Jewish college student missing in Indiana


Police, family and friends are searching for Lauren Spierer, a sophomore at Indiana University who is missing.

Spierer, 20, who is Jewish, has been missing since early on the morning of June 3, the Indiana Daily Student reported.

Fliers with the native New Yorker’s picture and information about her have been posted throughout Bloomington, the site of the university.

She was last seen leaving an off-campus sports bar less than two blocks from her apartment where she had spent the evening with friends, according to the student newspaper. She never made it to her apartment.

Spierer’s parents, Robert and Charlene Spierer, flew to Bloomington from New York on June 4 to coordinate the search, which has included the campus, the town and area woods and parks. Police said they had her cell phone and wallet, though it is not clear whether Spierer left them at the bar, according to the Daily Student.

A Facebook page, Lauren Spierer Missing, has been created. As of Monday morning it had nearly 1,700 friends.
