    CA - Sierra LaMar, 15, Santa Clara County, 16 March 2012 - # 8



    Sierra LaMar, 15, has been missing since Friday, March 16. She left home early that morning to walk to her bus stop for school. Her cell phone was found along a local roadway shortly after, and her purse/bag was also found later.

    The parents and the mother's boyfriend have been cleared. Sleuthing them and speculating about their involvement is off limits.
    No arguing, and be respectful of other posters. One opinion is no more valuable than another, and we're each entitled to our own.
    Posting links to Twitter accounts and FB pages of individuals other than the victim (and suspect if one is eventually named) is against the rules. Keep in mind that many of Sierra's friends are minors.

    Search Moves to Gilroy and San Martin

    GILROY, Calif. -
    In the search for Sierra Lamar, Santa Clara County Sheriff's deputies are pulling out of Morgan Hill and going to Gilroy and San Martin, where they think her body may have been dumped or hidden.

    This must mean LE has a lot more information than we think they have. Who lives in Gilroy?

    The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office has received more than 1,200 tips on the case but have been unable to find any clues into the disappearance of the 15-year-old, who was presumed kidnapped on March 16. Most recently, over the weekend deputies handed out Spanish-language fliers and talked to people at a faith-based event in Morgan Hill.

    Like in the stormwater pond the purse was found near. If you wanted them to be found, you'd do what the perp did. If you don't want them found, you would submerge it all in that pond (since you were going there anyway). The phone would almost certainly cease to function and the brown purse would be nearly invisible in there.

    I think the phone was thrown out right away. The bag was thrown out later, as the perp did not plan to go there when s/he dumped the phone. Obviously (as anyone who has ever gotten a phone wet knows) dropping the phone in the pond would have killed it once and for all. If you planned to go to the pond, it would make sense to dispose of the phone there. If you did not plan to go there until much later, or if this was a spontaneous abduction, you'd do what the perp did. MOO.
    Make a difference NOW! Read about convicted pedophile Donald Scott Brunstetter in the CAPER - Citizens Against Pedophile's Early Release Forum (http://www.websleuths.com/forums/for...ht-on-Children) and tune into Tricia's True Crime Radio Thursday at 8PM EDT.
    Visit http://noparole4pedophile.weebly.com/ for background on the case, including photos, and supporting documents (including his handwritten confession, penned after he denied the accusations, entered a "Not Guilty" plea, put my daughter and me through an emotionally exhausting trial, and was convicted).
    He is scheduled to meet with the Parole Board on July 30, 2015. PLEASE take a few minutes to write to the Parole Board, asking them not to release him early. Address your emails to Victim Advocate Ruth Ogle (rogle@dpscs.state.md.us) or to David Blumberg (dblumberg@dpscs.state.md.us) of the Maryland Parole Commission.
    He destroyed the life of a beautiful 8 year old girl for his own perverted purposes, and poses an ongoing threat if/when he is released.


    My posts are strictly MY opinion under circumstances when many points of view need to be considered. I apologize in advance to anyone whose potential involvement is contemplated in error, or who may be offended because I do not see eye to eye with them on all matters related to this case. I hope our differences can be set aside as we unite in the search for this victim or the perpetrator of this crime. Your opinions and insights are just as valuable as mine.

    Investigators have confirmed that nothing so far on Sierra’s social media accounts indicates she planned to run away even for a few hours, and there is no evidence she had a troubled life at home or school.
    And while police don’t think social media played a role in Sierra’s disappearance, Glass isn’t entirely convinced. Someone who is not even a Facebook friend or Twitter or Tumblr follower of Sierra’s might have spent some time watching her online activity or digitally “stalking” her before contacting her. For example, the kidnapper might have learned from this activity that Sierra was a cheerleader and fashioned a “fantasy” about her, Glass said.
    “They might have picked out that cheerleader type that they could never get when they were in high school,” Glass said.
    Sierra’s abduction is a “highly solvable” crime, due to the same likely communication leakage, Van Zandt concludes. The kidnapper or kidnappers will be following the story closely in the news, or someone will notice or remember that they didn’t show up, or showed up late for work March 16. Especially if there is more than one kidnapper, it is unlikely even the suspects will be able to stay quiet about it forever.
    “They’ll say something when they’re drinking or doing drugs with other people,” Van Zandt said. “They won’t be able to keep their mouth shut.”

    This must mean LE has a lot more information than we think they have. Who lives in Gilroy?
    This was an article from April 4th. The search has already happened and I wonder if they will continue to search out in that area.

    I wonder if they have something specific to know that they think her body may have been dumped or hidden? Did HRD dogs hit on something? Her clothing in the bag perhaps? Or something else? Or are they just thinking she may not be alive because of statistics.

    From that same article I find this interesting too:

    Detectives said Sierra did not runaway from home and she was abducted by someone who knew the Morgan Hill area well.
    LE must know something.

    a little more info on the gilroy search last week (thursday)

    On Thursday, about 20 members of the sheriff’s search-and-rescue teams searched in San Martin and Gilroy for Sierra or her remains – no one knows if she is dead or alive – and any other evidence that might lead to her whereabouts.
    It was the farthest south the search had expanded since Sierra was reported missing March 16. Detectives think Sierra was kidnapped or picked up just outside her home in north Morgan Hill, near the intersection of Palm and Dougherty avenues. Previous searches have focused on a progressively expanding radius around the home.

    This was an article from last week. I think the LE were just expanding the serach out from the 12 mile radius they had been doing.

    Sierra’s Family, The KlaasKids Foundation, Child Quest International, and The Laura Recovery Center would like to thank everyone who has volunteered so far. These agencies will continue to assist law enforcement and the LaMar family with future searches and recovery efforts.

    Does anyone know if LE has searched any of the landfills in or near Morgan Hill?

    A change of clothes to school, including underwear? Was this normal? If she were going to cut school she would have still taken her books. Most teens have their entire lives played out on social media sites. If she were meeting someone to cut school it would be somewhere online on her phone etc.

    This was either someone who she planned to meet and the person who came to pick her up was not who she thought..this person tossed her items all over the place to throw everyone off his trail.

    Or her change of clothes is not related maybe she was going to ask to sleep at a friends house after school? Someone knew she would be taking the bus this is not a random act. Mo
