MORGAN HILL (KRON)--Sheriff's divers are out searching the Chesbro reservoir for clues into the disappearance of Morgan Hill teen Sierra Lamar who has now been missing for nearly four weeks.

Thursday's searches come after the sheriff's office announced that investigators were reviewing images taken earlier from a sonar device of the Chesbro and Uvas reservoirs, both of which are close to Sierra's home. Authorities said Wednesday that divers would be out combing the reservoirs to investigate suspicious objects, if any, detected by the sonar device. According to the Sheriff's Office, deputies on motor bikes will also be out this week to canvass remote areas to check for potential crime scenes and evidence.

Meanwhile, Sierra's family announced Wednesday the creation of an official website dedicated to the search and safe  return of the teen who disappeared on March 16.
     
The webpage, www.FindSierraLaMar.com, will post new information,  search details and resources as they become available, according to the  KlaasKids Foundation, which provides search-and-rescue services for families of missing people.
     
Friends, family and members of the community can leave messages on  the site, which also hosts blog updates from Sierra's family members.
     
Police say Sierra went missing nearly a month ago, as she walked to a bus stop to go to school. Since her disappearance, volunteers and authorities have conducted extensive searches of the area surrounding Sierra's home. 

Over the weekend, the Lamar family announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to Sierra's safe return. The KlaasKids Foundation says it plans to conduct more volunteer searches for Sierra on Saturday and Sunday. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old and register with photo  ID at the search center at Burnett Elementary School at 85 Tilton Road in  Morgan Hill.
