On January 27, 2017, Xiao Jianhua, a permanent resident illustrator artwork of Hong Kong and Canadian nationality, was taken away from the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong in a wheelchair, which once became the focus of media attention. Mysterious Disappearance After Xiao Jianhua was taken from the Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong, his family filed a missing persons report with Hong Kong authorities, but withdrew the report a day later, saying they had "reconnected" with Xiao Jianhua. Hong Kong police said surveillance footage from the scene showed Xiao Jianhua did not leave the hotel under duress,

He also praised China's "rule of law" and said he was not kidnapped and brought to mainland China. His company also issued statements on his behalf saying he was fine, though those statements were later deleted.
