The school is known to have revealed the destination to Jeju Island.

However, when Chaoyang did not go to school on the 16th after the experiential learning period ended, the school tried to contact the parents, but they did not reach them, and on the 22nd they reported the disappearance to the police.

As a result of the police investigation, it was found that the Chaoyang family crossed the Gogeum Bridge in a car and entered Wando on the 29th of last month at 2 pm.

Two days later, at around 4 am, the life reaction (cell phone base station signal, etc.) appeared in the Songgok Port area of ​​Sinji-myeon, Wando-gun, the last act of the Choyang family.

Since the police have no clue as to the whereabouts of the family, the search has been difficult.

No traces of participation in the visit to Jeju Island or the experience of living in a rural area in Wando for a month have yet been found.

As a result, the police disclosed Chaoyang's real name and photo, and the model and number of the car used by the family to the residents of Gwangju, where she lived, and Wando, her last destination.

It is said that Chaoyang's parents are in their mid-30s, and since they closed their business at the end of last month, they do not currently have a job or business.
