MORGAN HILL, CA - Police have located the cell phone belonging to Sierra Lamar, the 15-year-old who went missing after walking to her bus stop last Friday morning.
Lamar was first reported missing by her family when she failed return home from school and then later found to have never attended school that day at all. The bus driver stated they never saw Lamar that morning.
That weekend, police search nearby creek beds and fields. Police dogs were also used in an attempt to track Lamar’s movements that morning, but they lost her scent at her driveway.
On Sunday, police found her cell phone in a field a few miles from her home by tracking its electronic ping. They are now looking at the phone’s contents as well as her laptop. Her Twitter and Facebook accounts have not been used since the day she went missing.
On Tuesday, police went door to door in Lamar’s neighborhood and are checking up on 276 registered offenders in the area. Her father, Steve Lamar, has a sex crime conviction but been cleared in his daughter’s disappearance.
Police have the case listed as a missing person, not an abduction, but her sister says there’s no way her sister ran away.
“She’s always in contact with family and friends. She wouldn’t leave everyone out of the loop,” Danielle Lamar said.
Sierra Lamar is described as 5-feet, 2 inches tall, with brown hair. She was last seen carrying a pink and black purse.

Gorgeous girl. Thank God my teen daughter was a late-bloomer and looked like this at 15-years-old. Never worried much about her being abducted, but I did spend an awful lot of time helping her remove ear tags.Tags: California, Crime, Missing Person, Sierra Lamar
