Volunteer searches for Sierra Lamar

Submitted By Klaaskids

Sierra LaMar was walking to catch a school bus in Morgan Hill, CA on March 16, 2012 when she disappeared. "It's like she literally vanished," said Sierra's mother Marlene LaMar.

By 12 p.m. on Tuesday, March 27, 2012, 583 volunteers registered to search for Sierra LaMar. Teams were dispatched throughout the day. Many volunteers were deployed in the morning and afternoon.

Individuals who registered to search on Tuesday will be expedited on subsequent search efforts. They will not have to re-register or be re-trained. However, we encourage community members who have not yet volunteered to search to join in this massive effort. Individuals who would like to participate in the search for Sierra should check in between the hours of 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. through Sunday, April 1st.

The Find Sierra Search Center is located at Burnett Elementary School at 85 Tilton Road in Morgan Hill, CA. Volunteers must be at least 18 years of age and bring photo identification. "Dress appropriately for the weather, wear long pants and sturdy, covered toe shoes. We need people who can do foot searches as well as individuals who are willing to work in the search center. We are also looking for donations of bottled water, food and office supplies.

Teenagers are welcome to join the community wide effort. Although nobody under 18-years-old will be allowed to join search teams, a Teen Brigade is being organized for the weekend. We need youth who are willing to work and assist in Sierra's recovery.

On behalf of Sierra's family, the KlaasKids Foundation, the Laura Recovery Center and Child Quest International we would like to thank the community for their unprecedented weekday support.

For more information about the search or information on how you can donate supplies, volunteers can call Tricia Griffiths at (801) 560-1933, or email
