Brother of missing Brossard woman worries she may have been victim of violent crime
BROSSARD – Jian Lun Li and Jian Ying Li arrived from China almost three months ago and now call Montreal home.
Since their arrival, they’ve dedicated their lives to one thing: finding their missing little sister.
42-year-old Jian Ping Li and her infant son Xiao Feng were reported missing in late April.
“When we heard they went missing we were devastated,” the missing woman’s brother Jian Jun Li told Global News.
“We’re very anxious.”
Li works as a police detective in central China and has taken a temporary leave from his job, using his skills here to find his Canadian sister.
Li worries something bad has happened.
“I believe she was kidnapped or killed,” he says holding back tears.
The missing woman’s husband, Hong Hui Lu, refused numerous requests for interviews from Global News.
Police say Jian Ping Li left her Sabourin Crescent home on April 30th with no identification, no money, and strangely no stroller for her baby.
A week after the disappearance, police set up a command post in the neighbourhood.
They handed out flyers and spoke with countless neighbours.
Police spokesperson Mark David told Global News, 90 people have called the Police Info-Crime tip-line with information on the woman’s possible whereabouts.
One of the tips brought detectives to the backyard of the woman’s home.
It was dug up for clues but nothing was found.
“We even have assistance from the RCMP, the provincial police, Interpol for connections in mainland China,” says Cst. Mark David.
“There is a possibility Mrs. Li would have gone back to her home country.”
Anyone with information on the case of Jian Ping Li can call 450-463-7211.
