The search continues this morning for a missing Morgan Hill teenager, amid new reports of a possible sighting in Watsonville.

The Santa Cruz Sentinel reports, a 911 caller reported seeing a teenaged girl hitchhiking on Holoran Road in Watsonville on Sunday.

The caller apparently told the dispatcher the girl looked similar to 15-year-old Sierra Lamar, who has been missing 10 days.

Deputies tell the Sentinel, the caller said the girl had more than one backpack with her when she got into a black truck near East Lake Avenue.

Witnesses tell deputies the truck is a "lifted" pickup with a work rack, driven by a man in his 20's, with shoulder length blond hair.

Deputies say officers searched the area and sent out an alert, but did not find the truck.

The truck was last seen heading toward Airport Boulevard, at around 4:00 Sunday afternoon.
