BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (WISH) – It’s been eight years since Indiana University student Lauren Spierer disappeared following a night out in Bloomington.
Her body has never been found and police have not made any arrests in the case.
In a Facebook post, Lauren’s mother, Charlene wrote about reliving the day her daughter disappeared eight years ago.
“As every June 3rd approaches, I am faced with the dread of reliving all the horrific minutes of that day and the days which followed. I now know of course, despite how desperately I wanted to believe the words ‘we will find her,’ it just wasn’t meant to be.”
She also spoke about her motivation to keep searching for Lauren.
“Hope is a strange bedfellow. Some days you want to abandon all hope but our desire to bring Lauren home whether literally or figuratively is a strong motivator.”
