The search continues for Lauren Spierer, the missing Indiana University student last seen June 3, 2011. The family of the 20-year-old fashion merchandising student is appealing to anyone having information about Spierer’s whereabouts to please come forward. Spierer has Long Qt Syndrome (LQTS), a heart rhythm condition that is potentially fatal without adherence to medically prescribed treatment. So, a short recovery time window is an imperative on a case that has so far generated few leads.
Lauren Spierer-Last Seen
The events leading up to Spierer’s disappearance began Thursday night. Spierer spent the evening at Kilroy’s Sports Bar until about 2:30 a.m. Spierer was then accompanied by a friend to her Smallwood Plaza apartment, where they loitered about in the lobby area. After a short period, the two left Spierer’s apartment building, and walked to the apartment building of another friend.
Then reportedly about 4:30 a.m. Friday morning, Spierer was last seen by a male friend walking barefoot back to her apartment building on 11th Street and College Avenue in Bloomington, Indiana. Police spokesperson, Lieutenant Bill Parker, said Spierer’s cell phone and shoes were found in the bar where she and friends had been earlier.
Police say the purse and keys initially thought to belong to Spierer found on the route to her apartment, instead were the property of a homicide victim that occurred Tuesday on the west side of Bloomington.
The IndyStar has reported Indianapolis Colts owner, Jim Irsay, is offering $10,000 for information leading to Spierer’s safe return.
