Family Says Missing Appleton Woman Wasn’t A Runaway Or Suicidal
APPLETON – Caitlyn Pa Chia Xiong, the 20-year-old Appleton woman who has been missing for more than a week, disappeared under suspicious circumstances, her family said.
“She’s not a runaway,” Kerry Yang, a spokesman for Xiong’s family, told USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin. “She wasn’t suicidal. We think something has befallen her.”
Yang is pleading for the public’s help to find Xiong.
“We’re trying to locate her in any way that we can,” she said. “The police have been looking for her, but we have not had any leads. We are really worried about her.”
Appleton police haven’t disclosed a lot of information about Xiong’s disappearance.
“In speaking with investigators, there are some things we are working on which require us to keep details to a minimum,” Sgt. Dave Lund said in an email.
Investigators asked the Appleton Fire Department and the Outagamie County Sheriff’s Department to help them search a stretch of the Fox River from Peabody Park to State 441 on Wednesday, but they found no sign of Xiong.
