Different individuals used the cards.

    Just after 1 AM on Friday someone called about a female in a canal, possibly drowning. They searched the canal and were not able to locate anyone. Police think it's possible Lucy may have been walking along the canal, which has gravel. She may have tripped and fallen into the canal or it may be foul play and someone took her purse, it is hard to determine. These are speculations. They are still searching the Canal. They have underwater cameras, they will lower the water and send in a dive team if necessary.

    They will also continue to investigate weather Lucy could have been abducted as a parallel investigation.

    Reporter Questions:
    Has she used her phone since?
    Answer: The phone has not been used since. She has an I-phone and they have not been able to ping it. It's possible it's in the water or off.

    Q: Did anyone see a body floating today? or just Friday?
    A: Since our officers responded on Friday morning, there have not been anymore sightings of a body. We are simply using the camera to go through the ares to see if she may be there. They are searching areas that catch floating stuff first. Then if they don't locate a body in the choke points they will lower the water.
    Location on Canal? McKinley and First, around Nielsen and all the way Westbound out of town...
    Canal has a fast moving current... From an investigative point of view these two events are very similar and seem to have happened at the same time so seems like a strong possibility

    Q: Do you have the audio from the phone call?
    A: We do not have any way to access that.

    Q: Do you have a timeline?
    A: the Friday morning report of the drowning happened 9 hours before she was reported missing. So police did not initially connect the two events. The call from the person reporting the drowning was 24 minutes after the phone call to Lucy's boyfriend.

    Police are providing a flyer with the info on social media. Police caution people to not read other rumors on SM and to go by what LE has shared instead.

    Q: Can you describe the people who used her credit card?
    A: One was a Hispanic or white male 25-30, wearing a backwards red baseball cap with a white shirt and black pants, last seen leaving Southfound Fruit from McKinley on a bike. He arrived on a bike and left on a bike.
    Another person using her cc was a male, we cannot determine race, still trying to enhance the video. He had on a hat, long sleeved orange shirt and dark pants. possibly dressed like someone in construction. Those are the only 2 "confirmed" descriptions they have to provide. They are sure these are 2 different people.

    Online fundraisers are NOT legit and not authorized by family. The family has asked any of those to be stopped/removed. At this time there are no legit fundraising efforts for the family.

    Police will continue to explore ALL avenues in case the canal lead does not pan out. He stressed that Lucy is not JUST a missing person, she is a missing person "at risk" with the possibility that she was abducted or fell into the Canal.

    If they have surveillance footage then it should be easy to send out pictures of the individual or individuals who are using them, at least as persons of interest. It's suspicious to say the least.

    Her final call ended with screams. What her boyfriend heard may lead detectives to her.

    I really think that 911 call is the key to all this. It is really suspicious. How close are houses to this canal? Could someone really hear someone drowning from their house? Also I feel if she had fallen in then her purse would've also fallen in, leading to her debit cards not being left on sidewalk for someone to just pick up. I am really thinking abduction.
