LINCOLN -- The University of Nebraska says a professor missing in China has called his family and plans return to US. David Wilson, the university's international affairs officer, announced Wednesday that assistant business professor Weixing Li called his family to say he will return to the U.S. as soon as flight arrangements can be made. Wilson says he had no further details. On Monday, university spokeswoman Kelly Bartling acknowledged administrators were trying to find Li. She says several students who joined him on a study-abroad trip grew concerned last week when Li stopped returning their emails.
