BROWN COUNTY, Ind. (WISH) - As investigators work to determine the identity of bones found in Brown County, families of missing people wait.
The Spierers are among those families. Their daughter, Lauren Spierer, disappeared after a night out with friends in Bloomington on June 3, 2011.
24-Hour News 8 Reporter Dustin Grove spoke to Lauren Spierer's mother, Charlene, on Wednesday about the effort to revamp billboards originally put up to help in the search effort. Charlene Spierer also spoke about the remains found in Brown County, which officials said are thought to be female.
Charlene Spierer said she knew about the remains found and that Bloomington police would keep her updated.
"My husband and I always ask each other, 'What do you want the results to be?'" she said. "On the one hand, we want to find Lauren so desperately, and on the other hand, it just means that we're moving into the next phase of the nightmare for us. We want to know where Lauren is but by the same token, you never really want that phone call."
Brown County officials are using dental records to work to identify the remains. They expect to know more next week.
