On August 26, 1998, Yim Yeung Tsui, 19, disappeared under unknown circumstances. Yim, or Jimmy as he was often called, was a student at Stony Brook University, had been summering with is family in New Hyde Park, New York. On the morning of his disappearance, his older sister, Victoria, stopped by his room as she left for work at 8:30 a.m. Yim's bedroom door was open, and he was sound asleep in his bed. Nothing seemed unusual. It was the last time he was seen.
About Yim Yeung Tsui
In May 2011, investigators looked into the possibility that the remains of "John Doe #8" found along Ocean Parkway in Long Island, NY, might be that of Jimmy Tsui. The John Doe was an Asian male in his late teens or early 20s, but investigators noted differences between the two physical descriptions. Suffolk forensic experts compared a DNA sample from the remains to one of Tsui's sisters and concluded that the remains did not belong to Tsui. Jimmy Tsui is still missing.
Tsui's name and photos are still listed in national missing persons databases, but that has not yielded any results. His family remains hopeful that Tsui will return or that they will someday find answers.
