IU President Michael McRobbie expresses concern for missing IU student, Lauren Spierer

June 9, 2011

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Indiana University President Michael A. McRobbie has issued a statement expressing concern for missing IU student, Lauren Spierer.

"The entire Indiana University community is deeply concerned over the disappearance of Lauren Spierer. We will continue to cooperate in every way possible with the Bloomington police and others who are conducting an intensive investigation and search for Lauren. I have met with the parents, as has Provost Karen Hanson, and we both have pledged to them that IU will do all that we can to support them and to help find out what has happened to Lauren. The Dean of Students, Pete Goldsmith, will continue to serve as the university's main contact with the family but we have deployed other university resources to this effort, as well. University police, facilities staff, campus ROTC and many other university employees have participated in the effort to find Lauren. We will continue to assist the family and the authorities in any way that we can."
