BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) — Tuesday marks the third anniversary for the disappearance of Indiana University student Lauren Spierer, and the Bloomington Police Department said Monday it is still receiving tips.

Spierier, then 20 years old, disappeared June 3, 2011 after a night out with friends in Bloomington. In the weeks that followed, large groups of people searched Bloomington and surrounding areas but never found her. Posters about her disappearance remain in spots around Monroe County.

In the past year, the Bloomington Police Department received 282 tips connected to the Spierer case, according to the department. The most recent tip was Thursday.

The department released the following statement:

While the number of tips received may not be at the level they were just after Lauren’s disappearance, it is important to note that tips are still coming in as evidenced by the fact that information was just provided in the last few days. BPD investigators continue to follow-up on information that comes in and our commitment to the case is unwavering. We remain hopeful that someone with knowledge of the circumstances surrounding Lauren’s disappearance will do the right thing by stepping up and contacting our agency.

An ongoing court battle continues between the parents of Spierer and the men believed to be last to see her before her disappearance. The Spierers say the men were responsible for ensuring their daughter safely returned to their department. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
