In the past month, many parts of China have regularly experienced cases of missing teenagers. Some netizens said that recently on the Douyin platform (Chinese version of Tiktok), many people have reported that their children are missing. The “Friend Circle” in mainland China also spread the word that the many teen disappearances have bewildered parents. People suspect that the incident may be related to the crime of illegal organ transplantation. Someone analyzed that there may be a “dark web behind the incident.”
Recently, many locations in mainland China reported that hundreds of children between the ages of 12 and 18 were missing. The latest case is a 14-year-old boy in Wuhan named Liu Aocheng, who went missing after going down the stairs to take out the trash. He hasn’t been seen since.
Famous Taiwanese artist Ren Hsien-chi (Richie Jen Hsien-chi) also previously met a father searching for his missing child. He has enthusiastically posted to look for clues from netizens. The influence of this star has attracted many netizens’ attention to the disappearance of children.
A blogger has compiled a list of cases of missing teenagers in recent months and commented that not only one but there have been consecutive disappearances. Moreover, none of the missing people have been found.
Among them, a case that has spread widely in mainland China is Hu Xinyu, a 15-year-old male student from Zhiyuan High School, a closed boarding school in Yanshan county, Shang Rao city, Jiangxi province. He went missing on his way from his dormitory to school on October 14. Parents and the school searched every nook and cranny of the campus but could not find any clues.
On Weibo, a netizen in Hebei left a comment: “In our district, a 16-year-old boy went missing a few months ago on his way home from his grandmother’s house. I was extremely scared when thinking about it.”
A Hunan netizen also reported: “In our small district named Longhui, Shaoyang city, Hunan province, 11 middle school students have been missing for two months. I don’t know if they’ve been found yet. Anyway, I’m afraid to go out.”
Some citizens left messages questioning how with surveillance cameras everywhere and given such strict lockdowns and checkpoints, together with codes scanning for COVID tests, can a large number of teenagers going missing. This is not an isolated case! There is a “dark web” behind this.
Recently, teenagers’ disappearance has occurred frequently, causing Chinese netizens to speculate. Many people suspected it was related to the theft and trafficking of human organs, and panic began to spread online.
A netizen in Guangdong said: “I feel that it is organized and well-calculated.”
An Anhui netizen said: “The missing people are all healthy and well-developed teenagers. It feels like organ trafficking, and lately it feels like there’s an organization behind it with a unified purpose. I feel that this group of people is not afraid of being investigated.”
One netizen revealed that all schools now have to take blood, which is very dangerous when information gets into the hands of the organ trafficking network. Hundreds of teenagers go missing in Wuhan, but the police ignore it. Wuhan is the largest organ transplant site.
Some netizens warn, “If you do not have any abnormal symptoms, you shouldn’t have a medical check-up, because if you’re not careful, your organs are suitable for someone in need. Don’t think that the other missing person has nothing to do with you either, as maybe you will be next. Look, you don’t even see homeless people on the streets anymore.”
News revealed by the mainland media seems to confirm the netizens’ speculation.
On June 14 of this year, the official website of the CCP published the “Report on the Development of Organ Transplantation in China (2020).” According to the “Report,” from 2015 to 2020, China ranks second in the world in organ donation and transplantation. Furthermore, according to the report, nearly 90% of Chinese people are willing to become organ donors, most of whom are from the younger generation (the “post-00” generation).
According to Sound of Hope, netizens found an article on a mainland website on April 21, 2021, which said that a doctor and some other people in Jiangsu were accused of going to Anhui for illegal organ harvesting in a modified ambulance and were later sentenced to one year. However, he argued that he was innocent of the party’s behavior. Netizens especially highlighted in red the words “action sent by the state.”
Some netizens have posted photos from the Henan News Network, showing that several organ transplant centers have been set up in Henan Province. The post strongly recommends that transplant facilities disclose the origin and storage of transplanted organs to the whole society.
A large number of illegal organ transplant criminals in China have attracted the international community’s attention.
On September 19, 2021, many officials from the United States, Great Britain, France, Sweden, Spain, and other countries participated in the third session of the “World Summit on Combating and Preventing Forced Organ Harvesting.” The summit condemned the CCP’s ongoing crimes against humanity in harvesting organs from prisoners of conscience, mainly Falun Gong practitioners, and called on the world to pass laws and raise public awareness to stop the CCP’s crimes.
