Water Searches for Sierra LaMar to Pick Up Again Next Week

Sheriff's dive team was unable to search two bodies of water planned for this week.

The Santa Clara County Sheriff's dive teams spent the week searching for signs of missing Morgan Hill teen but were unable to get to two of the reservoirs they planned on searching, according to Sgt. Jose Cardoza of the Sheriff's Office. 

They will resume searches at these two bodies of water early in the week of May 7.

"In the beginning of the week, the teams searched Parkway Lakes, Anderson and Coyote reservoirs," Cardoza said. "They were unable to get to Almaden and Guadalupe reservoirs, so they'll be resuming with them early next week."

Cardoza said that divers were deployed after side scan sonar picked up "areas of concern" in the three waterways that were searched, but nothing related to LaMar's disappearance was discovered.

After waterway searches are completed next week, Cardoza said investigators will reconvene and determine how to proceed with searches, including deciding where to search next.

I had a vision about sierra and thought I'd pass it on. I looked up on a map and Lompico Road keeps popping up, in Felton. Could it be possible that this is where she was taken to? A sick sico person would head to the woods so he wouldn't be caught. I think people are looking in the wrong place for her. It seams to follow the evidence that was found. Please check it out. Thanks! djcam
