Article Photos: Daughter fights for return of dad trapped in China 17/27

In this Monday, March 11, 2012 photo, Victoria Hu, 20, right, and her brother Richard talk about their father at their house in Rancho Palos Verdes, Calif. On Thanksgiving weekend in 2008, Victoria, then 16, awaited her workaholic father's return from a business trip to China. Then her mother got word of a delay, though she insisted he'd be home by Christmas. In time, she learned the truth: Her father, a Chinese-American engineer, had been arrested on charges of stealing Chinese state secrets. Even though authorities dropped all charges, he still isn't home because of a bizarre set of legal circumstances that prohibit him from leaving China. (AP Photo/Chris Carlson)
