Details of Disappearance

Wang was last seen leaving home for work in Darien, Illinois on August 10, 1999. She was a doctor at Rush-Copley Medical Center in Aurora, Illinois. She never arrived there and has never been heard from again.

Wang's husband found her red 1994 Toyota Camry with the Illinois license plate number EOD671 only hours after he reported her missing. It was in a forest preserve about five miles from her home. A few weeks later, her pager was located in the weeds at Cass Avenue near Frontage Road. Authorities were unable to get any clues from it, however.

Wang was born in China and moved to the United States in 1989. She left behind two children, and her husband is disabled and unable to work. He stated he didn't think she would have abandoned the family. Her case remains unsolved.
