|Sierra LaMar, missing since March 16th.|
Sex offender's in the area where Sierra went missing are being questioned, which leads us to a rather disturbing detail in this case. Her father, Steve LaMar, is a registered sex offender, pleading guilty in 2007, supposedly because he got bad legal advice. I don't know the exact details of that case, but he is currently on probation for committing lewd and lascivious acts with a child under 14 years of age. Police are saying he is not a suspect, and maybe he did have nothing to do with his daughter's disappearance, but I still find it suspicious that her phone was found not far from home and dad has a case of kiddie boppin' in his recent past. His friends and family are downplaying this tidbit of information, saying it's not relevant and distracts from the search for Sierra. Maybe, maybe not, but it probably shouldn't be swept under the carpet and dismissed so easily.
It's possible this could be a case of a girl taking off, but Sierra, according to friends and family, doesn't have a history of running away. It's seems likelier that she was abducted, but whether it was by a stranger or someone she knew, no one knows yet. The fact that her phone was found doesn't bode well for this ending with a happy reunion. What teen, or adult for that matter, would just dump their phone somewhere? Then for it to found so close to home. If my phone isn't on a charger, it's within arms reach or already in my hand, and from what we know about teens and phones, they don't give them up willingly. I'll refer you to the case of the teen girl that shot her dad with an arrow because he took her cell phone as an example.
I hope for the best in this case. There are too many similar tales of girls gone missing that don't end well, my inner pessimist doesn't like for me to get my hopes up, but I'd like to see that downer bitch pessimism proven wrong this time. I want this girl to be found alive and well. So let's keep our eyes peeled for Sierra LaMar and maybe we can bring this girl home, safe and sound.
