Ilana Portner, left, and Molly Carroll, both friends of missing IU student Lauren Spierer, prepare to go out with volunteer searchers on Thursday june 9th. PHOTO Abby Tonsing Herald-Times. It’s not like Lauren Spierer not to check in with her friends by text message or by cellphone. The 20-year-old Bloomington transplant from Scarsdale, N.Y., is also known to call her mother, Charlene, on a daily basis.
Family and friends haven’t heard from or seen Lauren Spierer for more than a week. She was last reported seen at the corner of 11th Street and College Avenue about 4:30 a.m. Friday, June 3. She didn’t make it home. When the Indiana University student didn’t answer text messages sent to her cellphone by 11 a.m. Friday, June 3, friend and fellow Smallwood Plaza dweller Ilana Portner said she knew something was up and went to check on her. “If one of us doesn’t text somebody, we just knock,” said Portner, a 19-year-old communications student from Philadelphia. “We spend our whole days together up until it’s time to go to bed.”
Police have not named any suspects in Lauren Spierer’s disappearance more than a week ago. They have investigated a group of about 10 persons of interest in the case. Some members of that group may “not necessarily” be known to LaurenSpierer, her photo above, Parker said Friday. Many of Lauren Spierer’s friends from Smallwood decided to stay home the night of Thursday, June 2. “The rest of the group mutually decided not to go out,” Portner said.
Like Portner, 20-year-old Molly Carroll has been on the search for Spierer since the evening of June 3. Carroll, from Shelbyville, describes her classmate as “bubbly” and as a young woman who naturally grabs attention. Spierer is also known for loving hugs, Carroll and Portner said. The girls said they often cuddled on the couch with their caring friend while watching movies. While describing her friend, Portner paused and flashed a broad smile. Spierer has an amazing sense of fashion, she said: “She always dressed me when we’d go out.”
Lauren Spierer, her photo above, has been missing since early Friday morning, June 3rd, and was last seen at the corner of 11th St. and College Ave. (she was walking South on College Ave.) in Bloomington, IN at 4:15 A.M.. prior to that Lauren Spierer had been at Kilroy’s Sports Bar at 319 North Walnut Street, Bloomington, IN where she left her cell phone and shoes.
Let’s get real here, Lauren Spierer is very young looking, she is 20 years old with blond hair and blue eyes, but at 4′ 11″ tall and 98 lbs she looks like a 14 year old and fits the profile of a target for a sex offender. A hard target search of the 17 registered sex offenders living and working in the near vicinty of Kilroy’s Sports Bar at 319 North Walnut Street should be at the top of the list for the Bloomington Police Dept.
Lauren Spierer was living at SMALLWODD PLAZA APARTMENTS 455 N. College Ave, Bloomington IN, police have removed the security tapes and computers from the office at the SMALLWODD PLAZA APARTMENTS.
There are two sex offenders working at the Waffle House Rest at 530 N. College Ave (corner of 10th Street and College Ave) that is open 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, see map CLICK HERE. The Waffle House Rest address at 530 N. College Ave is directly across the street from the SMALLWODD PLAZA APARTMENTS at 455 N. College Ave where Lauren Spierer lived.
