Gao Yu, a prominent Chinese journalist who was imprisoned following the 1989 suppression of the student protests in Tiananmen Square in Beijing, is missing, with friends saying she may have been detained ahead of the 25th anniversary of the crackdown.  

Yao Jianfu, a retired party official and policy researcher in Beijing who is friends with Ms. Gao, said the journalist had been scheduled to attend a meeting on Saturday in Beijing to commemorate the People’s Daily editorial of April 26, 1989, that declared the student protests to be “turmoil” and magnified divisions about how the leadership should deal with the demonstrators occupying Tiananmen Square.
