Meanwhile, police resumed a search this morning for LaMar, who was last seen on the morning of March 16. The Sobrato High School sophomore was supposed to catch her school bus that morning, but she never made it to class. Police later found her cellphone and purse with her clothing inside tossed on the side of the road in the opposite direction from her bus stop.
Last week, volunteers came across disturbing evidence that led police to believe she was almost certainly abducted: an empty handcuff box and two used condoms.
