Jou's Mom Holds On To Hope That Daughter is Alive
LOS ANGELES, Sept. 29, 2007 (KABC) -- The mother of a missing San Diego State University student is making a plea for help finding her daughter.
This comes as a suspect in the case returned to Southern California in handcuffs.
John Steven Burgess arrived at LAX Friday night.
He was extradited from Florida after bail agents revoked his bond.
Burgess has been named a suspect in the June disappearance of 19-year-old Donna Jou, but he has not been charged.
Jou's mother says she hasn't given up hope that her daughter is alive.
"I have to be strong for my daughter I cannot give up hope and faith in God ... that my daughter is alive, okay, and she's gonna be home," Nili Jou, Donna's mother, said.
Burgess is a convicted sex offender. He's set to have a pre-trial hearing next month for failing to register as a sex offender. In a handwritten letter, Jou's mother called on Burgess to tell what he knows about her missing daughter. So far, he has refused to talk to investigators.
