So heartbreaking.  We are keeping Lauren and her family in our prayers.  I hope they find her soon, and I pray anyone that knows anything, heard anything or witnessed anything to come forward.

It is a heartbreaking situation, kippy.  Lauren's parents continue in their determination to get answers and find her.  Their tweet sounds very focused and directed at a specific person--"Don't be sorry, just start being honest."  Let's hope that the person gets the courage to provide some information.

I noticed her smiling, too, maybe just another student coming towards her.  Also, IIRC, David was staying in the same apartment building; they went to Jay's townhouse together.

With video from the "Laps for Lauren" event.  What a thoughtful "thank you" to the volunteers.  It also gives the parents an opportunity to keep Lauren in the news.

Spierer family hosts "feel good" event for volunteers
Updated: Jul 09, 2011 9:21 PM CDT
By Richard Essex - bio

BLOOMINGTON - Volunteers who helped search for a missing IU student held a reunion Saturday.

"Laps for Lauren" was a chance for Lauren Spierer's family to say thank you and to talk about hope.

"Welcome. We're glad you were able to come out today," Lauren's father, Robert, told the crowd. "We feel a very integral part of this community."

From the minute the Spierers arrived in Bloomington, they have been surrounded by strangers that have become a second family.

"We wanted to feel good and have a feel good moment with the people of Bloomington," Spierer said.

There have been few such moments in the past five weeks. The search for Lauren is far from over, just suspended. Volunteers, who once lined up in the hundreds, are now down to about a dozen.

"It is just on my mind all of the time. I have been texting back and forth with Lauren's mom, Charlene, just 'How are you? Thinking about you.' Just anything that reminds me of Lauren or IU students or my daughters," said volunteer Lisa Mallory.

Campus officials continue search for Lauren Spierer
By Jake New | IDS
POSTED AT 07:12 PM ON Jul. 10, 2011  (UPDATED AT 08:48 PM ON Jul. 10, 2011)

After nearly a month of searching city streets, campus buildings and county parks, the official public searches for Lauren Spierer were called off June 29.

But now, as the search continues well into its second month, University officials say they have not given up trying to find the missing IU student.

“We will continue to be with the family every step of the way,” said Rabbi Sue Silberberg, director of IU’s Helene G. Simon Hillel Center. “We are determined and will not stop until we find Lauren.”

 ::snipping2::

Dean of Students Harold “Pete” Goldsmith said the University will also continue to be involved.

Lauren Spierer awareness ride to start at Harley-Davidson in Bloomington

By Abby Tonsing 331-4245 | atonsing@heraldt.com
July 13, 2011, last update: 7/13 @ 1:46 pm

Motorcycle enthusiasts and those who want to continue to raise awareness about missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer are invited to participate in a motorcycle ride at the end of the month.

The Ride for Lauren is an “awareness ride,” said Spierer’s uncle, David Spierer, who is organizing the event. Registration for the motorcycle ride starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, July 30, with riders leaving Harley-Davidson of Bloomington, 552 W. Gourley Pike, at 10 a.m. and returning to the bike shop at the ride’s completion. The event is free, organizers say, but donations will be accepted.

 ::snipping2::

The 50-mile ride will take participants through sections of Bean Blossom and Nashville in Brown County, explained David Spierer. He said Tuesday he was still finishing a route map. “The objective is to have volunteers stationed at stopping points,” he said, “And to pass out fliers along these stations.”

Family of Lauren Spierer Seeks Reflection
July 15, 2011 | Filed underHeadlines | Posted by Jane Hyden

The search for the missing Lauren Spierer has now ceased. The parents of Lauren have made multiple efforts to help find their missing daughter. They filed a report to the local police, broadcast their plea via video, and recently they sent emails to Lauren Spierer’s friends to ask for their reflections on Lauren.

 ::snipping2::

According to recent reports, there has been no good news for the Lauren Spierer case thus far. Also, the searches for her have already stopped, and that’s not good news either. But the Spierer family’s hope of her being found is still there. The family is even planning to show Lauren the testimonies her friends sent when she comes back.

Scarsdale store raising money for Lauren Spierer search • 07.15.11

Friends of Lauren Spierer and a local store are holding a fundraiser Saturday to raise money for a charity helping to continue the search for the college student who went missing six weeks ago.

LF Scarsdale, a women’s clothing boutique, will hold a “Headbands for Hope” event to raise awareness and money to continue the search for Spierer, an Edgemont resident and Indiana University student who was reported missing near the college in June. Spierer worked at the store while in high school.

Lauren Spierer: 'Headbands for Hope' raises money for search

"We are as determined as ever when we first got the phone call," said Rebecca Lefkowitz, a 19-year-old friend of Spierer who helped coordinate the event. "We will not stop until she comes home. ... It really could have been anyone."

 ::snipping2::

Spierer had worked at the store when she was in high school, and the owners were donating a percentage of their sales to Helene G. Simon Hillel Center, which is aiding the search.

Spierer's roommate, Blair Wallach of Closter, N.J., said the event was important because it showed people that the search was ongoing.

"It's hard to be here without her," said Wallach, 20. "It's nice to see all the support. This story touches the heart of anyone who has heard about it."

Expert: Loss of memory common after head injury
Spierer’s friend says he can’t remember altercation at Smallwood the night she disappeared
By Dann Denny 331-4350 | ddenny@heraldt.com
July 17, 2011

The night of Lauren Spierer’s disappearance, 21-year-old Indiana University student Corey Rossman was with her at Kilroy’s Sports Bar, after which the two walked to the downtown Smallwood Plaza complex where Spierer lives — where Rossman said he was injured in an altercation but remembers nothing about the event, according to his attorney, Carl Salzmann.

Bloomington neurosurgeon Souheil Haddad said memory loss is very common after a head injury. He said the technical term for memory loss is amnesia, of which there are two types — retrograde amnesia, which involves losing memory of the time period leading up to a head injury; and anterograde amnesia, which involves losing memory of the events that occur after an injury.

“Typically, the most severe amnesia is retrograde amnesia,” Haddad said. “Over time, and as the patient recovers, he or she will start remembering more and more. Typically, the events that occurred before — retrograde amnesia — are remembered better than those that occurred after — anterograde amnesia. The injury itself may never be remembered.”

Landfill Not Yet Searched in Lauren Spierer Case
Posted on July 16th, 2011 10:16 by Tony Gatto

From the Bloomington Herald Times…

In the six-week-long investigation into the disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, Bloomington police have not searched the landfill just south of Terre Haute where Bloomington’s city trash is hauled.

Should police request a search of the Terre Haute landfill, they’ll know which sections of the landfill contain Bloomington’s recent garbage and from what days.

“We were contacted,” Mike Calleja, a general manager for Republic Services, confirmed last week in a phone interview from his office at the Sycamore Ridge landfill in Pimento, south of Terre Haute. While Calleja did not give a specific date or time he was contacted by police, he described it as “initially” in the investigation.

 ::snipping2::

Calleja said the landfill has not been served with a search warrant. He deferred other questions to Bloomington police Capt. Joe Qualters.
“Decisions about any searches that would take place anywhere would be made by the investigators,” Qualters said in an email. He would not answer specific questions about Hoosier Disposal and Recycling, Republic Services or the possibility of trash searches. “We have taken the position to not speak about details related to the investigation unless it would be done to solicit tips or assistance from the public,” he said.

YW, cw618.  I agree with you that they should have looked into the landfill.  The landfill person said that le made contact with him at the beginning of the disappearance, but no search was conducted.

Landfill has capability to search for missing IU student's possible remains
Many are urging the Bloomington Police Department to search a Pimento landfill for the possible remains of missing IU student Lauren Spierer

Pimento, Ind. — Many are urging the Bloomington Police Department to search a Pimento landfill for the possible remains of missing IU student Lauren Spierer

The Sycamore Ridge Landfill is where all of Bloomington's trash is dumped.  Management said if Bloomington Police wanted to search this landfill for Lauren Spierer's possible remains they could find the specific trash they want using something many of us have in our cars: GPS technology.  Per state guidelines, each load of trash dumped at Sycamore Ridge is plotted using a GPS locator system.

 ::snipping2::

"We would have the ability, if someone gave us specific information, to try to come as close as we possibly could to locating that day's deposit," said DePasse. 

Bloomington Police said investigators have not searched the landfill, and detectives won't say if that's even a possibility, though.

Lauren Spierer appeared 'in no condition' to help friend get home, source says
5:10 PM, Jul. 21, 2011
Written by
SHAWN COHEN
The (Westchester, N.Y.) Journal News

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana University sophomore Lauren Spierer was so incapacitated as she left her apartment building the morning she went missing that she stumbled out of her elevator, fell against a wall and had to be helped to her feet by a male friend who led her out of the building, a person who saw the video evidence said Thursday.

The evidence contradicts statements by friend Corey Rossman's lawyer, who said Spierer helped his client walk home June 3 after he was punched in the face and suffered memory loss.

"As for this idea that she was Florence Nightingale and taking him back because she was concerned, she wasn't in any condition to take care of herself, let alone another human being," said the source, one of scores of people who have seen the evidence but who was only willing to comment anonymously. "She couldn't even stand up on her own. I have difficulty with this individual (Rossman) saying he can't remember anything when he's the guy who picked her up and took her out of the building."

Lauren Spierer's boyfriend says he passed polygraph
Jul 22, 2011 
Written by
Shawn Cohen

The boyfriend of missing college student Lauren Spierer spoke with detectives this week and has taken a lie-detector test, he confirmed in a Facebook exchange with a Journal News reporter.

And he suggested he passed the polygraph.

"If I failed a polygraph everyone in the world would know," read the message written from Jesse Wolff's Facebook account.
These were his first public comments since police identified him early in the investigation as one of the "persons of interest."

He also said "my life (explective) sucks," in response to questions about the disappearance, search and investigation that has now been going on for 50 days.
