A 19-year-old man has been charged with the murder of a Chinese woman who vanished from her Sydney home, as detectives continue searching for her body.
Qi Yu, 28, was last seen by friends at a Campsie share house in the city’s southwest on Friday evening. She spoke to her family in China about 7.15pm that day.
She was reported missing on Saturday and police found her white Toyota Corolla in Burwood, four kilometres away.
On Wednesday NSW police said a man, 19, had been arrested after he was released from hospital on Tuesday and charged with murder.
He is due to appear at Burwood local court on Wednesday.
Yu’s mother has travelled to Sydney and visited the Campsie house, a neighbour said.
“She cried and cried,” Vincent Chen told the Daily Telegraph.
He described Yu as “very honest and quiet”.
