      Did you mean to write 5’1?

    2. lynn says:

      Is the height (6′ 1″) correct?

    3. Bruce Bernstein says:

      i hope Ms. Chao is ok and located quickly.

      a question: is it possible that 6’1″ /125 involves a typo? i think that height/weight combination would be extremely thin, and she does not appear so from the photo.

    4. Roseann Milano says:

      Six foot one inch and 125 pounds? Is that correct?

    5. Christine E says:

      I hope she is found soon.

      Curious, what is the backstory on this and other missing person reports? From Law & Order etc. I thought that there was a waiting period for an adult to be declared missing… in this case it seems she was declared missing only about 14 hours after last being seen. And she does not appear in the NYPD Crime Stoppers missing persons list (http://nypdnews.com/tag/missing-person/) — so may be found?

        My reaction is the same re height and weight. But I am out of the country– suggest one of you text a quick message to the tips line — although I do hope WSR will update their story!

    6. Andrew says:

      I live on 107th and she is very tall. 6-1 sounds about right.

    7. Gab says:

      Coincidence that two women were found missing and/or dead on 107th this week?

    8. Steve McGhee says:

      Readers will be interested in knowing that this Taiwanese woman has lived there for at least 20-25 years and is a cello teacher.

    9. Bruce Bernstein says:

      update? has she been located?
