Bloomington, Ind.—The parents of missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer continue plead with anyone who may have seen their 20-year-old daughter to come forward. Robert and Charlene Spierer have been in Bloomington, Indiana since Saturday searching for Lauren. Wednesday marks day six since she disappeared while walking home early Friday morning.
"It's been extremely difficult but we are doing what we have to do and as I said before no matter what we feel and how difficult we think it is it's worse for Lauren," said her mother, Charlene Spierer.
Lauren's parents spoke with Fox59 News Wednesday morning. Reporter Kjerstin Ramsing asked Lauren's mother about what her daughter would think of all the volunteers and national attention to the search.
"She is amazing. She is just as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside and if the situation where as such that a friend of hers was missing, she would be out there 100% and she is just a giving loving person and she would go any distance for a friend or family. She is very sensitive and very caring warm sweet girl," said Charlene Spierer.
Lauren's father, Robert Spierer said it's not easy to see your daughter's face on billboards.
"It's difficult but our concern right now and our focus is finding Lauren and getting her back. Seeing the posters is hard but it is a way to get her face out into the public eye," said Robert Spierer.
Lauren's parents told Fox & Friends in a live interview Wednesday that they hope to meet with Bloomington Mayor Mark Kruzan, along with IU President Michael McRobbie to ask for additional resources to aid in the search for their daughter. IU recently sent an email campus-wide, alerting the student body to Lauren's disappearance. Emotional support is also being provided to those who need it.
Lauren is described as approximately four feet, 11 inches tall with a slender build. She has blue eyes and blonde hair, longer than shoulder length. The 20-year-old had just finished her sophomore year at IU. Charlene Spierer said her daughter has a life-threatening heart condition called Long QT Syndrome. Her mother has asked if anyone knows where Lauren is, to please take her to a hospital. Anyone with information should call Bloomington police at 812-339-4477.
