At its meeting held January 21, 2003, the Board took the following action:
The following statement was entered into the record for Supervisors Molina and Antonovich:"Brenda Sierra, a 15-year-old sophomore at Schurr High School, was last seen on Friday, October 18, 2002 on her way to a friend's house, where she was to receive a ride to school. Brenda never arrived at her friend's house and never got to school. Subsequently, her body was found in San Bernardino County.
