Robert and Charlene Spierer were at a
meeting Thursday when Bo Dietl was given pRobertationary permission in Indiana to investigate the IU student's disappearance.
"Lauren is an important part of our family, and every day with out her is a lost day," said Charlene Spierer. "It's lost without Lauren."
Do not ask Charlene how long it has been since she's seen her daughter Lauren, it feels like yesterday.
"It feels like June 3," said Spierer. "As far as we're concerned, it's like the first day we heard that she was missing. We're just as passionate and intently searching to find Lauren."
The Spierers said when it comes to finding Lauren they will stop at nothing to find her. After seemingly searching everywhere, the family turned to Private Investigator Bo Dietl for help.
"It's additional resources to help with the investigation" said Robert Spierer. "The Bloomington Police are still active, but this is just another group that is available to help and track down leads and help find Lauren."
After being told to leave town, private eye Bo Dietl is coming back. Robert Spierer said despite comments Dietl made on live TV, he is confident everyone can work together.
"I think that's in the past and forgotten and apologized for, so I don't think that's an issue" said Robert.
The Spierers are headed back to New York to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday, the first one without Lauren.
"It can't be harder than it already is," said Charlene.
"Every day is hard, it's not marked by a holiday," said Robert. "It is not really a meaningful difference to us."
Lauren Spierer is described as approximately four feet, 11 inches tall 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. Anyone with information should call Bloomington police at 812-339-4477.
Spierer's mother Charlene Spierer said Lauren has a life-threatening heart condition called Long QT Syndrome. Her mother has asked if anyone knows where Lauren is, to please take her to a hospital.
