Authorities say they have arrested a man in the disappearance of a Northern California teenager more than two months ago.

Santa Clara County Sheriff's identified the suspect as 21-year-old Antolin Garcia-Torres. He was arrested late Monday at a Safeway store in Morgan Hill, and authorities say he is responsible for 15-year-old Sierra LaMar's disappearance.

Sierra hasn't been seen or heard from since she left her home in Morgan Hill to go to school on the morning of March 16. Authorities believe she was kidnapped while walking to a school bus stop.

Volunteers and sheriff's officials have continued searches of the fields and open spaces near and around Morgan Hill, as well as reservoirs in the area.

Garcia-Torres was arrested on suspicion of murder and kidnapping. Additional information was not immediately available.
