Organized Searches For Spierer Coming To End

Bloomington police announced today they will no longer be conducting regular searches for missing IU Student Lauren Spierer.

Captain Joe Qualters said the department will still be searching for Spierer if they receive specific leads, but the search headquarters at McNutt Quad is expected to close Wednesday.

According to Qualters, volunteers and professional searchers have looked for Spierer on foot, by boat, on horseback, and by using ATV’s and helicopters. Dogs have also been utilized in the search.

Over 600 volunteers showed up last week Saturday for “Find Lauren Day,” and a total of 10 miles around where Spierer was last seen has been predominantly covered, according to Qualters.
