Tips about missing IU student pour in after "America's Most Wanted" TV show
Bloomginton Police are following up a flood of tips that came in Saturday night after "America's Most Wanted" featured the disappearance of Lauren Spierer on the Fox Network and Fox59 (WXIN).

The 20-year-old Indiana University student has been missing since the early morning hours of June 3rd.

"We received about 30-to-40 tips between the time the show aired at 9 p.m. eastern and 3 a.m, which includes west coast broadcast time," said Bloomington Police Captain Joe Qualters. "And we exepect more tips to come in," added Qualters.

Meanwhile, investigators expect to talk to many more people who know Lauren.

"There are individuals we want to speak with. We hope to broaden the number of people we speak with. There are some here {in Bloomington} and some not here," said Capt. Qualters.

Police are still analyzing surveillance video in the area, where Lauren was last seen but investigators aren't ready to show that video to the public.

"If we think the video we have needs to be released to the public to gain further information, we'll do that. At this point, we don't believe it's necessary," said Qualters.

Police said U.S. Marshals were in Bloomington Friday, conducting a sex-offender search.

"They were making sure all registered sex-offenders in the Monroe County area were in compliance. No one was taken into custody," said Qualters.

Lauren's father, Robert Spierer, said beginning Monday, they will go from three search times daily down to two times a day.

"After today, we'll go to two search times, eliminating the 2 p.m. search. The 11 a.m. time will be our primary search, followed by another search at 5:30pm," said Mr. Spierer.

Lauren's mother, Charlene Spierer, made a direct statement to the person responsible for Lauren's disappearance.

"To the person who has Lauren, shame on you," her mother exclaimed. "And to the person who knows this person, come forward!"

So far police have 10 persons of interest in the case. These persons of interest, according to police, are people who know Lauren but no one has been identified as a suspect.

Lauren Spierer is described as approximately 4' 11" 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. If anyone knows where Lauren is, they are asked to please take her to a hospital.
