The San Jose Mercury News is reporting that Congressman Jerry McNerney will be joining volunteers today in Morgan Hill in the search for missing teenager Sierra LaMar. The teen went missing on March 16 when she left for school from her Morgan Hill home and hasn’t been seen since.
“When things like this happen in the community he acts,” McNerney’s office spokeswoman Lauren Smith said.
Kudos to Mr. McNerney for joining the search. A few weeks back it was reported 49ers quarterback Alex Smith also joined the search efforts.
