Lauren Spierer went missing June 3, 2011.

It has been two years since Bloomington Police began their investigation into the disappearance of then then-IU sophomore Lauren Spierer.

In a press release, Bloomington authorities say they are just as dedicated to the case as they were in 2011.

The Bloomington fire Department’s Steve Coover says he believes there are people with more information than they have shared the last 24 months.

“Somebody knows something,” Coover says. “Just the littlest of things.  Just step forward and say something.  That’s all they need.  Get some people some closure.”

As of last week, the police had received more than 3,000 tips in the case, including 166 so far this year. Authorities are releasing no new information in the case, but say they are continuing their work.

Spierer was last seen June 3, 2011 around 4:30 a.m. at the intersection of 11th Street and College Avenue in Bloomington walking to her apartment in Smallwood Plaza from a night with friends at a Bloomington bar.

IU President Michael McRobbie acknowledged Spierer at this year‘s commencement ceremony, when the apparel merchandising major would have graduated.
