Posted: Updated:

BLOOMINGTON, IN (WAVE) - The last person to report seeing Lauren Spierer said he had nothing to do with the IU sophomore's disappearance and that he has fully cooperated with police.

According to his lawyer, Jay Rosenbaum also said he met with Lauren's parents for two hours and held another session with their private investigator answering all their questions about the case.

Offering his first public statements on the case Rosenbaum told the Journal News "I had nothing to do with the disappearance of Lauren. Obviously there's nothing more that I want than for Lauren to be found and safe and for this all to be over."

Rosenbaum is among the persons of interest in the ongoing investigation of Spierer's June 3 disappearance.
