Officials Unable to Locate Former 'Survivor' Producer for Questioning

Mexican officials investigating the murder of former "Survivor" producer Bruce Beresford-Redman's wife, Monica Burgos, say they are unable to find Redman for further questioning.

Bruce and Monica Beresford-Redman

The Emmy-nominated producer, was ordered to remain in Cancun while they investigated the death of his wife. Burgos was found in a sewer tank last month, 80 yards from the Moon Palace resort, where she and her husband were vacationing with their two small children.

The two were reportedly in Cancun on a "reconciliation vacation." Burgos had recently discovered her husband was cheating on her, according the slain woman's sister, and Burgos had cleaned out their shared bank account. Other friends of the family say their union had been rocky for quite some time.
 

In a statement released to "Extra" the Burgos family is speaking out about their frustration with the investigation:

"For over a month, we have patiently waited for the Mexican authorities to take some action with respect to their "only suspect." We have now learned that he is missing. Now, more that ever, we beg of the Mexican authorities to accept the assistance that has been offered to them by the FBI. Monica Burgos is an American citizen who was murdered over one month ago in Mexico and she deserves justice. If Bruce Beresford-Redman has nothing to do with her murder, why would he be running?" 

UPDATE: Bruce Beresford-Redman has returned to Los Angeles, his attorney Richard Hirsch told CNN. "He has been informed that he has no legal obligation to remain in Mexico pending the investigation," Hirsch said. Noting Redman has not been charged with any crime.
