Indiana University announced Tuesday it would be donating $50,000 to help the search for missing student Lauren Spierer. Spierer had just finished her sophomore year on the Bloomington campus before she disappeared in the early morning hours of June 3rd, 2011.

Dean of Students Pete Goldsmith said the university wants to do anything it can to bring Lauren home.

"We're just anxious to help. It's a tragedy that they don't know where their daughter is," said Goldsmith.
