Case: Lost Mother
Location: Seoul, Korea
Date: Late 1975
Details: Stella Hut is the daughter of Robert Wortman, an American soldier who was stationed in Korea in the 70s. In 1972, he met and married a Korean woman named Ok-Cha who he nicknamed Sunny. Stella was born on January 6, 1973, and shortly after, they moved to an American Air Force Base in Japan, where Sunny worked at an ice cream parlor. The visits Stella had with her father to there were her only memories of her mother. Robert was eventually transferred back stateside, but before the move, Sunny went to visit her family in Seoul. Neither Robert nor Stella saw her after that. Robert later learned that she did not want to go to America, and most likely decided to stay with her family. Two years later, Stella's grandmother received a phone call from a woman who was calling out "Stella! Stella!" but the caller could not understand English so she hung up. Stella's grandmother now believes it was Sunny. Two years later, Stella received a package from Sunny containing four white dresses and a stuffed dog, and it was postmarked California. Stella believes that her mother is in the United States now and would like to know what happened to her.
Extra Notes: This case first aired on the June 6, 1999 episode.
