According to The Herald Sun, she had $ 2,000 with her when she disappeared.
The police said they were concerned about their wellbeing since they knew no one in Australia.
North West Metro Command policeman Andrew Wenhlowskyj said there was no evidence that Ms. Yaping was planning to be missing.
The Chinese consulate is working with the police to gain access to Ms. Yaping's bank accounts because the local police cannot view them without permission.
Ms. Yaping's passports were also marked.
She flew to Sydney on December 21 before traveling to Melbourne the next day to meet with the tour group.
Her roommate on the bus tour reported her missing when she never came back to pick up her things at the Quality Hotel (inventory).
Her husband from southwestern China helped the consulate disappear with his wife.
Ms. Yaping was described with shoulder-length black hair and brown eyes.
It is 162 cm tall and medium in size.
The hotel where Ms. Yaping stayed is on the same street as Princes Park, where Jaymes Todd raped and murdered 22-year-old comedian Eurydice Dixon in 2018.
