Landfill company in talks with FBI on search for missing student

It has been two months since an Indiana University student from Westchester went missing and now a landfill company says its been in talks with FBI officials about a possible search.

Officials say Lauren Spierer, of Edgemont, disappeared on June 3 after a night of partying near her off-campus apartment in Bloomington, Ind.

The company that owns the landfill near Terre Haute, Ind. says it has been speaking with the FBI for the past couple of weeks about a possible search of the area.

Documents obtained by WTHR-TV in Indianapolis show that on June 16, Bloomington police first asked for a search warrant for the landfill. That was just 13 days after Lauren went missing, but no action was taken until now.

Currently, Bloomington police won't talk about the investigation, possible suspects or methods they are using to try and crack the case.
