All too often we hear of negative stories related to sports athletes, here is one courtesy of the SF 49′ers that we can be proud of …
15 year old Sierra LaMar has been missing since March 16, 2012 when she was last seen at about 6 AM leaving her home to go to school at Sobrato High School. There have been several searches for the missing California teen and although investigators have recovered Sierra LaMar’s cell phone and pink “Juicy” brand bag, there have been few clues as to what happened to her.
Over the weekend, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith joined the 581 volunteers on Saturday to help search for missing Sierra LaMar. KUDOS to Alex Smith for being so selfless and helping search for the missing teen. As Marc Klaas the founder of the KlaasKids Foundation stated, “He wasn’t there for attention. He was there to search. It was about his heart. It’s certainly a touching thing, and it’s a huge thing, too. By showing up, he provided a value that went well beyond his own presence as a searcher.”
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has reportedly joined the search for a missing California girl who disappeared more than two weeks ago on her way to school.
Smith was among 581 volunteers who turned out Saturday to search for 15-year-old Sierra LaMar, of Morgan Hill, Calif., who was last seen March 16, the Contra Costa Times reported.
KUDOS to Alex Smith, you are a class act. As reported at the Mercury News, without any PR pomp and circumstance, without making it all about him, Smith dropped off food and water for the search volunteer before joining the search. NICE!
If anyone has any information regarding the teenager’s whereabouts, please call the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Department at 408-299-2311.
