'Shine 4 Lauren' Retraces Spierer's Steps

Concert Held In Search For Lauren Spierer

Hundreds of people gathered in Bloomington on a rainy Thursday night for "Shine 4 Lauren," a concert designed to keep the spotlight on the search for missing Indiana University student Lauren Spierer.

Before the music began, students and friends of Spierer were shown a video that retraced her steps on June 3, the day of her disappearance.

"According to their attorneys, Jay Rosenbaum was the last person to see Lauren Spierer," a narrator on the video said. "He reported seeing Lauren at the intersection of 11th Street and College Avenue, heading south on College around 4:30 a.m. early Friday morning."

The video also discussed the other people investigators said had contact with Spierer in the hours before she vanished.

Spierer's parents, Robert and Charlene Spierer, have been steadfast in their determination to keep their missing daughter's story alive.

"We're asking people to find the courage to come forward, and we also want the students to know that they have safe options in their lives through the city of Bloomington or through the school," Robert Spierer said.

"Someone knows the truth, and that person needs to step forward and give the Spierers a little bit more peace," said Justin Kingsolver, president of the IU Student Association. "Whatever the outcome is, there's no reason anyone should ever put parents through that."

IU basketball coach Tom Crean served as one of the MCs of the event. Student leaders from organizations across the IU campus helped organize the event.
