The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office Believe Missing 15 Year Old Sierra LaMar of Morgan Hill was Kidnapped
15 year old Sierra LaMar has been missing since March 16, 2012 when she was last seen at 6AM leaving her home in Morgan Hill, CA going to Sobrato High School. She never made it. Since her disappearance police have located her cell phone along the side of the road and her “Juicy” brand pink bag with her clothes in it. In both cases the 15 year old’s belongings were found in the opposite direction of the route that she would have taken to go to school.
There has been no evidence that points to a teen runaway. Instead, Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office is now calling the Sierra LaMar’s disappearance a victim of an abduction. According to accounts, Sgt. Jose Cardoza said detectives came to that conclusion that Sierra LaMar was kidnapped after talking to 100 family members and friends. There is also the premise that she may have initially left home voluntarily with some one, but is now being held against her will.
Volunteers searched Wednesday for a San Francisco-area teenager who disappeared almost two weeks ago and authorities say was likely abducted.
The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office said Tuesday investigators were proceeding on the assumption Sierra LaMar, 15, of Morgan Hill was kidnapped, the San Jose Mercury News reported. Sgt. Jose Cardoza said detectives came to that conclusion after talking to 100 family members and friends.
“There’s nothing indicating she would have run away from the house,” Cardoza told the newspaper. “She had no issues at home and never mentioned she was going to run away. She’s possibly out there as an ‘involuntary taking.’”
