Donna Jou Missing Since June 23, 2007:John Steven Burgess Convicted Sex Offenders Sought (Met on CraigsList.org)
19 year old, San Diego State University student Donna Jou has been missing since June 23, 2007. Donna Jou was last seen at a party held at a Los Angeles home rented by John Steven Burgess. Burgess is a registered sex offender.
Investigators believe Burgess, a registered sex offender, picked Jou up on a motorcycle earlier that day near her Rancho Santa Margarita home, Amormino said.
Jou met the man on the Web site Craigslist.org, Amormino said.
The day after Jou left for the party, her mother received a text message from Jou’s cell phone saying she was coming home, Amormino said.

Police said they are looking for a man named Kyle who is also known as Skinny Puppy. One of Jou’s family members identified him as the man who rode away with Jou on June 23, according to authorities.
The other man they are looking for is John Steven Burgess, a registered sex offender who rented the house where Jou was last seen.
Family members are very worried about Jou’s well-being.
Sex Offender Sought for questioning in the disappearance of Donna Jou
On Friday, Sheriff’s investigators narrowed their search to John Steven Burgess, a convicted sex offender who calls himself SinJin Stevens. He drives around in a blue 1998 Ford Ranger pickup with the vanity plate SINJIN 1 – and a 1981 Yamaha motorcycle with license plate of 14X1224. He disappeared the same day Donna did – and authorities want to talk to him.
“He’s wanted for questioning in the disappearance of Donna Jou,” Sheriff’s spokesman Jim Amormino said.
Burgess, who was convicted of lewd and lascivious acts with a child and of sending harmful material to a minor using the Internet, never registered as a sex offender. A warrant has been issued for his arrest. (OC Register)
