Lauren Spierer went missing June 3 in Bloomington, Ind.

The Bloomington Police Department says it is still receiving two to three credible tips regarding Lauren Spierer’s disappearance nearly a year after the Indiana University student went missing.

Spierer, who was 20 at the time of her disappearance on June 3, 2011, was last seen at the intersection of 11th street and College Avenue, walking home alone toward Smallwood Plaza after a night of partying at Kilroy’s Sports Bar and a few downtown apartments.

“The case of Lauren’s disappearance is still considered to be a very active investigation,” Captain Joe Qualters said in a statement. “Detectives remain assigned to the case with it being classified a ‘priority’ case for them as it has since Lauren was reported missing.”

The BPD has made several inquiries into cases in other jurisdictions, including ten unidentified bodies in the last year. The department says hundreds of primary and secondary interviews have been conducted and investigators “continue to make progress on many fronts.”

Tips and information can be provided by calling the Bloomington Police Department at 812-339-4477 or by email at policetips@bloomington.in.gov
