On April 15, York Police found her in a hotel and charged 37-year-old Shichao Dong, 26-year-old Zeping Gao, and 23-year-old Zhipu Dong each with one count of kidnapping.

Dong also faces charges for possession of a firearm, careless storage of a firearm, careless storage of ammunition, and unauthorized possession of device or ammunition.

Han remains at large and York Police are asking anyone with information on her whereabouts to come forward.

Anyone with information is asked to call the York Regional Police #2 District Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-866-876-5423, ext. 7241.
