Oh gosh I hope they dont find her. Didnt they find a something in the dumpster we heard about? Or by a dumpster? Perhaps that is when they secured a search warrant?

Tracygirl, I remember le searching by a dumpster.  It was on the 6th floor of Lauren's apartment building.  Here's an article about that search.  Is that what you were thinking about?  I think that they concluded that it was not related to Lauren.

Yes that was it. I am not sure what lead them to secure a warrant for the landfill, perhaps it is common practice? I just hope they get to start searching soon if they believe it would be worth doing.

They haven't found Lauren.  Where is she?  Someone knows where she is at.  All they have to do is call the tip line--for heaven's sake!

Sad.  They don't seem to realize that it is more than just walking alone at night; the danger also involves the activities that you are involved with and with whom you are socializing.

Spierer Family Sounds Off, Releases New Poster
Missing IU Student's Parents: 'We Will Never Give Up'
POSTED: 2:06 pm EDT August 14, 2011

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The family of Lauren Spierer, the Indiana University student missing since June 3, are distributing a new poster in hopes that it might lead to more information about her disappearance.

 ::snipping2::

"It is impossible to explain, as we continue to search for Lauren, what the experience of having a missing child is like," read a statement from Robert and Charlene Spierer, Lauren's parents, that was posted to FindLauren.com on Friday. "There is no explanation for why this has happened."

Lauren Spierer's parents': Silence of friends "threatens to be our undoing"
Aug 15, 2011 
Written by
Ned P. Rauch

Robert and Charlene Spierer have vowed to "never give up" their search for their missing daughter, Lauren, despite "deafening silence" from the people who saw her last that they said "threatens to be our undoing."

In a new letter posted Saturday to the website findlauren.com, the Spierers wrote, "There is no reason to think the people Lauren was last with, wouldn't do everything in their power to help us find her. But, alas, there is deafening silence.

"That silence compounds our frustration, our desperation and our grief in not having found Lauren. It threatens to be our undoing but make no mistake, we will never give up."

 ::snipping2::

The Spierers and their supporters are asking for volunteers to help them distribute the poster throughout Bloomington and the university's campus on Aug. 28, the day before classes are scheduled to resume.

Police at landfill seeking clues in missing Indiana student case

PIMENTO, Ind. Bloomington police, the FBI and other law enforcement officials are searching a western Indiana landfill for evidence in the case of an Indiana University student who vanished more than two months ago.

The Bloomington Police Department said in a statement today that its officers, the FBI and the IU Police Department began searching Sycamore Ridge Landfill south of Terre Haute about 7 a.m. for clues in the disappearance of 20-year-old Lauren Spierer.

The Greenburgh, N.Y., woman vanished June 3 after a night out in Bloomington with friends.

A team from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children is helping search the landfill, which accepts trash from the Bloomington area. Police say the search could take up to two weeks and involve 20 to 30 officers each day.

From Indianapolis Star today:

Police search landfill for evidence in Spierer case

Bloomington Police Department today began looking for evidence in the disappearance of Lauren Spierer at a Vigo County landfill.

The search of the Sycamore Ridge Landfill could take up to two weeks, police said in a news release. Twenty to 30 members of the FBI, Indiana University Police Department and a search expert from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children will work each day, the release said.

Spierer, an Indiana University student, was reported missing June 3.

The release said preparations for searching the Sycamore Ridge Landfill began days after Spierer's disappearance after police contacted waste collections companies. Police initially searched dumpsters around 11th and College in Bloomington.

Waste from Bloomington is taken to a transfer station south of the city and then transported to the Sycamore Ridge Landfill.

The location of waste taken from Bloomington around the date of Spierer's disappearance has been identified and isolated at Sycamore Ridge Landfill. No new waste has been placed into that area.

In addition to searching the landfill, professional searchers and volunteers continued a land search for Spierer, covering 10 to 12 miles from Spierer's last location.

It's good to hear that the police identified and secured that area of the landfill so early in the investigation.  I guess, at that time, they seemed to be concentrating on interviewing people, gathering information, and following up on tips.

Search for missing Lauren Spierer moves to dump
Published: Aug. 17, 2011 at 1:03 PM

 ::snipping2::

"Preparations for this undertaking began within days of Lauren Spierer being reported missing," said Capt. Joe Qualters.

Police say they had contacted the owners of the landfill the week of June 6 to arrange a search, then cordoned off the area where Bloomington trash from around that time was placed.

"That location within the landfill has remained isolated and secured since that time with no additional waste placed in the identified area," Qualters said.

The missing girl's parents, Robert and Charlene Spierer, said they were informed of the landfill search by Bloomington police.

Parents share new pictures of missing IU student Lauren Spierer

But now new images are surfacing. As a toddler, she is the face of innocence and the promise of things to come. She is someone's little girl.

"It's a huge hole in our lives," said Charlene Spierer, Lauren's mother.

 ::snipping2::

The search is expected to last up to two weeks. While Robert and Charlene Spierer were there for the first day, they have now gone home together to New York.

The couple is expected to be gone a few days. Before they left they expressed a growing frustration not with investigators but with those who were last seen with their daughter.

"The people that know something who were with her left town shortly after she disappeared. No one's heard from them since they left town," said Robert Spierer.

As investigators dig for clues, this family waits for answers, always keeping in their hearts that little girl, holding out hope they'll one day bring her home.

The Spierers left for a family event back home in New York. They are expected back in Bloomington in part for the distribution of a new poster which is to take place August 28th.

Landfill search turns up no evidence in Spierer case

Bloomington Police said Friday there was no new evidence in the case of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer as investigators wrap up their first week of excavating a landfill in Vigo County.

Police said in a release they expect the search of the cordoned area of the waste site to wrap up at the end of next week.

The search effort at the Sycamore Ridge Landfill near Terre Haute consists of 20 to 30 search personnel from the Bloomington police, FBI and the Indiana University police department, along with equipment operators from Republic Services, which owns the landfill.

Roughly 500 to 600 tons are searched every day, according to a news release from the Bloomington police. The search area takes in an area of about 8,400 square feet, or 50 to 60 truckloads of waste.

The search is to resume Monday. It will not take place over the weekend because heavy equipment operators have reached the maximum allowable time to operate machinery being used in the search effort, the news release said.

Spierer, a 20-year-old from Greenburgh, N.Y., was reported missing on June 3. She was taking summer classes at IU before she was reported missing.

If heavy equipment operators are like long-distance truck drivers, they're only allowed by law to work a certain number of hours without resting.

Lauren Spierer Update: Landfill search, IU fall semester starting
Radell Smith, Criminal Profiles Examiner
August 19, 2011

 ::snipping2::

The Sycamore Ridge Landfill search commenced only after police were unable to determine through witness statements -- or land searches conducted near her last known sighting -- what happened to the 20-year-old sophmore student on the early morning of June 4.

 ::snipping2::

Profile
Law enforcement agencies do not typically bring in the FBI to assist unless they feel they need the benefit of their specialized expertise in a particular case. Bloomington PD has, for the most part, played the more vocal investigative role in Lauren's disappearance. That appears to be changing to some degree with the FBI's presence at the landfill.

Look for new interviews to be conducted with all parties involved in the case when the fall semester begins at IU (and all the original parties involved are back on campus) -- and the FBI to be the interviewers (or the ones providing the investigative direction questions).

Lauren Spierer's parents return home to Westchester
2:17 PM, Aug. 22, 2011 

GREENBURGH The parents of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer have returned home to Edgemont, after 11 grueling weeks of searches that failed to turn up evidence of their missing daughter.

 ::snipping2::

The Spierers will return to Bloomington this weekend to participate in another volunteer effort to hang new posters throughout Bloomington and the Indiana University campus, as students return to campus for the new school year.

"As the summer comes to a close, we are still waiting for answers which will lead us to Lauren," the parents said in a statement on the http://findlauren.com website. "Sunday, August 28, 2011, is the day we are asking for volunteers to help once again. Please join the effort to keep awareness of Lauren's disappearance on the minds of everyone...."

Posters will be distributed between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. from the front of the Copper Cup, next to Smallwood Plaza, where Spierer lived.

Spierers Seek Information About Lauren's Disappearance
Monday, 22 August 2011 15:22 administrator

 ::snipping2::

Charlene Spierer, Lauren's mother, said "Our energy and our efforts remain undiminished. We get through each day with the love and support of family, friends, acquaintances and people we don't even know. We will find Lauren." Spierer has put out a plea that anyone with information about Lauren please come forward. Lauren's father Rob added, "Any information, no matter how insignificant it may seem, could be of help. Please don't hold back. Anything you know, anything you saw, anyone you spoke to might help us find Lauren."

The Spierers said they know Lauren would be "leading the search" if one of her friends were missing. "She is kind, compassionate and full of life. Please, whoever knows something, remember what she means to you, what she would do for you and please help us," Charlene said.

Spierer Family Calls For More Help As Landfill Search Continues
Poster Distribution Event Planned For Sunday
POSTED: 11:01 am EDT August 23, 2011

 ::snipping2::

Family members have organized a seven-hour Aug. 28 event in which volunteers will put up new posters, with the work beginning at 10 a.m. at the Copper Cup, next to Smallwood Plaza, where Lauren lived.

"Whether you're able to put up five posters or 50, your time is greatly appreciated," the family said in a statement on its website. "We encourage EVERYONE to come out, help and show your support."

The renewed poster push comes as searchers pore through a Vigo County landfill for a second week, hoping to find new evidence related to Spierer's disappearance.

The first week of searching at the Sycamore Ridge Landfill turned up nothing, authorities said.
