Search on for missing Clear Lake woman
SANTA MONICA, CA (KTRK) -- Volunteers are back out again this weekend looking for a missing college student from Clear Lake.
Donna Jou vanished back in June. She was last seen with a convicted sex offender in California.
The search is going on throughout the weekend, and volunteers are concentrating on the Santa Monica Mountains.
The search is organized by Jou's father, Reza. He told me over the phone this afternoon that the family is hoping this large scale search will yield something. Jou has been missing since June 23rd, when she was last seen riding away on a motorcycle being driven by a convicted sex offender. Today in California, Joh's friends talked about their determination to find her.
"I am able to help in this way," friend Davina Bloom said. "I was actually out of the country this summer when I got a email from Lisa, telling me that she had some news to tell me. But she did not want to tell me over the phone. And after a few emails she finally told me. And I felt horrible that I wasn't able to be there for her."
Around 100 volunteers participated in the search today. John Burgess, the man Jou was last seen with, is a person of interest but has not been charged.
