A mother and daughter who vanished almost two years ago are still missing and authorities are asking for help locating the pair they believe may have been kidnapped.
According to the Irvine Police Department, Amber Aaiz, also known as Mei Yi Wu, 35, and her daughter, Melissa Fu, 13, were last seen around 6 p.m. on November 22, 2019.
That evening, Aiza’s husband said he heard a knock on the family’s apartment door. “When he opened the door, he saw a male and female of Chinese descent standing at the door and he was immediately rendered unconscious by an unknown substance,” police said.
When the man woke up, his wife and daughter were gone.
The husband said he did not recognize the man or woman and that others in the complex may have seen them. The two are possibly connected to an unknown model black Cadillac.
The FBI has described the subjects as a Chinese male and female both in their 40s and each approximately 5’8” with average builds. The woman wore her black hair in a bun while the man has short black hair and weighs about 190 pounds.
The missing mother, Aiaz, is 5’9”, 180 pounds, with medium length black hair and brown eyes. She had on a black shirt, black vest, fitted black pants with white writing and light-colored shoes when she disappeared, according to police.
Her daughter, Fu, is 5’11”, 200 pounds, with medium length dark brown hair and brown eyes. She was wearing a black tracksuit at the time of the incident.
