The last scheduled press conference for the Lauren Spierer case was today, but her parents and investigators are not giving up.
1,500 tips, 300 hours of video footage, 175 items of evidence and Bloomington Police Captain Joe Qualters says they know as much now as they did three weeks ago today when Lauren Spierer was reported missing.
“There may be someone out there that has a very important piece of information that for some reason they are choosing not to get to us despite the fact that we’ve opened the door in a variety of ways,” Qualters said.
Lauren’s mom choked with emotion, offered another plea for help.
“Lauren I miss everything about you, there’s not one thing on any given day that I don’t miss about you. We’re really ready to go home, we just need Lauren, we need our daughter,” Spierer said.
Saturday is “Find Lauren Day” and the Spierer’s hope volunteers will help canvass the area in the search for their daughter. About 20 Indiana National Guard reserve members will be on hand to assist. Volunteers will gather at 8 a.m. at McNutt Quad to organize the mass search effort.
