There are some still shots of Lauren on this page from video. Pics can not be brought over here right now but it shows exactly what she was wearing and it appears she is holding a jacket. Apologies, if this was posted already.

UPDATE:
With the investigation into college student Lauren Spierer’s disappearance two weeks old, police said today they’ve received more than 1,000 tips, including hundreds related to a mystery white truck, but still no big break in the case.

“The bottom line is at this point we still have a missing person, and our effort to try to find Lauren will not stop,”  Bloomington police Capt. Joe Qualters said during today’s news conference.

EARLIER STORY:
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — The mother of missing college student Lauren Spierer suggested Thursday that her friends might be withholding information that could help locate her daughter.
"I'm addressing the people that know the answer to where Lauren is," Charlene Spierer said during a news conference.
"This is our dear daughter, Lauren, OK?" she said. "I'm begging you. What would you want your friends to do with you? If this was a friend of Lauren's and Lauren had information that would help us find her friend, she would have been there yesterday. ... Please come forward and help us."

Police release timeline for IU student Lauren Spierer
11:54 AM, Jun. 16, 2011

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Police investigating the disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer today released a timeline that is their best estimation of her last known movements.

The timeline tracks Spierer from a sports bar to her apartment complex, through an alley and back onto College Avenue, one of Bloomington’s main thoroughfares.

Much of the early morning of June 3, her movements were caught on surveillance video and are documented down to the minute. The timeline thins out considerably after 2:51 a.m., when police say they have only witness accounts of her movements -- including the last sight of her at 4:30 a.m.

Here’s the timeline:
1:46 a.m. — Enters Kilroy’s Sports Bar.
2:27 a.m. — Exits Kilroy’s
2:48 a.m. — Enters a North/South alley between 10th and College Apartments and 10th and College Village.
2:51 a.m. — Exits the alley, heading toward an empty lot north of 10th & College Village Apartments.
4:30 a.m. — Last seen at 11th and College Ave.

 ::snipping2::

Meanwhile, Capt. Joe Qualters told reporters at daily briefing today that about 150 people on loan from law enforcement agencies and others with searching experience are at work in the Bloomington area.

These searchers swept a quarter-mile and half-mile radiuses around the Bloomington apartment complex where Spierer was last seen after a night of partying with friends.

 ::snipping2::

America's Most Wanted television show will air a new segment about the case Saturday night, Qualters said.

 ::snipping2::

Just wanted to mention that America's Most Wanted is preparing for their last show airing. I am heart broken that FOX is cancelling the show. They pulled this back in the 90's (been a faithful watcher since the 80's) and miraculously it came back. It baffles me what FOX could be thinking.....Anyway, just wanted to mention that for those who may not know.

Bloomington, Ind.—
Friday morning, police were called to the Smallwood Plaza, the apartment building of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer. Officers came out the Smallwood Plaza Apartments and removed a bag of clothes. The bag was found behind a dumpster on the 6th floor of the apartment building.

It's unclear if the bag has anything to do with the case. It was first found by a courtesy officer while he made rounds that morning. Reps for Smallwood Plaza said the items could not have been there the day before. Though people are currently moving into the building, reps added the bag was suspicious because it was tucked away.

"Given the circumstances we're dealing with right now, we thought it was absolutely prudent thing for us to do, to call police the be safe and sure," said a spokesperson for Smallwood.

Yes Val, I really believe Wolff was out looking for her that night, it is possible he was sooooo pizzed at her for being around the other guy and then going to his apt whether anything happened or not, found her and dragged her into a vehicle.  Things went further than he wanted and he had to get rid of her.  MOO!

To be fair, my scenario above could have been anyone driving around and found a tiny, pretty coed out way past her time, alone and maybe had the fubar look/walk.

So little information from the police. Who made cell phone calls to whom that night and at what times? Where was Jesse Wolff that night? What did Jesse Wolff do or take when he entered Lauren's apartment that Friday afternoon? What are the names of the boys whom Lauren and Corey encountered at Smallwood that night? The police have video of that encounter - so why haven't they shown it?

I'm starting to think the Indiana police do not really want a criminal case involving a whole lot of New Yorkers and their lawyers. They might be justified in this position: better for them to get ahead of the drug trade in Bloomington than to mop up after overdoses. In the same way, Aruba would never have been in the spotlight if the Natalee Holloway case had been an American-on-American problem.

Bloomington, Ind.— Bloomington police have received more than 1,000 tips but still don’t have any hard evidence that has lead them to Lauren Spierer two weeks after the investigation began.

Fox59 News took a closer look at the entire investigation Friday, beginning with day one.

 ::snipping2::

Lauren's father made an emotional plea during Friday's news conference.

"We all know this Sunday is Father's Day. I would ask any of the children out there to let your parents know, please let your parents know how much you love them. Parents, let your children know how much you love them," Robert Spierer said.

"The greatest gift Robby could get is to find Lauren," Charlene Spierer said.

   The report on Lauran was toooooo short--within a minute! 

They reported on Lauren's case again, because callers flooded the hot line after last week's show.  The callers mentioned the white truck.  It was shown and described.  "Police need your help in finding the truck; or, if you know anything about the disappearance of Lauren, call the hot line.  You can stay anonymous."

I have looked at the pic of lauren walking down the hall. To me it seems she had a said something to the man in the pic whos legs we see walking away from her. I wonder who that was and what they said.

Yes, Tracygirl, her father looked heart broken.   Her friends will be forever haunted by the memories of such a wonderful, fun-loving friend--Lauren; the first one to come forward will get the best deal. 

I'm not surprised that she spoke with the person, even if briefly, she is a friendly and outgoing person.

Lauren Spierer search: Closest friends at school reflect on missing college student
11:59 PM, Jun. 18, 2011
Written by
Shawn Cohen

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — When Lauren Spierer arrived at college, the popular freshman already had a network of friends.

Spierer, two of her three Indiana University roommates, her boyfriend and several other friends all went to the same group of Jewish, co-ed sleepaway camps in Wayne County, in northeast Pennsylvania. Spierer, a student from Greenburgh, has now been missing for two weeks.

At Camp Towanda, the petite fashionista had a summer romance with Jesse Wolff, a slightly older kid from Long Island who would become her college boyfriend. There, she also met Blair Wallach, who became her freshman roommate.

Meanwhile, she played inter-camp soccer and lacrosse against Amanda Roude, a Chappaqua girl at Indian Head Camp who became a close friend, and Hadar Tamir, a Long Island girl at Camp Chenawanda who moved in with Spierer and Wallach during their sophomore year.

By the time many of them arrived as Indiana freshmen in September 2009, they'd already met or were preparing to meet via Internet social networking sites.

"We pretty much had our group of friends made out before we came here," said Tamir.

Spierer search moves north near Martinsville
Updated: Jun 19, 2011 5:49 PM CDT

BLOOMINGTON - The search for missing IU student Lauren Spierer continued Sunday despite a stormy start.

Officers from Indiana State Police, Bloomington Police and a number of sheriff's departments have been searching an area around State Road 37 south of Martinsville since early Sunday morning. Police came to the area acting on a tip from someone who had been in the area.

Bloomington Police have an evidence technician on the scene. Eyewitness News reporter Richard Essex says police have been digging in an area near SR 37.

Members of the Indiana State Police Emergency Response Team were also among those searching Sunday. Crews have been combing the area with police dogs, four-wheel vehicles and helicopters most of the day.

The fact that the search was continuing on Father's Day was not lost on the troopers and others who volunteered to help look for Spierer.

Officers from Indiana State Police, Bloomington Police and a number of sheriff's departments have been searching an area around State Road 37 south of Martinsville since early Sunday morning. Police came to the area acting on a tip, reportedly from children who were riding ATVs in the area.

Bloomington Police have an evidence technician on the scene. Eyewitness News reporter Richard Essex says police have been digging in an area near SR 37.

Police stopped their search around 7 p.m. Sunday. Bloomington Police have yet to comment on what they learned from the search effort.

Police follow tip about missing student, search wooded area near Martinsville, nothing found
 
::snipping2::

At about 3 p.m., the BPD received a phone call on a tip line that said there was a suspicious odor in the area, BPD Capt. Joe Qualters said.

“We went up into the area that was described. We also checked by air the whole area up there, and while checking apparently someone found what appeared to be a fresh mound of dirt described as two feet by four feet,” he said. “They then began checking around underneath that ground and found absolutely nothing.”

Qualters repeated that absolutely nothing was found in relation to Lauren Spierer’s disappearance.

“I think the conclusion is perhaps it might be related to some kind of utility work in that area,” Qualters said.
