The Illinois man charged in the disappearance of a Chinese graduate student appeared in court today.
Brendt Christiansen is accused of kidnapping University of Illinois student Yingying Zhang.
Investigators say Christiensen attended a vigil for Zhang the night before he was arrested.
Zhang was last seen in a surveillance photo getting into Christensen’s car on June 9.
Christensen admits to giving her a ride, but says she got out of his car.
So far, no body has been discovered.
