Missing in America: Lauren Spierer, Baby Lisa among thousands

Lauren Spierer

Lauren Spierer was last seen leaving a sports bar at 4:30 a.m. on June 3, 2011, in Bloomington, Ind., where she had just finished her sophomore year at Indiana University. The investigation into the disappearance of the petite fashion major from Greenburgh, N.Y., has taken many turns, yielding thousands of tips and several persons of interest. Little remains known about what might have happened to Spierer. Spierer's parents in December 2012 said they do not believe their daughter's disappearance was a "random abduction." They slammed the male friends of their daughter who, they said, were the last to see her before she vanished. "We have these boys that were there that night that clammed up, shut down, lawyered up," Spierer's father, Robert Spierer, said on "Katie." Though there have been no arrests in the case, Capt. Joe Qualters of the Bloomington Police Department said Jan. 29, 2013, it is still an active investigation, "which implies that we are still following up on leads, which we are doing." The Bloomington Police Department is asking anyone with information about her whereabouts to call 812-339-4477.
