Sedan in Northern California missing teen case

Authorities say they're looking for a vehicle that they believe is connected to the abduction of a Northern California teenager who's been missing for nearly two months.

The Santa Clara County Sheriff's Office on Monday released a photo of a 1990s red Volkwagen Jetta that's similar to a car linked to the disappearance of 15-year-old Sierra LaMar. Investigators believe Sierra was kidnapped March 16 while walking to a bus stop near her Morgan Hill home.

Sheriff's Sgt. Jose Cardoza says the red sedan being sought has a black hood.

Meanwhile, crime lab technicians continue to analyze possible evidence found during searches for Sierra.

Cardoza says they've determined a handcuff box and used condoms found within a mile-and-a-half of her home are not associated with the case.
