Her parents have come from China to talk to the media and help police find their daughter.
Her parents have told police that she was victim of domestic abuse.
Yating’s estranged husband reported her missing in July. He said he dropped her off at her apartment on July 15 and has not seen her since, and then last week he told police that he last saw her leaving her apartment on 2800 block of Nash Drive in Coquitlam on July 16.
Yating has two children and her parents said she would not have left them.
Her husband reported her missing when he could not contact her to bring back their children after the weekend.
“She loved the kids very much and there’s no way she would leave the kids and there’s lots of groceries at home that she bought for the kids, and there’s lots of stuff she had in the house. So, if she was going to do that, she would have a plan,” he said.
Yating is 27, Asian, 5’7″ tall, 119 pounds with shoulder length black hair and brown eyes. She speaks English and Mandarin. She also uses public transportation and may have a black backpack with an Apple MacBook computer.
