Police said “there are no signs of foul play” in connection with his disappearance, and believe there is no threat to the UT-Dallas campus.

However, they are "deeply concerned about his whereabouts,” UT-Dallas Police Lieutenant Adam Perry said, according to CBS affiliate KTVT.

Ai Ping Zhou, Li’s mother, said she last spoke with her son on Feb. 22, according to ABC affiliate WFAA. The Houston woman tried contacting him on Saturday, but claimed the college sophomore did not respond or open her messages.

Friends did not find Li in his room when asked them to check on him, Zhou said.

His wallet was not found in his room after campus police gained entry, however, Li’s mother told KTVT that her son’s cell phone, backpack and laptop were still in his room.
