Bloomington Police Department officials say they have received 3,060 tips in the case of Lauren Spierer, the Indiana University student who disappeared in June 3, 2011.
Police say 166 of those tips were provided in 2013. A statement released in advance of the two year anniversary of Spierer’s disappearance did not elaborate on information provided in the tips.
“Despite being nearly two years into this investigation, information continues to come in regarding Lauren’s case and investigators diligently pursue the information with the same level of commitment as in the beginning,” the statement reads.
Since Spierer’s disappearance there have been multiple occasions where police have investigated the finding of human remains. Ultimately none of those cases has been connected to Spierer.
Lauren’s parents have said they don’t believe their daughter is still alive.
They have hired a private investigator and they maintain a blog where they actively try to engage the community in the search for their missing daughter.
