Initially, Long and his wife did not realize their son had vanished until he failed to come home for dinner that night.

“I was thinking, maybe he went to his classmate’s house during this period.”

Police later named a 53-year-old man from Baoshan with the surname Liu as the prime suspect in the case and he later turned himself over to the police along with the boy.
