No volunteer search efforts to find missing teen Sierra LaMar are scheduled for Wednesday due to the Independence Day holiday, according to her family.

“We would like our searching family to spend time with their families this coming Fourth of July,” said Marlene LaMar, the Sobrato High School sophomore’s mother.

Searches, coordinated by the missing cheerleader’s family and the KlaasKids Foundation, will resume Saturday, July 7. Volunteers interested in searching can report to Burnett Elementary School, 85 Tilton Ave.

Sierra has been missing since March 16, when authorities think she was kidnapped by Antolin Garcia Torres, 21 of Morgan Hill, while she was walking to her school bus stop near the intersection of Palm and Dougherty avenues in north Morgan Hill.

Garcia Torres was charged in May on suspicion of kidnapping and murdering Sierra, and he remains in custody. He has not yet entered a plea.

Sierra’s remains have not yet been recovered.
