AP-US--Missing Woman-Arrest, 1st Ld-Writethru
This undated photo provided by Boone County Sheriff's Department in Columbia, Mo., shows Joseph Elledge. The University of Missouri student was charged Monday, Oct. 28, 2019, with abuse or neglect of a child as authorities continue searching for his wife, Menqi Ji Elledge, a graduate of the school who is from China. Menqi Ji Elledge was last seen on Oct. 9. The parents of Menqi Ji Elledge and her jailed U.S. husband both want guardianship of the couple's 1-year-old daughter. An attorney for the parents of 28-year-old Mengqi Ji Elledge said a written statement that it is in the "best interest" of the child that they obtain custody, instead of their son-in-law's mother, Jean Elledge. A hearing is set for Monday Nov. 4, 2019. (Boone County Sheriff's Department via AP)
