U basketball coach Tom Crean, who co-hosted the event, told supporters they need to do everything they can to help the spierer family. Lauren’s parents, Robert and Charlene, attended the event. Robert said they still believe there is someone in Bloomington who knows where their daughter is.

“We’ve said that throughout our being here in Bloomington during the search,” he said. “We’ve stated that we‘re determined and we‘re going to give everything we have to try to find Lauren.”

Despite the rain, classmates, Bloomington residents and even people from out of town showed up to the “Shine 4 Lauren” event to show their support for the Spierer family.
