Hang Lee was last seen getting into a car with her friend and several passengers. Her friend has since returned home but Hang has not been heard from since.
On the day she disappeared, Hang Lee, a Highland Park High School senior who worked at a local restaurant, went to meet a friend who was supposed to introduce her to a 30-year-old St. Paul man she thought could give her a better job. Her friend was working for the man's painting and decorating business on the East Side. He asked her if Hang Lee wanted a job and arranged to meet her. They met a few days later.
The man dropped Hang Lee's friend off at an East Side gas station and drove away with Hang Lee in the car. That was the last time Hang Lee is reported to have been seen.
Her parents, who are refugees from Laos and did not speak English at the time, reported her as a missing person to the police. In the years before she disappeared, her parents believed she was hanging out with a bad crowd. But a few months before she disappeared, she was becoming much more stable. She was working and she wasn't hanging out with the people she wasn't supposed to.
She planned to go the University of Minnesota and wanted to be a writer. The last person Hang Lee was seen with has a history of charges for sex offenses, though it's unclear whether he was convicted. Police questioned him, but he was uncooperative. He got a lawyer, who told him not to speak to authorities about the case.
