BLOOMOINGTON, IN (WAVE) - Almost two years since an Indiana University college student disappeared her family is still pleading for answers.
Lauren Spierer disappeared in June 2011 after a night out with friends.
She was last seen alive leaving a bar in downtown Bloomington.
Wednesday her parents posted another plea on the "Official Lauren Spierer Updates from Her Family" Facebook page that read;
A Plea for anyone with any information to come forward so they can find Lauren and closure.
Reading these posts, you may not believe we
still have a difficult time accepting that Lauren is missing. She could
just as easily still be at IU, getting ready to graduate, getting ready
to begin the next phase of her life. We could be looking
forward to Lauren's big day with the anticipation, excitement and pride
that any parent feels when their child is on the brink of such a
wonderful accomplishment. You'd think we would be used to it by now.
You'd think our broken hearts would have started to mend. If the
circumstances of June 3, 2011 had been different, Lauren might still be
with us. Instead, in 2 months, our now 22 year old daughter will have
been missing for 2 years. There will be no graduation, there will be no
excited anticipation. There will be no future for Lauren. If you are a
loving parent, you can appreciate the depths of our commitment. You
can imagine what it might be like to receive the most horrible phone
call of your life. As redundant as it is to say, SOMEONE knows what
happened to Lauren. SOMEONE knows where Lauren is. Are you that person
or maybe you know the person responsible or maybe you know just the
right piece of information which could solve this mystery. Lauren did
not simply vanish into thin air. With heartfelt thanks to all
who continue to help us along this indescribable journey to find answers
and to bring Lauren home. Just as determined as day one. Rob & Charlene Spierer
