Belongings of missing UC graduate student found on cliff near Point Reyes

22-year-old Shuqin Zhang, who reportedly suffered from depression, was last seen on Thursday at around 1:30 am in Berkeley and was believed to be headed to Bodega Bay two hours later.

According to Berkeley police, park rangers found her car near the lighthouse at Point Reyes on Saturday morning, and searchers later found some of her belongings on a cliff overlooking the ocean.

Investigators searched for Shuqin Zhang near the Point Reyes Lighthouse.

Friends say Zhang, who is pursuing a Master's degree in statistics, had been feeling despondent and acting out of character lately. Zhang was scheduled to fly home to China on Friday morning, but she did not board her flight. Police are concerned that she may be at risk.

Zhang is described as Asian, 5 feet 2 inches tall, with black hair, brown eyes and weighing about 90 pounds. She wears glasses and was possibly wearing a greenish-blue hooded sweatshirt when she went missing.

Anyone who sees Zhang or has information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Berkeley police at 510-981-5900 (reference case #16-1330), or call 911 or the nearest police department.
