SANTA ANA Family and friends of Donna Jou the 19-year-old Rancho Santa Margarita student who was last seen on a convicted child molester's motorcycle nearly six weeks ago gathered at the Santa Ana Civic Center Plaza tonight for candlelight vigil to pray for her safe return.
John Steven Burgess, 35, who goes by the name Sinjin Stevens, will stand trial on suspicion of cocaine possession in Jacksonville, Fla. before authorities can extradite him to California to face charges for failing to register as a sex offender.
Investigators predicted Burgess would be back in California by next week, but that process is now expected to take at least several more weeks while Burgess goes to trial on the Florida drug charges.
The delay buys time for investigators from the Orange County Sheriff's Department and the Los Angeles Police Department to see if they can build a case on potential charges related to Jou's disappearance, Sheriff's Department spokesman Jim Amormino said.
