Investigators have confirmed this morning's distressing news that volunteers searching for 15-year-old Sierra LaMar found a empty handcuff box and used condoms near the girl's home in Morgan Hill.

Volunteers with the KlaasKids Foundation discovered the items at the end of Palm Avenue, which is the route LaMar takes to get to the school bus that she she was supposed to catch the morning she was last seen. Police told NBC that the area is also known as a popular spot where teens like to congregate.

Authorities collected the evidence and have sent it off to the crime lab for DNA analysis.

LaMar, a Sobrato High School sophomore, was last seen by her mother on March 16 at about 6 a.m. She was supposed to catch the school bus that morning, but LaMar never made it to class. Her cellphone and purse with her clothing neatly folded inside were found a few days later, on the side of the road in the opposite direction of the bus stop.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
