    It was a sad and somber day for the people who have spent the last 365 days searching for a 15 year old girl named Sierra LaMar. (Published Saturday, Mar 16, 2013)

    Sierra was last seen walking to catch a bus to school on March 16, 2012. “It's like she literally vanished,” Sierra’s mother Marlene said.

    San Jose police arrested a suspect in the case. Antolin Garcia Torres is charged with the kidnap and murder of Sierra LaMar. Although her body has never been found, police and prosecutors presume she is dead.

    Sierra’s father Steve LaMar said his family is grateful to the Morgan Hill Unified School District for allowing them to stage volunteer searches out of the same location for the past 15-months.

    "This change of venue will allow us to refocus on finding my daughter and bringing this nightmare to an end," Steve LeMar said.

    There are more searches planned. For more information or see how you can donate supplies call 408.612.6628.
