U.S. legal residents may have disappeared into the sprawling network of detention camps in China’s northwestern Xinjiang Province, Sam Brownback, U.S. Ambassador at Large for International Religious Freedom, said at a press briefingThursday.

Brownback told reporters in Washington D.C. that he had received an unconfirmed report that a California man’s father, a U.S. legal resident, disappeared after visiting Xinjiang several months ago.

“I received [an] e-mail from a gentleman in the United States whose father is still in Xinjiang who hasn’t – he’s not been able to reach him for months, 75-year-old man, doesn’t know whether – where he is and whether he’s still alive.” Brownback said.
