URBANA, Ill. — The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information that will help locate a visiting scholar from China who disappeared from the University of Illinois.

Twenty-six-year-old Yingying Zhang was a month into a yearlong appointment at the university when she disappeared June 9.

Campus police say surveillance video shows her entering a black Saturn Astra vehicle in Urbana that afternoon.

The FBI announced the reward Saturday.
