Sierra LaMar: Police Believe Missing Teen Knew Her Kidnapper
Investigators, who have searched all nearby bodies of water, said they do not believe her kidnapper planned this in advance; this seems to have been a crime of opportunity, NBC reports.
Police have searched both LaMar's cellphone, which was found on the side of the road, and her laptop, but there was no indication that the Sobrato High School cheerleader had been engaged in any kind of online relationship with someone she did not know.
Meanwhile, hundreds of volunteers lined up again this morning to comb the rural area near LaMar's home. She was last seen by her mother on March 16 at about 6 a.m. She was supposed to catch the school bus that morning, but LaMar never made it to class. Her cellphone and purse with her clothing inside were found a few days later, on the side of the road in the opposite direction of the bus stop.
