The family of missing Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar will mark the one-month anniversary of her disappearance this evening with a community send-off of balloons at a local elementary school.

The teen has been missing since Friday, March 16, when she did not show up to Sobrato High School after leaving home to walk to a nearby bus stop, according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office.

Her family will mark the passage of a month with a balloon prayer release at 6:30 p.m. at Burnett Elementary School.

"This month has truly been a nightmare," Sierra's father Steve LaMar said in a previous interview. "But our volunteers have given us faith, hope and the perseverance to continue in our search efforts. This balloon release will give us a chance for all of us to get together in prayer for Sierra."

Investigators have indicated LaMar was probably abducted. Items belonging to LaMar including her bag and cell phone have been recovered from areas near her home.

The search weekend came up empty, despite more than 600 volunteers helping, passing out fliers and promoting fundraising efforts, according to the KlaasKids Foundation, which is organizing the volunteers.

More than 56 volunteer search teams went out this weekend alone, extending the search radius to 20 miles from Sierra's home, foundation officials said.
