San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has joined in on a search for missing California teenager, Sierra Lamar, according to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News. Smith received props for his willingness to volunteer in the search for LaMar and the article also mentions how an adult over the age of 18 can join in on the search.
The Huffington Post has more background information on LaMar’s disappearance. As of now LaMar has been missing for over two weeks and is believed to have been abducted while on her way to catch the school bus. A day after her disappearance the police discovered her cell phone that appeared to have been thrown from a vehicle. Also mentioned in the article is that the police are working on the theory that this is “an involuntary missing person case. Under that umbrella is the theory that she is the victim of a kidnapping, abduction or voluntarily went missing and then at some point thereafter came into contact with someone and as a result is now being held against her will.” Which is a quote from Sgt. Jose Cardoza.
What is even worse about the case is that “police have no suspects and no persons of interest at this time.”
For Smith it is great that he took the time to assist with the search for LaMar and the same can be said for the other volunteers who spent their day searching. More importantly though is to keep LaMar in thought and in prayers, and hope that she is found safe.
