Spierers Don’t Believe Their Daughter Is Alive

Charlene Spierer expresses emotion at Tuesday's press conference.

The mother of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer says she no longer believes her daughter is alive. When asked by The Journal News in New York if she believed her daughter was alive, Charlene Spierer simply said, “I don‘t.”

The newspaper said Charlene and her husband Robert recently returned to Bloomington and are still continuing their effort to find Lauren. Their daughter went missing June 3rd of last year after a night of partying in Bloomington.

Robert Spierer said he believes at least one of the people his daughter was with still knows something about Lauren‘s disappearance. Corey Rossman remains a person of interest in the case but maintains that he was assaulted the night of Lauren‘s disappearance and does not remember what happened.

As the one-year anniversary of Lauren‘s disappearance approaches, the Spierers say they hope to continue to create interest in the case in a town that has seemingly returned to normal.
