A PCC student Liya “Jessie” Lu, 31, has been missing for almost three weeks, according to a missing person’s report filed Aug. 14 with the San Gabriel Police Department.”Liya is still an outstanding missing person and any information that can be provided to aid in finding her can help,” said Detective James Just, the lead investigator in the case.
“I tried to call her but it went to her voicemail. A lot of people are concerned about her,” said William Moo, a friend of Lu.
A student who had been attending PCC for more than two years, Lu was planning to attend the nursing program in the fall, Moo added.
Lu, who regularly wears glasses, is 5 feet 3 inches tall, and about 120 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair with light brown highlights. Lu was last seen wearing a dark colored dress with flower patterns and sandals.
She went to work at a law office in San Gabriel approximately at 11 a.m. and returned home sometime after 2 p.m, according to Moo.
While Lu was living in Alhambra she found an apartment in San Gabriel and was in the process of moving in.
When police searched Lu’s residence, they found her car parked and locked with her personal items such as her purse, cell phone and car keys.
“Speaking to her classmates on the cell phone records gave us information, but I feel that others on the records may hold information,” said Detective Just.
The missing person’s report was filed by coworkers from her job at Kaiser Permanente and a law office in San Gabriel.
Lu moved to the United States for more than two years ago. Though her family is in China, they have been notified of the situation.
The San Gabriel Police Department is welcoming any information that can help find Lu. Call (626) 308-2828, and ask for Detective Just.
