Normally on Fridays, I write a Funny Farm Report about the life I have on a hobby farm, but this week I feel that I need to write about something much more important than that. Lauren Spierer is a 20 year old fashion design student at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. Lauren has been missing for a week now with no signs of what happened to her.
Lauren is 4’11” tall with long blonde hair, blue eyes, and weighs about 90 pounds. She was last seen wearing black leggins or stretch pants, a white tank top, and a light colored button front shirt at around 4:30 in the morning on Friday June 3,2011 just 2 blocks or so from her apartment. Lauren had been with friends and acquaintances throughout the evening and she was returning to her apartment near campus.
Lauren’s family and friends have described her as fun and full of life. Lauren suffers from a heart condition and needs daily medication. She will need medical attention when she is found! Lauren is from New York and her parents have been in Bloomington since June 4, 2011 to aid in the search for her.
Police, FBI, students, her parents, teachers, coaches, and many volunteers have canvassed the area where she was last seen and yet to no avail. Search dogs have been brought in and many water ways have been searched as well. Now the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children and America’s Most Wanted are becoming involved in the case with hopes of adding both resources and more nationwide information about this beautiful young woman.
Poice reports say that the detectives are looking at 10 persons of interest including the last person she was knowingly with, Corey Rossman, and her boyfriend of two years, Jesse Wolfe. All of the persons of interest are supposedly cooperating with the police in this matter. Jesse Wolfe has not spoken with reporters that I know of, but Corey Rossman has said that he is praying for the family and that he hopes that they find her soon.
I personally went on a search this week for this young lady. I do not know her or any of her family or friends, but I have a 20 year old daughter and I can’t imagine her being gone without any signs of what happened to her. I also have other children that I can’t imagine livng through something like this with any of them. How horrible it must be to close your eyes and sleep if you have a missing child!
I am asking that if you have a blog or a Facebook or Twitter account that you post her picture or information on it. Watch America’s Most Wanted tonight to see the segment about her as well. Please keep her family in your prayers! If you want to print a flyer out or have the flyer for your pages, the link is on her name above in the article. Thanks for your prayers and thanks for anything you do to help!
