Parents of Edgemont girl missing 4 weeks remain hopeful

It's been just under a month since Edgemont-native Lauren Spierer vanished in Indiana, and while massive searches for her there have ended, her parents say they remain vigilant and hopeful.

Thousands of volunteers turned out to help search the Bloomington area last week but no trace of the 20-year-old was found.

Indiana police say they've shut down a makeshift search headquarters and will now focus on investigative leads. They're no longer asking volunteers to look for the college student.

Spierer disappeared in the early morning hours of June 3 after a night of partying with friends. Thousands of tips have poured in but police say they're no closer to finding her.

Despite the new direction in the investigation, Spierer's parents say they're refusing to give up hope that Lauren will be found.

The Spierers say they plan to remain in Indiana and have scheduled a press conference for tomorrow.Indiana police pull back volunteer searches for missing studentParents plead for public's help in missing student caseSearch for Lauren Spierer reaches Day 14
