Search for Lauren Spierer reaches Day 14

The search for Lauren Spierer is now in its 14th day at Indiana University and the reality that she may not be found alive is starting to set in.

Police have released enhanced video of a pickup truck shown on surveillance video circling the block during the same timeframe she disappeared and near the spot Spierer was last seen.

Police have interviewed those close to the Edgemont native, even requesting DNA samples and administering lie detector tests.

They say they have scoured through her cell phone records and text messages trying to piece together the puzzle.

While authorities are also investigating whether Spierer overdosed on cocaine, they are not ruling out a random abduction.

"All the more reason for us to find that truck and find out who was driving it, what was in it, what reason they had to be in that area and why they went around the block a couple of times," says Capt. Joe Qualters, of the Bloomington Police Department.
