Search Continues for Missing Sierra Lamar … Teen’s Father is a Registered Sex Offender, But Not Considered a Suspect
The search continues for missing 15 year old Sierra Lamar according to the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office. Sierra Lamar has been missing since March 16, 2012 when she failed to show up for school. Authorities have been interviewing and questioning the too numerous registered sex offenders in the Morgan Hill, CA area. That has brought about a rather peculiar situation. The father of missing Sierra Lamar, Steve Wayne Lamar, is a registered sex offender. He was convicted of lewd or lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14. Hmm. However, the Sheriff’s office is saying that he is not a suspect and is cooperating.
Tuesday, the sheriff’s Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Task Force was still in the process of contacting the 267 registered sex offenders in Morgan Hill, San Martin and Gilroy to confirm their whereabouts at the time Sierra disappeared, Sgt. Jose Cardoza said.
The Sheriff’s Office also confirmed Tuesday that Sierra’s father, Steve Wayne Lamar, of Fremont, is a registered sex offender but is not a person of interest in his daughter’s disappearance. Lamar has “been fully cooperative since the beginning of the investigation,” Cardoza said.
Just a tad bit bizarre that the dad would be a registered sex offender and your 15 year old daughter goes missing.
“It’s frustrating from our standpoint that we haven’t found any clues,” Cardoza said at the press conference.
LaMar’s mother said the teen usually wakes up about 6 a.m., and has been missing since about 7:15 a.m. Friday. Her last “tweet” on her Twitter account was posted at 6:29 a.m. from a computer that day.
LaMar moved to Morgan Hill with her mother Marlene and mother’s boyfriend, Rick, about five months ago. On Monday afternoon, Marlene LaMar stood by with Sierra’s father, Steve, cousins Michelle Allee and Keith LaMar and Sierra’s sister Danielle.
