Parents Of Missing College Student Lauren Spierer Unveil New Poster, Message

BLOOMINGTON, IN (CBSNewYork/AP) – Lauren Spierer’s parents have once again stepped up their search for their missing daughter.

Their heartfelt appeal for information appeared on the website dedicated to the search,

Spierer, originally from Westchester, disappeared on June 3rd after a night out with friends. A recent report suggested she was so incapacitated when she disappeared she could hardly stand. Video evidence showed Spierer stumbling out of an elevator, falling against a wall and being helped to her feet by a friend on the night she disappeared.

“There is no reason to think the people Lauren was last with, wouldn’t do everything in their power to help us find her,” Spierer’s parents write in their new blog post. “But, alas, there is deafening silence. That silence compounds our frustration, our desperation and our grief in not having found Lauren. It threatens to be our undoing but make no mistake, we will never give up. ”

A company that runs a western Indiana landfill recently said it was cooperating with the FBI, who wanted to conduct a search there.

Meanwhile, the heartbreak and exasperation of the fruitless search is evident in the post by Charlene and Rob Spierer.

“It is impossible to explain, as we continue to search for Lauren, what the experience of having a missing child is like. There is no explanation for why this has happened. Imagine learning one of the most important people in your world has disappeared and there is not enough information available from friends and acquaintances to find them,” they wrote.

They also released a new poster of the missing girl, which shows her smiling, with sunglasses perched on the top of her head. Spierer is 4’11”, 95 pounds, has blonde hair and blue eyes. She was last seen wearing black pants and a white top.

    I have thought from the very beginning Lauren was stranger abducted. She was in a vulnerable state and the perp(s) took advantage of the situation. I feel she was targeted and watched, probably someone in the bar watching her and waiting for the right time to take her. This has all the earmarks of an abduction. I don’t think these kids have a clue what happened to Lauren.

    It hurts me so deeply to know the ache in the heart of these parents. I still believe that her friends know something and that there is a cover up. These people have to live with themselves everyday. I don’t know how the boys go on with their lives knowing that this evil act is still hanging around the. Then again I hope they cannot go on peacefully. Fess up ..You know something!

    seriously, Catherine.

    Stories like this of missing children (she is someone’s child) are devastating. I hope Lauren’s parents can find her and have some closure. But Catherine’s comment is off the deep end. It almost makes me think she knows something.

    Stop… Ur just as creepy with all your absurd “MAN” posts.

    Take a Xanax or Vicodin and relax

    He needs to turn himself in to the FBI before I find him. I will have my250 pound bodyguard hold him down while I give him what he deserves for hurting this
    wonderful person. And, the drug OD story was likely made up by the creepy blogger himself.

    Someone knows. Someone saw something that seemed trivial. Sounds like a rouge cop,

    That smile on Lauren’s face is very real. She even smiled a lot when not posing for a picture. One could not find a more caring or loving person on this Earth. She was a friend to my sister and me. I can’t believe she just vanished without a trace.
    This took some truly evil plotting and planning by a MAN or MEN.
    It is possible this is linked to the murder of a woman in Bloomington, Indiana in September and the attempted strangulation of a Bloomington woman a few Sundays ago.
    It could also be connected with the attack on Correy Rossman. I believe these guys may have been waiting to ambush Lauren on her way home. But, this was evil. Truly evil! Our world is missing a deep thinker who was very kind.
    I miss you Lauren! May God let you reach us somehow and let us know
    who did this and where you are. I pray for you every night. We want you back
    and we want the name of the MAN who did this. Lauren was so trusting.
    She never would have thought an evil MAN was plotting to hurt her.

    • Dan M.

      We all hurt in a small way with the Spierer family. Our prayers continue to be with you all.
      All this being said, I would like to know why our young adults find so much value in drinking and hurting themselves. We as a nation have much to change. Lauren would prabably not be missing.

      I wish we could do more for the family at this time.
