Jewish College Student Missing At Indiana University

Lauren Spierer, a 20-year-old Indian University student, has been missing since 4:30 a.m. Friday. The Bloomington Police Department, family, friends and local residents continue to search for her.

Spierer, who is Jewish, is 4 feet 11 inches tall, weighs between 90 and 100 pounds and has blue eyes and blond hair just below the shoulder, according to fliers posted throughout Bloomington.

She is from Westchester County near Scarsdale, N.Y. and just finished her sophomore year at IU.

Her name for Tehillim is Golda bas Mazal.

Spierer studies fashion merchandising and is a University Division scholar. She planned to stay in Bloomington for part of this summer to take a course at Ivy Tech Community College before starting an internship at the clothing store Anthropologie in New York City. Her parents and older sister live in New York.

Spierer was last seen walking south on College Avenue. She had been hanging out with friends at Kilroy’s Sports Bar. The bar features a sand and beach area, which may explain why she was seen walking away with no shoes, her mother Charlene Spierer said.

She was wearing a white tank top, a loose, light-colored button shirt and full-length black stretch pants.

Spierer’s apartment is only a block and a half away from Kilroy’s Sports, and the last place she was seen, the intersection of 11th Street and College Avenue, is another two and a half blocks away.

Her known locations are all within a three-block radius of her apartment. Video footage at the Smallwood apartment complex shows that she never made it home.

Robert and Charlene Spierer, Lauren’s parents, flew in from New York early Saturday morning.

They immediately contacted the Bloomington Police Department, filed a report and started printing fliers with their daughter’s smiling picture.

The police department told her parents they had custody of their daughter’s phone and wallet. There were conflicting reports stating the items were found in either her friend’s house or the bar. The Spierers stayed at a downtown hotel Saturday night.
