Hi everyone. Please reblog this. I’ve known William since I was 3 years old. My family is worried and his parents are devastated. Please get the word out. I’m just crossing my fingers and hoping that he is safe. 

Name: William Gu (Chinese-American)
Height: 5’11”
Eye Color: Dark Brown
Hair Color: Black
Last seen in Black North face and blue jeans.


William Gu was last seen on 03/07/13, in Brooklyn, New York. He was supposed to meet with a fellow CUNY student from Staten Island, but he never arrived. He was operating his roommate’s 1998 silver Lexus and that vehicle was found abandoned in Somerset, N.J., on 03/07/13 at 7:30 pm, in front of the Somerset Diner on Easton Avenue.

Mr. Gu suffered a traumatic brain injury in a car accident in 2011 and as a result suffers from depression, paranoia and other psychotic behaviors. Mr. Gu has no history of violence and is afraid of the Police. According to his family, he hides when he is scared. He was last seen wearing blue jeans and the black North Face Jacket depicted above. Mr. Gu is a 22 year old Chinese male, 5’11/145 lbs., brown hair and eyes. He is fluent in Chinese and English.

He resides in both Brooklyn and Perth Amboy so investigations are being conducted in both States. Anyone with information is asked to contact the Det. G Simao (PAPD) 732-324-3813 or NJ State Police at (800) 709-7090 or the NYPD at (718) 946-3311.
