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
