Drone Helps Police Catch A Human Trafficker After 17 Years Of Hiding

Police in China used a drone to track down and arrest a convicted human trafficker who escaped prison 17 years ago and has been hiding from then.

China News reported that in 2002, after being put into prison for women and children trafficking, Song Jiang, who was 43 at that time, escaped from a prison in Sichuan Province.

This criminal then walked hundreds of kilometers, even escaping the police’s pursuit to hide in a remote mountainous area in his hometown in Yunan, China. The wanted man had been living in a cave isolated from society for the past 17 years without anyone knowing.

It was not until September that Yongshan Police received some clues about Song’s hiding place, according to the police’s official WeChat account. Based on the information, the police had mobilized a large number of officers to catch this wanted criminal.

However, because of the rugged topography of the Yunnan mountainous area, along with dense jungle, making it difficult for the police to search for the trafficker. The police then decided to use a drone to assist the search.

After 5 hours of continuous searching, the drone finally spotted something that looked like a blue steel tile, signaling the presence of a living human being. The police then walked for 1 hour and found Song living in a 2-square-meter cave which had been his hideout place for all these years.

The police stated that Song had been living drinking water taking from the river in a plastic bottle and using branches to make a fire for cooking. Photos showed that inside a cave, there was a small bed and some old pots which probably had been used for cooking.

After 17 years without any communication with the living world, Song, now a 63-year-old man, has difficulties interacting with police officers. China News reported that this trafficker has been transported to a prison in Sichuan Province to continue serving his sentence.
