Gao disappeared from his home in Shaanxi province on Aug. 13, where he’d been living under house arrest. For three weeks, nobody had any contact with him and several family members, including his elder brother, Gao Zhiyi, were summoned by police.

On Sept. 6, Gao Zhiyi learned that his brother was in Beijing.
