Investigators Focus On Surveillance Footage In Spierer Case

The police are working on new leads from a video surveillance. A vehicle seen in surveillance footage from the night Lauren Spierer was last seen is the focus of a new turn in the police investigation of her disappearance.

Though it’s the second full week since Lauren Spierer disappeared, Bloomington Police Captain Joe Qualters says investigators have found a new piece of video evidence to scrutinize. “We’re working on analysis of a vehicle or a couple of vehicles that we may request information from the public,” Qualters said.

Police are releasing limited information to the public at this time. “I’m not in a position to tell you exactly what kind of vehicle, what color of anything,” he said.

An emotional Charlene Spierer read a portion of an email received from her daughter in March while she was away for spring break. “It’s life changing, I miss and love you both,” Spierer said.

“To anybody that has information about Lauren, what are you waiting for,” she asked. “There’s complete anonymity, what you know might help us it might be the key today that’s going to make the difference,” Spierer said.

Police say they’re working on a visual aid to be released later this week showing the timeline of events that night.
