Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Detectives are continuing their interviews with friends and classmates of missing Sierra Lamar.
Lamar, 15, was last seen at about 6 a.m. Friday when she left her home in unincorporated Morgan Hill to head for school. She never made it to her classes.
Investigators are interviewing students at both Sobrato High School in Morgan Hill and Washington High School in Fremont. So far, more than 50 students have been interviewed.
Authorities say forensic examinations of Lamar’s cell phone and computer have not revealed any information beneficial to their investigation. Latent print examinations have also been conducted on them, but have not turned up any leads. The cell phone is being transferred to the Santa Clara County Crime Lab for further testing.
The Sheriff’s office Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Team (SAFE) Task Force is also continuing their efforts by contacting all known sex offenders in the South County area. So far, they have contacted all registrants within a 10 mile radius of Lamar’s mother’s Morgan Hill home and are now focusing their efforts outside that radius.
Lamar’s father, a registered sex offender himself, is not considered a person of interest in the case and has been cooperating fully in the investigation, authorities said.
So far, investigators have interviewed more than 100 people and have received more than 150 tips in connection with the case.
