After nine days, Bloomington Police Department have decided to discontinue a search of the Sycamore Ridge Landfill.
According to BPD, there are no updates regarding the ongoing effort at the landfill.
Many critics are asking why it took so long for authorities to broaden their search for missing IU student Lauren Spierer to include a Vigo County landfill.
A Bloomington Police official says the search for missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer has begun at a landfill south of Terre Haute.
The parents of missing IU student Lauren Spierer are encouraging people to assist in hanging up new search posters.
Police have identified the gunman in Monday's hostage situation as Richard North of Bloomington.
Charlene Spierer reiterated her pleas for those who have information to come forward.
Saturday is “Find Lauren Day” and the Spierer’s hope volunteers will help canvass the area in the search for their daughter.
Volunteers are urged to gather at 8 a.m. at McNutt Quad on the IU Campus.
In an effort to make it even easier to report tips, the Spierer’s have established a post office box where confidential, anonymous information can be sent.
