Parents of Lauren Spierer meet with person of interest

The parents of missing college student Lauren Spierer met with one of the persons of interest in her case today.

Officials say the 20-year-old disappeared in Indiana almost five months ago. Now, Jason Rosenbaum, who had been accused of withholding information on her case, has met with her parents and offered to do what he could to help in the investigation.

Rosenbaum claims he watched Lauren leave his apartment on the night of June 3, but couldn't offer up more information than that to police until this recent meeting.

Rosenbaum and his attorney issued the following statement about the private meeting: "Since day one Jason has been cooperative and continues to be so today. Jason adamantly denies any involvement in Lauren's disappearance and sincerely hopes for her to be found, safe and sound."

Rosenbaum is just one of several persons of interest in this case but his attorney went on to say that he provided full statements to the authorities, allowed investigators to search his home, and agreed to give a DNA sample.
