Find Lauren: The Search for Lauren Spierer

Part of the reason for the slow traffic around here is because I’m now working for Skyword as a news and politics blogger for  Follow all of my stories here, and be sure to read what’s in spotlight. One of the stories I have been covering has to do with the tragic disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, a native of Westchester County, New York. My dad is from Westchester and I spent all my Christmas Eves there as a child; it’s a very close-to-home story for me. Ms. Spierer was last seen in the wee hours of the morning on June 3rd in Bloomington, Indiana, walking home alone after a night out with friends. The search for her seems to be stalled, with no leads that have been released to the public. Her parents, Robert and Charlene Spierer, have waged a courageous public battle to find their daughter, who turned 21 in January. Friends, family and supporters have organized fundraisers in both Westchester and the Bloomington area, including a self-defense class for women and an auction.
