The first morning roundup of 49ers news for the month of April features the standup community service performed over the weekend by 49ers quarterback Alex Smith.
With search efforts for missing Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar continuing over the weekend, Smith volunteered his services to help in the search party.
A volunteer organizer confirmed Smith’s presence among a group of 700 volunteers to The Contra Costa Times. According to the report, Smith also dropped off food and water to volunteers before assisting in the search.
Smith did not comment on his participation, but it’s worth noting that the quarterback’s foundation focuses its work on working with foster teens. The ongoing situation in nearby Morgan Hill most certainly struck a chord with Smith.
Anyone with information on Miller’s disappearance is encouraged to call (408) 808-4500 or call the anonymous tip line at (408) 808-4431. Additionally, tips can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
