Of course, he didn’t place all his hopes on the police. He contacted the socialites he knew when he was doing business and sent Chen Yuan’s characteristics and photos over, asking them to help look for him.
After calling all the connections he could on both sides of the law, he put away his phone and turned back to Aunt Chen, comforting her in a deep voice. “Aunt Chen, don’t worry too much about Chen Yuan. As long as he’s still in Rao City, we’ll definitely be able to find him.”
Aunt Chen had called him purely out of helplessness. She didn’t have much hope at first, but not only did Qiao Weimin come, he even helped her sincerely.
For a moment, she didn’t know how to thank him. She had never studied before and could not read much. She didn’t know how to say beautiful words, either. Even if she was full of gratitude, she could only thank him dryly. “Chairman Qiao, thank you.”
“Thank you so much.” Her throat was dry. She grabbed her clothes and stood up straight, mumbling, “When we find Yuan-er, I… I’ll treat you to a meal.”
Qiao Weimin looked at her flustered look. Even if she didn’t say anything, he knew that the place she was thinking of treating him to a meal wasn’t a roadside stall. It must be one of the high-end restaurants he used to frequent. A meal at those places would cost at least ten thousand yuan.
Ten thousand yuan wasn’t much to him. However, to someone like Aunt Chen, who worked from dawn to dusk on her stall, to provide for her children’s studies and to pay for her husband’s hospital bills, it was a huge amount.
In the past, he might not have been in the mood to put himself in Aunt Chen’s shoes. After all, many people wanted to treat him to a meal. Even if Aunt Chen, who lived at the bottom of society, wanted to treat him to a meal, he didn’t want to waste time.
He had a different experience now. It was as if he could empathize with Aunt Chen’s feelings.
Qiao Weimin sighed and said, “It’s fine if you want to treat me to a meal. Chen Yuan is still studying and will be taking the university entrance exam in the future. Old Chen is also like that. Your family is supported by you alone, it’s not easy for you either. I’ll help if I can, but I don’t know if I can successfully find him.”
“Chairman Qiao, I’m already very grateful that you’re willing to help. This has always been my own matter. I shouldn’t have troubled you. It’s just that…”
Qiao Weimin knew what she wanted to say. He interrupted her and comforted her with dark eyes. “I heard that after Chen Yuan went back to school, his grades were very good, and he was ranked in the top five. With his grades, he’ll definitely enter university in the future. Don’t think too much about it. He might have just gone out with a friend and lost track of time, or his phone just ran out of battery.”
Aunt Chen nodded, and her anxiety eased a lot.
While they were waiting uneasily, Qiao Weimin’s phone rang.
He looked at the caller ID and said to Aunt Chen, “It’s a call from the police station. There should be news of Chen Yuan.”
Aunt Chen’s eyes suddenly lit up. She clenched her fists tightly as she looked at his phone nervously.
Qiao Weimin picked up the call and considerately turned on the speaker function. His voice was slightly hoarse as he said, “Hello, Superintendent Qin.”
There was the sound of static on the other end of the phone. After a few seconds, someone said, “Chairman Qiao, I found the boy.”
Indeed, there was news of Chen Yuan. Aunt Chen couldn’t hide her excitement and almost asked him where he was.
Qiao Weimin was one step ahead of her and asked in a deep voice, “Thank you, Superintendent Qin. Where is he now? I’ll drive over and pick him up.”
He had even taken out his car keys, but he didn’t expect a shocking reply.
“Chen Yuan is at the police station!”
