FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Jorge Guerrero, the man investigators think had something to do with the disappearance of 9-year-old Diana Alvarez from San Carlos Park, had a hearing on child porn charges in federal court. 

Many things happened in Federal court Monday, causing the family of Diana Alvarez to walk away feeling like nothing really changed. 

"They still don't have nothing about Diana. So we're still looking for somebody that knows something or anything new" said Uribe Jimenez, Diana's stepfather. 

It's been more than two months since the 9-year-old vanished from her San Carlos home. Investigators say Jorge Guerrero is a suspect in her disappearance. Guerrero has been in Federal custody, charged with possessing and producing child pornography. 

Guerrero's new attorney went to court Monday to ask for a 90 day delay in the case, so he can catch up on what the U.S. Attorney calls a "voluminous" amount of possible evidence. 

But none of the information that needs to be reviewed is giving investigators or Diana's family any new clues to where she may be. 

"I'm still thinking that she's alive. I'm still thinking that. And I'm not going to change my mind. I'm not going to change my mind because we're not finding her yet, so I want to think that she's still alive" said Jimenez. 

The next hearing for Jorge Guerrero will be in November, with a tentative plan to start trial in December.
