Search Continues For 19-Year-Old Who Went Missing 6 Months Ago

About 90 volunteers are scouring the Santa Monica Mountains near Malibu, looking for clues to the disappearance of a 19-year-old college student who vanished six months ago while heading to a party hosted by a convicted sex
offender.

Donna Jou was last seen on June 23 on the back of a motorcycle
driven by John Steven Burgess.

The volunteers, including friends and family of Jou, organized the search after receiving a tip that Burgess sometimes frequented the area.

Authorities say Burgess remains a person of interest in the case but has not been charged with a crime. In October, he was sentenced to three years in prison after failing to register as a sex offender.

The search is expected to wrap up Sunday evening.
