    It’s a milestone every family dreads: A month has passed since 15-year old Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar went missing, and today, the Santa Clara County Sheriffs investigators announced what could lead to a break in the case.

    The results are back from the crime lab on evidence discovered during the searches, but they are not yet releasing what those results are.

    Meanwhile, tonight behind the Sierra search center, friends and family released hundreds of pink balloons with messages of hope. Her parents pleaded to not give up searching for the girl.

    “If sierra could be here right now she would say thank you for not giving up on me," said Marlene LaMar.

    Seventeen-year-old Sandina Daly took the lead on organizing the prayer vigil. She said she and fellow teens, barred from taking part in the searches because of their age, were tired of standing by.

    “Write prayers anything we can because we have hope. We’re going to fight and we’re going to bring Sierra home," Sandina said.

    Sheriff's divers are going to expand the search of the Calero Reservoir later this week. Volunteers are continuing their efforts this Wednesday morning.
