A woman's skeleton found near the University of Hong Kong yesterday raised suspicions that it could be the remains of Grace Huang, wife of former university vice-chancellor Professor Rayson Huang Li-sung.

But police said nothing was found to establish identity immediately and investigations were continuing. Two surveyors working on a slope opposite the university's Chow Yei Ching Building in Pokfulam found the skeleton, clad in tattered clothes, hanging from a tree on a concealed slope.

Hong Kong Island Regional Crime Unit officers were unable to contact Professor Huang last night as he was believed to be out of Hong Kong.

His wife, aged 74, disappeared on March 6 while she and her husband were on their way to a restaurant for lunch from Robert Black College in University Drive.

Professor Huang offered a reward of $50,000 for anyone finding his wife.
