The picture of Yan Yi people with their parents before they were missing. Survey of interviewees Shenzhens Cao Pu search shop is the origin of Yan Zhiyong and his wife waiting for their children. This is a small shop less than 12 square meters. There is almost no place for goods to be crowded. In 2002, their children, Yan Yi, disappeared here. They had no news. They had been to Guangzhou, Sichuan, Hebei and other places. Yan Zhiyong thought, the child had been lost more than four years old, he had lived in grass PU for more than a year, and would be impressed. I want to be here, and when he grows up, I think of this place in Pu Po, and I can find me once it comes back. In the village of Shenzhen city Look for the sons shop. Luo Qian, a journalist from the new Beijing News In order to wait for the child, Yan Zhiyong gave up the invitation of his friend to go home and start his own business, and he was apologetic to other children. He lived in the village of Shenzhen city. 16 years later, the owner of the restaurant next door changed several crops. The barber shop on the street turned into a small supermarket and then became a shoe store. Yan Zhiyong and his wife were still waiting. When the child had just lost, Yan Zhiyongs plan was that when the child was 20 years old, he would not wait. Today, the child is really 20 years old, and he cant give up. After all these years, he is still active and no longer waiting. Half an hour, the child lost. The night before the reporter, mother Feng Mei found all the things that were related to Yan Yi in his family - the white T-shirt of the neckline, the small leather shoes that had no time to wear, the pictures that were blurred by the magnification of many times the pixels, and were neatly coded in a plastic bag. She is skilled in opening a folder named Yan B in the computer, showing pictures of the children and looking for people. When they look at the pictures, the computer display is dirty. The little face in the screen becomes less white, and Feng Meiyang brushes and wipes it. The eyes were rubbing and rubbing, and the eyes were red. The picture of Yan Yi, who was left in his home, said the mother was a naughty boy. Survey of interviewees When he lost her son, she and her husband came to Shenzhen to fight soon. They just borrowed money to open a printing shop and slept only five or six hours a day, hoping for better days. She remembered that her last time he saw his son was about half past five in the afternoon of January 22, 2002. Her husband was installing a second-hand glass door. She was ready to go upstairs and have a shower. She saw his son squatting in the door and playing with sand. Do not play, come back to dinner earlier. Unexpectedly, half an hour later, the child was lost. At dinner, Feng Mei didnt see her children. An unprecedented sense of fear enveloped her. The scalp was very painful. Like to burst, she started to start the family and start looking for a child. Through the witnesss narration, she roughly pieced together the track of action before his sons disappearance. After school, Yan Yi, four, asked his father for one yuan, bought two ice cream in the small and medium store in the salon street, and sent one of them to his classmates Huang Yuhua, two of them met the kindergarten teacher, and Yan Yi people were happy to tell the teacher, I ask the students to eat ice cream. After that, he followed a group of children to play on the roof of Huang Yuhuas house. Feng Meis friend Wen Xiuqing saw Yan B, and asked him, does your father know you play here? the child lied and nodded. The last time to see the child in the village is the owner of a shop at the gate of the school. He knows Yan Yi people. It is clear that at about 6 oclock in the evening, Yan Yi and a boy wearing the school uniform of the primary school are walking together. As for the boy, he did not know and did not see clearly, so the clue was broken. The family still has a pair of leather shoes that Yan Yi can not wear. Luo Qian, a journalist from the new Beijing News At nine oclock in the evening, Yan Zhiyong reported to the police station, and the police replied that the missing time was not more than 24 hours. He was not willing, and he found himself all night. At eight oclock on the second morning, he received a phone call from a Sichuan accent. He said that last night at the roadside of the Huarun supermarket and the grass market, he saw a man with a child about forty years old, and the child was always called mother, and then he hung up. Since then, Yan family has not received the news of Yan Yi in Cao PU. Hope to fall into the air When the child had just lost, Yan Zhiyong, like all the father on the son Road, was looking for a child like crazy. Posted and posted, and heard the news, then Guangzhou, Sichuan, Hebei, as long as the news is reliable, he will run in person. For many years, he felt the most relaxing time, on the way to looking for a son, the train moved slowly, and repeated the words in his mind. This is your child, like a dream. It is the most hopeless thing to get to the station, wake up, and feel hopeless. He had met more than once a swindler. At the farthest time, someone called, saying that someone in Shijiazhuang had a boy with his hands closed, a scald scar in the back of his right ear and a southern accent. As long as he went to Shijiazhuang, he took him to see the child. The other side said so much that he must have seen his son. Yan Zhiyong was so happy that he pulled Feng Mei up to Shijiazhuang. Because he was too excited, he forgot his cell phone in the taxi. After they arrived in Shijiazhuang, the other side did not show up, and asked them which hotel to live in. Yan Zhiyong proposed to listen to the voice of the child. These years, Yan Zhiyong also had several hopeful moments. One was in 2003, and less than a year after Yan Yi lost. In Shenzhen, more than 10 children in the area of Cao Pu, Bu Xin, Qingshui River and Longgang were abducted and sold. These children, like Yan Yi, are the children of migrant workers, and their parents are busy with their livelihood. The children are taken away in the crowded places such as the market, the supermarket and the doorway. In 2003, the village in the village of Cao Pu, Shenzhen, was found in the village. The picture comes from the Shenzhen News Network In that year, Shenzhen set up a 9. 09 Shenzhen grass Po child abduction case group. In October 20, 2003, the case broke out. The criminal suspect admitted that they frequently took a case in the area of grass Po and mud Gang, using a 8 year old child to lure the children from the street to go home, and then take the kidnapped children to the Chaoyang or Jieyang. It took 3 days for a child to sell from an abduction to a sale. This crackdown has rescued 18 abducted children before and after the crackdown. Unfortunately, there are no Yan people in it. Yan Zhiyong, some of the time, the similar time, similar location, similar techniques, why other children can find their children, but their children can not find it? Another hopeful moment was 2009, the founding of the state 60th anniversary, the state attached importance to the case of abduction, and the police officer of the Luohu District abduction case group made a new case for the case of Yan B, and extracted the DNA of Mr. and Mrs. Yan Zhiyong. Yan Zhiyong hopes for high technology and hopes that now that technology is developed, if children pick up DNA one day, will they soon find it. He hoped to fail one by one. He could not think of any other way. The only thing he could do was to stay where he was. Children are more than four years old to lose, and unlike two or three year old children, there will be memories. He often reminds him of his own teaching when he was a child. If he was lost, he stood in the place, his mother and mother would come back to find you. Now, the other way back, he kept in the place, and waited for the child to come back to find himself. Search shop The way in which Yan Zhi Yong kept his place was to open a canteen. At first, he was just waiting in the place, opening a shop, looking for a child. In 2009, he saw some people hanging the poster on the door of the shop on the Internet. The original look of the search shop. Survey of interviewees He wrote a letter on the sign, beginning with respected leaders from all levels of government, friends from all walks of life, and at the end, heavy reward. As a result of the city transformation, todays search shop has changed to green signs, called grass Po. the sign on the left is attached with a picture of Yan Bs certificate. In order to stay in Cao Pu, Yan Zhiyong rejected the invitation from friends in Sichuan and did not go back to business. He can print, do detergent, and so on. The townsman persuaded him to go home and set up shop and take care of the baby. He waved his hand and stubbornly stayed in Shenzhen. The store is small, only 12 square meters. Yan Zhiyong and his wife slept on the two floor partition at night. The bathroom was solved in the small corner underneath the staircase. There was a table with two pots at the door of the toilet. It was the kitchen. They pay 3000 yuan a month for rent, and they earn 50 thousand yuan a year, which is barely enough to keep the family alive. The snack bar is near the school. The bell rings, and the shop is full of childish children. They are swinging small change to Feng Mei. Sometimes, pupils who come to buy things will ask curiously, is he still 4? When the wind blows, the child reminds, Auntie, this brothers face is wrinkled. Feng Mei, a mother of Yan Yi, is in the search for children. Luo Qian, a journalist from the new Beijing News The managers of the street offices feel sorry for their husband and wife. They havent charged the property management fee of this shop for many years. People often come in to buy things, ask about their childrens affairs, and weep with her. In the past 16 years, this search shop has been like a tack firmly stuck to the map of Cao PU. All were left behind children The missing child completely changed the family. 7 years after the childs disappearance, in 2009, Yan grandpa died of hatred at the age of 60. Yan Zhiyong said his father had not closed his eyes until he had been buried. Before he was three years old, Yan Yi grew up in his hometown in Sichuan. Now his hometown has been demolished. Survey of interviewees Until now, every time she brought up her children, she repeated all the details, made a lot of assumptions, all the assumptions pointed to the same ending, the child didnt lose - If time can be turned back, I will go back to Sichuan after giving birth, so that the child will not be lost. The child had followed his grandparents to live in the old house in Sichuan. When he came to Shenzhen, a piece of iron ash fell into his eyes. At that time, I should not pick him up. She even began to believe in life, the day when the child lost, his own printing shop was installing a new glass door. Later, it was said that it was unsuitable for the day, she asked, whether the glass door is not installed, the child will not be lost. Four or five years after her childs disappearance, she had taken away all of her children and felt that the child would come back and wait. In 2006, in order to make the elderly happy, she took the risk of high age women and regenerated three children. She habitually called the three small ones, old three, old four, old five, and told them that you had a brother and did not go home so far. Yan Jias big daughter Yan Jiao, the younger brother lost that year, she was 6 years old, nothing to understand, only know that from then on, he had to come home in half an hour after school, to the early high school, and the time to go out and students can not more than one hour. When she talked about her childhood, she had little memory. In addition to a year after one or two grade school and my father and mother, she had the impression that the Spring Festival was a matter after high school. One year after another, she was used to it, and I thought it should have been the way it was. When she was young, she didnt understand her parents. Why didnt she come back? When she grew up, she became aware of her parents feelings - because they had lost a child and they did not dare to bring their children to Shenzhen, for waiting for the lost child, they could not bear to leave Shenzhen. In this way, Yan Jias 4 children have become left behind children. Looking at the newborn child, he is very happy, but each time with the doll, looking at their similar face and brothers face, the heart will think, b people are now good, if he is in the words, should be very high. She still remembered that once, in the heavy rain, she and her brother walked home with hand, wrestling and falling into the small ditch at the door. The younger brother, three years old, took his hand, walked in front, and led himself home all the way. Im sure I cant do it all my life. In the past two years, Yan Zhiyong was somewhat frustrated and felt that the childs affairs were like a grain of sand thrown into the sea, and the echo became weaker and weaker. He seldom receives phone calls about children now, he will laugh at himself, and even the liars will not find me. Last winter, a television station in Shanghai came to cover the story of finding a store. In the end, it did not know why, nor did it report it. He saw Ni Pings waiting for me program, many of the children were found back, watching and crying, filling in many applications, and trying to play the program group phone, always busy, he asked the reporter, whether the child is looking for a little eyebrows, we can go to TV. Many people have asked Yan Zhiyong when to wait in Cao PU. When his child was just lost, his plan was to wait until the child was 20 years old. When the baby is 20 years old, everything that should be remembered will be remembered. Last year, the child was 20 years old, he did not give up again, so many years have survived, he is still able to move, to no longer wait, when the child is 30 years old, he also run 60, and then do the plan. I will never be able to let go of my life. I will always hang on to my heart and let his younger brothers, sisters and sisters not give up. Over the years, Feng Mei often dreamed of Yan Yi. For the first time, he dreamed of him, small and staggering, coming to say that he wanted to find Grandpa. Yan Yi liked the car very much when he was little. He liked to see the excavator most.
