Parents plead for public's help in missing student case

The parents of missing Edgemont native Lauren Spierer thanked their family and friends for support today as the search for their daughter passed the two-week mark, and made another plea to help find her.

Police in Bloomington, Ind. say they are now pouring through more than 1,000 tips that they've received since releasing security camera images of Spierer and of a truck that was seen circling the area where she was last seen.

Spierer's parents made another plea for information during a news conference today. They broke down as they expressed gratitude to everyone who donated to a yoga fundraiser held in Westchester last night, which raised more than $6,000 toward the search.

Authorities say they are still investigating whether Spierer overdosed on cocaine, but say they are not ruling out a random abduction.

"America's Most Wanted" will be airing a second segment on Spierer this weekend and police continue to urge the public to come forward with any information.
