    The community of Morgan Hill continues to search for the missing teen, Sierra LaMar.

    There's no indication that the community of Morgan Hill is giving up on their search for Sierra LaMar.

    On Wednesday the Klaaskids Foundation launched another volunteer search for the 15-year-old girl who disappeared before heading off to Sobrato High three Fridays ago.

    Since then, more than 3,000 volunteers have helped law enforcement agencies search several miles around her home.

    One of the 200 people who showed up to help on this day was Pat Boyd. His daughter Christie Wilson was murdered 6 1/2 years ago. Police found the killer, who has since been convicted, but they never found his little girl's body. Boyd said what happened to him helps motivate him to help other parents.

    One of the tasks KlaasKids volunteers were asked to do Wednesday included a door-to-door visit to a South San Jose neighborhood near Martin Murphy Middle School.

    The volunteers were told to ask people there if they have noticed anyone who has not been seen in awhile. They were also told to ask if their daughter went missing, who would they want law enforcement to question first in the neighborhood.

    Police said the line of questioning would help police narrow their focus of who to talk to in a given area.

    Friends and neighbors of Sierra LaMar have also scrounged together $10,000 dollars for a reward leading to information about LaMar's whereabouts.

    Investigators have received more than 1,200 tips, but still don't have a much better idea of what happened to her. They believe she was most likely abducted, but don't know who was involved or where she ended up.

    The public can register for the volunteer search between 8 a.m. and 1 p.m at Burnett Elementary at 85 Tilton Ave. Searchers must be 18 years old. The Klaaskids Foundation will also conduct searches this Saturday and Sunday.

    Sierra Lamar disappeared near her home three weeks ago. Since then volunteers have been holding search parties for the teenager every Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday.

    Klaaskids are also asking for donations of the following office supplies:

    •     Gift cards to Staples or Safeway 
    •     Tecnu or similar poison oak lotion
    •     Bug spray
    •     Ink is needed for the following printers:  HP 6000 printer, needs HP 920 color and black ink
          HP F4580 printer, needs HP 60 color and black ink
          Lexmark printer, needs color 33 and black 32
