Sierra Lamar Clothes found in schoolbag a few miles from home after it is revealed father is registered sex offender

A bag of clothes found on Sunday belongs to the girl who has been missing in California for almost a week, police said.

Pants and a shirt were found in a Juicy bag, which she carried to school, a few miles from Sierra LaMar's home. Relatives confirmed them as belongings of the 15-year-old.

Sgt Jose Cardozza of the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s office in California was unable to say whether they were the same clothes Miss LaMar had been wearing when she was last seen leaving for school on Friday morning.

Sgt Cardozza told ABC News today that police were treating the girl's disappearance as a missing person’s case.

'There is no information leading us to believe she purposely ran away,' he said.

Family and friends held candlelight vigils for the missing high school student this week.

The new information came to light as the father of Sierra Lamar revealed that he is a registered sex offender.

However, Steve Lamar said he loves his daughter and had nothing to do with her disappearance last Friday. Read More
