BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) - Monday marks two years since Indiana University student Lauren Spierer disappeared, and since then police have fielded thousands of tips related to the case.
Bloomington Police Department officials said Friday they had received 3,060 tips between the time Spierer disappeared on June 3, 2011 and May 24 of this year.
Spierer, a sophomore at the time, went missing after a night out with friends. In the past two years, police haven't named a suspect or arrested anyone. Her parents have continually pleaded for information that would lead to their daughter.
Of the thousands of tips, police officials said 166 had been received in 2013. But little more information is known about the investigation.
"Despite being nearly two years into this investigation, information continues to come in regarding Lauren's case and investigators diligently pursue the information with the same level of commitment as in the beginning," BPD said in a news release. "No amount of time passing will deter us from our responsibility and we remain dedicated to Lauren's cause."
Recently, billboards in Bloomington with Spierer missing posters were replaced.
