According to the testimony from a classmate, Chau Van Lo this time was entangled in a trip to Ha Bac because a friend got married there. “She said that there wasn’t much filming that day, so she wouldn’t stay overnight. On the 10th, she would go to Hebei to attend the wedding, but since that day we haven’t heard from her anymore. ..”, this classmate said.
After 33 hours of disappearing for unknown reasons, some classmates went to the police station to report a missing case. Soon after, the incident also began to be widely shared on social networks and in schools. But Chau Van Lo’s father is the one who can’t sit still.
