    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?

    Just read something about her and came here to see if there were any updates. I hope she is safe and just wanted to disappear. but it doesnt seem good that she was depressed and didnt seem to want to continue her studies

    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.

    Appearing to be their standard, Philadelphia PD Press Release:

    "The Philadelphia Police Department is currently seeking the public's help in identifying a woman
    found injured in West Philadelphia.

    On Wednesday, April 1 at approximately 10:08 AM, Medic 9 responded to a radio call for a female on the highway at 5400 Chestnut St.

    Medics located an Asian Female who did not speak English. The woman appeared disoriented and unkempt; however, she did not appear to be injured.

    The female was transported to Misericordia Hospital ER at 501 S 54th Street for evaluation. The female had no personnel possessions with her and was wearing
    Red Hospital Slippers, a Purple Sweater, and Gray Sweat Pants.

    An Officer responded to the hospital and spoke to the female in Mandarin Chinese, at which time she became agitated and would not tell the Officer her name or any other information.

    On Thursday, April 2, 2015, Southwest Detective Division met with the female, using an Interpreter; however, she made several incoherent statements and was not able to provide any information.

    Anyone with information on the female's identity, please contact
    Southwest Detective Division at 215-686-3183..." [Emphasis by Richrd]

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