BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (CBSNewYork) – There may be new clues in the disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.

The Westchester native has been missing for two weeks. Early Friday morning, a maintenance worker checking a trash and recycling room, found several suspicious items hidden behind a dumpster and called police.

“The clothes were not torn, there was no sign of struggle, there was no blood on the clothes that we could see,” said Ernie Reno with the building’s property management company. “And beneath that was a shoebox, a closed shoebox.”

Those items were confiscated but police don’t know if they’re yet connected to the case. It’s just another of the more than 500 tips that have poured in just this week.

Spierer was last seen on June 3 walking towards her apartment after a night out with friends. Volunteers were continuing to search Saturday for any traces that might lead them to the missing 20-year-old.

Saturday night, Lauren’s case will again be featured on America’s Most Wanted in hopes that additional tips on her possible whereabouts will come in to investigators.
