LaMar, who disappeared on the morning of March 16, has not been seen or heard from since, KGO in San Francisco reports.

On Sunday, friends and family gathered at a community church in Morgan Hill, a suburb located south of San Jose and about 65 miles from San Francisco, to help maintain awareness of LaMar's disappearance, KGO reports.

The vigil, the fourth of its kind since Sierra went missing, came days after the Polly Klaas Foundation joined in the search. The organization was formed after the 1993 abduction and murder of Polly Klaas, who was also from a San Francisco suburb.

The only signs of Sierra, KGO says, were found on March 23, when investigators came upon a purse that belonged to her which contained items of clothing.
