The volunteer searches for Sierra LaMar scheduled for Saturday will feature a special child identification program.

The KlaasKids will conduct the program at the Sierra Search Center at Burnett Elementary, 85 Tilton Ave., for all children who show up between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Since 1994, the foundation has fingerprinted and photographed more than 1 million children at no cost to families and without including private and personal information in public databases, according to a press release from the KlaasKids Foundation. Each child who participates Saturday will receive a free DNA collection kit, the press release said.

And efforts to search for Sierra, the missing 15-year-old Morgan Hill resident, or any evidence of her whereabouts will be open to anyone age 18 and older Saturday and Wednesday, July 18. Anyone interested in searching can show up at the school between 8 and 10 a.m.

Sierra has been missing since March 16. Authorities think she was kidnapped.

Deputies from the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office arrested Antolin Garcia Torres, 21, on suspicion of kidnapping and murdering Sierra.

Sierra’s body has not been recovered.

    Dear Mr. Yancey,

    Do you work for the Morgan Hill Times?

    Your comments are so arcane, rediculous, lacking in substance, and plentiful, you must! Or you have no life!

    Have a wonderful day, wherever you are!

    Marc Klaas' work on missing children's cases doesn't make up for his role in getting Three Strikes implemented in this state. He allowed himself to be the poster boy for the prison-industrial complex and advocated for Three Strikes. Almost 20 years later, our prison population continues to explode and we now pay to maintain our prison system than we do on higher education in this state. It's a travesty, and I lay a lot of the blame for it at Klaas' feet.
