Salem Police Detective Bryan Green says a possible citing of a missing kidnapped Chinese Scholar in Salem has now been ruled out.

Green traveled to Champaign Tuesday to meet with the parents of 26-year-old Yingying Zhang to show them video surveillance of the woman who apparently had been mistaken for her daughter. Green says they were able to see the woman in the video was not their daughter. They were also shown that the same woman that was in Salem on June 16th selling jewelry had also been in Salem on May 19th before Zhang was missing.

Green said the video had been gathered from surveillance cameras at several area businesses.

An investigation into the identity of the woman began after a call was made to the FBI indicating that Zhang may have been in Salem.

Green says the news was disappointing to Zhang's family who continue to try and determine if their daughter is dead or alive. The person believed to have kidnapped her on June 9th, 28-year-old Brendt Christensen, is now in custody. The FBI has indicated they believe Zhang is dead.
