Bloomington Police have removed two computer hard drives from rooms off of the lobby at Smallwood Plaza. Missing IU student Lauren Spierer lives at Smallwood Plaza.
An apartment complex resident told Fox59 News the hard drives contain security camera footage. Police said there's no evidence Lauren ever entered her apartment building Friday.
Police are continuing to search the apartment building looking for clues into her disappearance.
The videos are expected to help police find people who were around the building around the time Lauren disappeared.
Smallwood Plaza released the following statement concerning the search warrant:
"Smallwood Plaza has and will continue to fully support and cooperate with this police investigation, and respects the decision to obtain these hard drives as quickly as possible. At the time police attempted to serve a warrant, an on-site staff member was not available with a key to gain access to the needed area.
The search for Lauren Spierer takes precedence and our thoughts and prayers go to her and her family."
The 20-year-old sophomore went missing early Friday morning. She was last seen walking towards her apartment on College Avenue.
At about 7:30 p.m. Tuesday night, the first of four Bloomington Police cars with lights flashing arrived in the 800 block of College Avenue. One officer was carrying a battering ram. An officer told Fox59 News that investigators were attempting to find a key to open an apartment.
At 8:25 p.m., police used the battering ram to knock down two doors near the lobby of the apartment building.
Volunteers fanned out through Bloomington earlier Tuesday night looking for Lauren.
Friday morning, Hadar Tamir was one of the first to notice roommate Spierer didn't come home the night before. A phone call from Lauren's boyfriend alerted Amand Roude who called Sara Gornish and the search was on for the missing IU co-ed.
The three young women searched neighborhoods around 11th Street and College Avenue again on Tuesday looking for jewelry or any evidence their friend passed through.
Spierer was last spotted near that intersection at 4:30 a.m. Friday morning heading for her apartment at Smallwood Plaza three blocks away. Spierer never made it and for the second night in a row volunteers set off from Smallwood to walk neighborhoods, prowl the IU campus and search through wooded areas.
Bloomington police said they suspect foul play in the 20-year-old's disappearance.
Before the search began, Charlene Spierer climbed atop the back of a nearby pickup truck and urged witnesses to report even the slightest clues to help bring her daughter home.
